Today, even though we’ve grown, our roots remain in community banking. Our focus is to support the communities we serve with the best possible products and services. But equally as important, is our support of the quality of life and economies in our market, not only financially, but through hard work and volunteerism.

We employ only the best, well-trained bankers, insuring our service to our customers is second to none. Our products and services are progressive, as we pride ourselves on staying up to date with constantly changing technology.
Our customers know us, they call us by name and call on us, individually, when they need help. We help them start out in life with a first house, a first car or even a first business. Or, we save them from the arms of big banks and bring them home to personal service and a real relationship. This is what we were built to do; it is our purpose.
