Destination—Globe Life Park Local Church Members Cheer on the Rangers!

Matt Swarbrick, Certified Wealth Adviser for Thrivent Financial, had been working to help our church members and others attend a Texas Rangers game by hosting a “Thrivent Night at the Park.” Holly Shelton, Office Professional for Texas Region Ridgemont Associates, not too long after, sent a message to our Church, “We have decided to make the event (the baseball game) free!”

The event was the Wednesday night, June 19, Texas Rangers Baseball game vs. the Cleveland Indians. My wife and I already had tickets for the Tuesday night game and decided to “spend the night” after the first game, do some sightseeing the next morning and early afternoon, and then attend the Wednesday night game with our Church, Water of Life Lutheran in Forney, Texas.

We were overjoyed to hear that the tickets from Thrivent were in the “lower homerun porch” (under the overhang that protects from sun and rain) and afforded a great view of the game! Word spread, and soon, many of our members, and others from area churches that had Thrivent members, had registered for the tickets, made transportation plans, and were excited about attending.
