Dear members and friends,
Like a cool spring breeze, the winds of change are bringing exciting new developments to the members of America's Christian Credit Union.
I'm pleased to announce the addition of two more remarkable ministries to our list of GiveBack Visa partners. As we continue proudly to provide monetary support to The Brooklyn Tabernacle's Global Relief Fund and the Church of the Nazarene's World Mission Broadcast through this program, we are also adding The Legacy Center of Christ Tabernacle as well as New Beginnings Adoption & Family Services to the lineup. These wonderful ministry partners now benefit whenever an ACCU Platinum Visa credit card is used to make a purchase.
Continuing to make adoption affordable for hundreds of 'forever families' is not new for us. We are honored in being recognized by adoption agencies nationwide as a preferred adoption lender. What is new is A Call To Pray For Adoption, a public prayer event hosted by ACCU to engage our members and the community in calling for God's favor and provision on the sacred process of adoption. It was held on February 27 in front of our Home Office in Glendora. We felt God's presence that morning, and expect to make this an annual event here at ACCU.
Rapidly becoming a staple of service to our members is our FREE Financial Check-up. Rates continue to hover near all-time lows, and we are eager to help advise you on the ways we can save you money. If you haven't already done so, contact one of our friendly, knowledgeable, service-minded representatives soon!
We are just weeks away from celebrating the 55th anniversary of the founding of our member-owned financial institution. We will celebrate this milestone with pride and enthusiasm when we convene for our Annual Meeting on the evening of Friday, May 3. We continue to value and honor you, our members, for your trust, your membership, and your support.
And I'd be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the outstanding efforts of our staff as we go through the nuts and bolts of a core system conversion this year. Everyone is going above and beyond to ensure that the conversion, which is scheduled to be effective in early June, is a complete success, and positions us to elevate our service and efficiency to new levels.
We wish you all the joys of the spring as you celebrate the season of Easter and His glorious resurrection. Your loyal membership is what makes us strong and vibrant which enables us to serve more members. We thank God for the 55 years of growth and excellence, along with a Christ-honoring reputation that you have helped our credit union achieve.
