Thrivent Financial for Lutherans members are organized into local groups, called chapters, to plan and conduct charitable, social and educational activities. Becoming involved with a local chapter is a great way to connect with others and invest in our community and congregation.
TFL is an organization that honors volunteerism and can sponsor activities to raise money for individuals in need (we helped a burn victim and a cancer patient), the church (raised money for debt reduction), community projects (placed benches on the Nickel Plate Trail and for Highway beautification), or world-wide projects (Riley Hospital through the Air Show). There are many other activities with which we have been affiliated, and every one of them has involved many, many volunteers and many volunteer hours.
Fund-raisers include the enormously popular Easter Breakfast as well as candy sales, and Kroger gift cards.
Thrivent Financial for Lutherans offers three chapter Care programs that encourage our members and others to come together, through grassroots volunteer activities, to help those in need and to benefit communities and Lutheran congregations/organizations.
