Gratitude challenge

How about practicing gratitude by participating in a Synod-wide Challenge?

Q4 Challenge: Gratitude BINGO PLUS

Nov. 17-Dec. 13

100 Vitality Points

You have 25 days to practice gratitude using some creative ways. To earn points, you must complete TWO rows of activities – either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. When you’re finished, you should have done 10 things to boost your attitude of gratitude.

Here’s how the Challenge will work:

Starting Nov. 17, track your progress on this BINGO card. You can also find the card in your “Vitality Points Planner” under the "Wellness Challenge” tile.

  • Once BINGO is reached, submit your document or a picture of it to Vitality via the "Gratitude Bingo+" tile within the "Wellness Challenges" category through your “Vitality Points Planner” (only one submission accepted).
  • Entries must be submitted by Dec. 17 to receive points.

Challenge yourself to be more grateful!
