Website hosting being retired

In April, Thrivent Financial began communicating about its intention to retire Lutheransonline. In October, notices were sent to web administrators indicating that hosted websites would be discontinued by the end of the year. To assist those remaining websites make a transition to a new webhost provider, we are extending this date to January 31, 2016.

We know that your website may be an important part of how your organization connects with the wider community (or how you connect with family and friends), so we want to ensure that this change will have minimal impact to your organization (or to you) and its web presence. If you would like to continue to maintain a web presence, you will need to transfer your website to a new web hosting services.

You are free to find a web host of your choosing, or you can take advantage of a special offer Thrivent has arranged with the web hosting provider Finalweb to transfer existing websites over to this new provider. In transferring to Finalweb, you receive the following benefits:

  • Your own unique web address (e.g.,
  • The transfer of your web content to your new website by Finalweb (less work for you).
  • A fresh, new website look to appeal to your site visitors.
  • Access to additional web services to build upon your online presence.

We have negotiated with Finalweb to offer you a reduced cost for their web hosting services of $21 a month. For all congregations/organizations/individuals signing up with Finalweb, Thrivent will be offering a $250 contribution towards the cost of your first year of service. To take advantage of this opportunity, you will need to establish a contract with Finalweb. You can sign up with Finalweb by going to Please make sure to review Finalweb’s policies and procedures in light of the website content and services that you require. Finalweb’s services may not be appropriate for your website content and the security controls they provide. Please remember this is a totally optional service: if you prefer to move your website to another hosting service, or would like to discontinue your website, you are free to do so.

Whether you take advantage of the offer through Finalweb or you select your own web hosting provider, you will want to update your website’s URL with your users and on any sites that may direct to your webpage (e.g., denominational church listings).
