Thrivent (formerly Thrivent Financial for Lutherans) is a non-profit that offers financial products and services. We want to know if you are a Thrivent member, because Thrivent members can apply for two Action Team grants for $250 each, every year! We've used these in the past to fund/support service projects, fellowship, and education. (You can also be an associate Thrivent member without any financial products, for a small fee each year and apply for one!) Please let Sophie Guiny, firstname.lastname@example.org know if you are a Thrivent member and willing to apply for an Action Team grant in the future.
We are a part of the Metro DC Synod, the regional expression of denomination, the ELCA. Each year our synod gathers for an assembly, to hear reports, vote on matters, as well as to be inspired in worship, sharing, and learning as and about the wider church. Congregations each send one or more delegates as "voting members" - are you interested in serving/attending this year? Synod assembly is Saturday, June 3 at Good Shepherd Lutheran in Gaithersburg, MD. If you are interested in learning more or attending, please speak with Pastor Brett or Cassandra Kuball. For more information go to https://metrodcelca.org/2023assembly/
Along with other DC Lutherans, we have an opportunity to join in and share some affirming Lutheran presence as a part of the DC Pride Parade on Saturday, June 10. Interested in participating? Meet at 2pm at Augustana Lutheran, DC with good walking shoes and energy for the parade!
