Impact Story

Church Christmas Clubs Keep Holidays Bright: First State Bank has had dramatic success with a big savings program that started out small. Christmas Clubs accounts were established in partnerships with local churches as a way to teach young people to save. The bank soon found that adults were eager to join the savings clubs, which pay out just before the holidays and encourage regular savings year-round. The program, now in its sixth year, has changed the savings patterns of its participants and has expanded to several local churches.

Community Banking on the Air: First State Bank’s weekly radio segment expands the institution’s financial education efforts to the whole community. The 30-minute program covers topics like how to repair a credit score, finance a vehicle, purchase a home, and evaluate a reverse mortgage.
