NEIGHBORS IN NEED
THRIVENT CHALLENGE GRANT
Sandra Braasch, our Diaconal Minister, has written a grant for outreach through Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and we have received the grant.
This grant will help supplement her salary and fund some of the programs she is working on.
Thrivent will match 50 cents for every dollar given from December to March 31st.
We will be able to count general fund giving which we give for outreach and any designated gifts such as the
Day Care Center loan to receive this grant money.
Also, any additional gifts that are made which specify "challenge grant" can be included as well.
Sandra is beginning new programs that help our
neighbors in need and will also expand our congregation
in service and outreach.
Your gifts will help us to meet the needs of our neighbors.

Volunteers constitute nearly 95% of the American Red Cross's workforce. Volunteers make it possible to respond to nearly 70,000 disasters in our country each year, mostly due to home and apartment fires. During the past three (3) months alone, the Red Cross provided assistance to forty-eight (48) men, women and children right here in the greater Tullahoma area who were left homeless and in need of food and clothing assistance as result of devastating fires.
If you are interested in making a difference in our area by helping those in need, please feel free to contact Sam DiNicola, American Red Cross Disaster Action Team Caption, at 931-607-2853.
