Stories of Impact and Information

News From Our Member Network

Each event in your Thrivent Member Network gives attendees an opportunity to advance their "Wise With Money" journey and/or live generously by impacting nonprofit organizations in local communities. 

Spring 2020 has been busy so far, despite limitations to in-person gatherings. We hosted retirement speaker Tom Hegna virtually in April with over 200 Iowans registering - incredible! In the early months, we continued hosting our "Thrivent Thursdays" where members and prospects could visit with us about what it means to be a Thrivent member over a cup of coffee.

We virtually hosted a Power of Membership webinar to help members understand the variety of membership benefits they have at their fingertips, as well as a Wedding Planning Tips, Tricks, & Budgeting webinar for new couples to learn to successfully combine financials and money values together.

We are seeking to provide a virtual annual member celebration, complete with an aspect of entertainment as well as additional financial education workshops in the coming months. So many great things are happening already, and we can't wait to bring you additional offerings!

Impact in Our Area

Take a closer look and you’ll see the causes that are near and dear to our members’ hearts. That’s what’s so exciting about our Thrivent Member Network. It makes it easy to make an impact in all kinds of ways! Regional food banks, animal shelters, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, churches, nonprofits – the list goes on. Our Thrivent Member Network gives you the opportunity to help support and celebrate what’s important to you and your family.

The Thrivent Member Network - Greater Iowa partnered with Riverside Bible Camp for Giving Tuesday. Thrivent offered a $20,000 match for funds raised, and the camp raised over $90,000 that evening! We had a beautiful Christmas-decorated event including chili + cornbread supper, silent auction, giving tree, cookie + cinnamon roll sales, ornament sales, camp gift store, carols + worship songs, testimonials, and so much more!

On Veteran's Day, Thrivent members helped raise awareness and $400 for two Veteran-serving nonprofits: Retrieving Freedom and Patriots for Pets. The service dogs came out to visit, too! 

Power of Membership: Thrivent members enjoyed dinner and interactive learning stations to activate their Thrivent membership benefits and use them to impact their communities. Thrivent members enjoy the priviledge of making the most of their lives on their Wise with Money Journey!
