Dozens and Dozens of Donuts!

Recycling for Creighton, NE is taken care of by an all-volunteer team. In response to a safety issue with the overhead garage doors at the recycling center, Jan (a Thrivent member) applied to use a Thrivent Action Team to host a fundraiser for new doors. 

205 dozen donuts later, Jan and her team raised $1400 for the new garage doors for the town's recycling center. And boy do those doors look wonderful! Great job, team!! #LiveGenerously

Honor the Brave and Let Your Flag Wave!  
May 22 - June 14, 2020

Memorial Weekend through Flag Day, we encouraged communities to fly a flag in honor of those that have lost their lives, and those working courageously on the front lines.

THANK YOU to everyone that participated in our "Honor the Brave, Let Your Flag Wave" virtual patriotic event from Memorial Weekend through Flag Daye!

$5000 was gifted to the First Responders Foundation as a generosity multiplier for everyone's efforts in sharing images of flags on our Facebook page.
Big flags, small flags. Flags on parade, flags on tractors, flags at half-mast. New flags, old flags, even a flag that was recovered from a flood.

Visit our Facebook post to enjoy a sampling of flags that were shared.

LOCAL IMPACT

When Thrivent members come together to share their time, talents and treasures, something amazing happens! Communities are strengthened. Lives are changed. And the impact of their efforts creates a ripple effect of generosity.

Locally, Thrivent members have joined together to help families in need, support their congregations and make a difference right where they live, work and worship. Through our Thrivent Member Network, they’ve held fundraisers for causes they care about. They’ve organized service projects to help families in need and learned new ways to be wise with what they’ve been given. And their passion to help others continues to make an impact in nearly every corner of our wonderful community.

If you’re already involved in the Thrivent Member Network, you know there are even more great things we can do together! If you’d like to join us in making a difference in people’s lives – including your own –check out the Upcoming Events section. We’d love to have you join us!  

Flood Relief Big Day of Service

In Fremont, nearly 50 people chipped in over 400 volunteer hours as we moved LOTS of donations, painted a basement, replaced drywall, hauled away 4 trailer loads of ruined belongings, and delivered bottled water, snacks, and household cleaning supplies to residents in a mobile home park.

Thank you to all the Thrivent members, advisors and friends that helped make the day great!

Annual Member Meetings

Three Annual Member Meeting Celebration July events, hosted in Ashland, Norfolk, and Grand Island, brought nearly 900 Thrivent members, their families, and friends together for an evening of inspiration. The events provided 2000+ volunteer hours from 12 service projects.

Our guest speaker, Retired Astronaut Clayton Anderson, is a down-to-earth kind of guy and the crowd loved him! His presentation was educational, engaging, and very entertaining.

Habitat and Thrivent Faith Builds

Local Christian churches come together to raise walls, funds, and prayers in partnership to build a house for a family. In 2020, there will be SIX Faith Build homes being constructed in our region: Bellevue, Columbus, Council Bluffs, Fremont, Lincoln, and Omaha.

We invite you to take part in a Faith Build near you. By volunteering, you become part of a movement to help make decent, affordable housing a possibility for more families.
