Thrivent Action Teams
It all begins with a desire to help. There are many projects here at Bear Creek Camp that you could help with! Or you could do something to reach out into your communities!
You could help:
- Clean and Prep a Trail
- Rake Leaves
- Raise money for Camperships
- Raise money to bring a BCC Day Camp to your Congregation
- All it takes is for you to bring a team or two or more together and take action!
If you or one of your friends is a Thrivent member, Thrivent helps get your idea rolling. It’s easy! It’s called a Thrivent Action Team, a benefit of Thrivent membership.
When you apply to lead a team, Thrivent sends you $250 in seed money for project expenses as well as other resources to put your team together and turn your idea into reality.
Your $250 can pay for project expenses, buy building materials, pay for food for your team, launch a fundraiser, or help buy the tools you’ll need to make your project happen!
This sounds awesome, but what are the guidelines?
Thrivent Action Teams are all about activating Thrivent members to live out Thrivent’s mission on the ground … in their own way, around the needs in their local communities. Here are some guidelines to consider when planning your projects:
- Involve others. It’s about your friends, family and community coming together to serve to have a greater impact.
- Seed money. Use your $250 to purchase project supplies and materials to make it a success!
- One Action Team, one project. Multiple Thrivent Action Teams cannot be used for the same project – you can support the same cause, but use your creativity to generate new project ideas to attract more volunteers and have an even greater impact!
- Report. Share your stories, photos and participant info with Lutherhaven and with Thrivent after your event – this must be completed before applying to lead your next Thrivent Action Team!
How often am I eligible?
Each Thrivent member 16 years old and older is eligible to lead two Thrivent Action Teams per calendar year!
