The Member Portal is a secure and easy online tool linked to our membership database that allows members and attendees to:

- Adjust privacy settings to manage what information others can view
- Opt-in/Use the Church Directory (Directory access is available to church members)
- View recent giving history (only YOU can see YOUR giving history)
Where do I find the Member Portal on the Trinity Lutheran Church and School website?
- At the top right of the Home Page, there is a green link labeled “Member Portal”
- Click on Member Portal; Questions regarding the Member Portal? Contact the Church Office, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 715.842.0769
How do I set up a Member Portal Account? (Printable version of instructions below)
- Visit our website at www.trinitywausau.org
- Click on the green Member Portal link at the top right
- Enter the email address that we have on file for you
- Create a password that is unique to your email login
- Select Enter
Create your Password using the email address that we have on file for you. As a security feature, you cannot create an account in the Member Portal without the same email address that we have in the membership system. If you cannot create an account, please call the Church Office at 715.842.0769 to insure that we have your correct email address.
Once you create a password with an email address that we have on file, you can update your family and individual profiles including address, phone number, family photo, individual photos, your interests, gifts, and you can adjust the privacy settings for the online directory.
Under each individual, you can edit Spiritual Gifts, Bible Study involvement, and Mailing preferences.
**Please use proper capitalization/formatting as this will also change your information in our Church Office database.**

Option only available if you are a Trinity Lutheran Church Member. Only members with a membership profile in our office will have access to the Member Portal.
