On three upcoming Wednesdays (Sept. 13, Oct. 11, Nov. 8), Wines on Main in downtown Chelsea will be the location for an event called Wine-Tasting Wednesdays.

The event is being hosted by Thrivent Financial®, and it will be an opportunity to get questions answered about social security, retirement, and more.

“We decided to take this approach for Wine-Tasting Wednesdays because it provides us the opportunity to meet people in a casual, stress-free setting,” said Amy VanHevel, Financial Associate at Thrivent Financial®. “People will get to know us as a husband (Eric VanHevel) and wife team and will hopefully feel comfortable to ask general questions about finances. It also gives us the opportunity to start to build new relationships with people, which we value more than anything in doing this job.”

Thrivent Financial is a not-for-profit member-owned organization of Christians that has been around for more than 100 years.

“We feel it is our mission to help Christians to make wise decisions with money,” said VanHevel. “As husband and wife, we find so much joy in meeting with people together.”

VanHevel says that Pam Conn, owner of Wines on Main, has been very supportive in helping to plan the events.

“As a fellow Chelsea Chamber of Commerce member, we want to support local businesses whenever we can,” said VanHevel.

Wine-Tasting Wednesdays will run from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Wines on Main, 110 North Main St. and will also include light hors d’oeuvres. Anyone planning to attend is asked to RSVP one week before the desired date by calling the Chelsea Group at 734-385-7435 or by emailing chelseagroup@thrivent.com.
