Learn About Chapters
One thing that makes Thrivent Financial for Lutherans unique is our chapters. As a fraternal benefit society, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans operates through nearly 1,400 local groups of members called chapters. The chapter system is a way for members to help through volunteering, educational events and social activities.
Why do Chapters Exist?
Chapters create meaningful ways for members to come together to strengthen the communities and congregations they care about. They also provide a greater sense of ownership and advocacy within Thrivent Financial.
Getting involved with your local chapter is a great way to connect with others and invest in your community and congregation.
How do Chapters Work?
Each chapter is led by a chapter leadership board consisting of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans members, elected by chapter members. The board is responsible for promoting and supporting programs and activities. The board also manages and administers the Care Abounds in Communities® chapter program locally.
Through this program activities conducted by community service teams are made up of a group of Thrivent Financial members and non-members who come together to help an individual, family in need or a not-for-profit organization. Service teams can also carry out member social and educational activities. The board also appoints congregational advocates for each congregation in the chapter.
