    Direct Choice Dollars


    During this special time of year, we pause to reflect on all for which we are thankful: Family, Friends and Faith.


    One way for eligible Thrivent Financial members to show their thanks is by directing Choice Dollars to St. Michael Lutheran Church. If you are a Thrivent member who has Choice Dollars, prayerfully consider this opportunity to recommend where Thrivent distributed some of its charitable outreach funds by directing them to St. Michael.
