Doggone Cute Masks for Kids!

Check out these adorable animal masks made for Sunday School! 

Mary, a Thrivent member in Omaha, has sewn masks for the children that will attend Sunday School this fall. A former school teacher herself,  Understanding it may be difficult to get the kiddos to keep their masks on, she decided to make the masks fun and entertaining.

Mary has many different animals and styles to choose from. She cut Thrivent's Live Generously tshirts into strips for the ties on the masks. "I love the Thrivent shirts, they work so much better than all-cotton for the yarn/cord.  The material is stretchy and makes the best strips for these masks." That a great way to use those excess tshirts that come in your Thrivent Action Team project box!

Don't forget to use your Thrivent Action Team projects to support the churches and organizations you are passionate about!

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.
