Thrive e-blast for 10.29.19: Clock is Ticking to Register for Thrive! Training

Clock is Ticking to Register for Thrive! Training

It is almost time for the first of five scheduled Congregation Leader Training events (see below). Your leader will not only learn how to implement the Thrive! Campaign but will also be equipped to lead a special gift appeal in your own congregation. But your action is needed now to assure you have all that is needed for your congregation.

We need Congregation Leaders to be registered in advance for the training event that works best for them because, in addition to receiving training, those Leaders will also receive enough brochures, bulletin inserts, and other printed Thrive! materials for their congregations’ campaigns. We need advance notice in order to have enough material available for each congregation.

Please act now to register your Leaders for their preferred training event! You may now register online by using the new Fillable Congregation Leader Registration Form. Or if you prefer, download and complete this Congregation Leader Appointment Form, and either email it to or mail a copy to the Synod office.
