Christian Community Credit Union’s card that “Gives to Missions” program has a mission of its own. Every time members make a purchase using their Christian Community Credit Union credit or debit card, the Credit Union donates to missions and ministries. The donation is based on the interchange income – the amount that merchants pay to card issuers such as the Credit Union. Donation recipients are primarily ministries and organizations who are members of Christian Community Credit Union. Through the years, the Credit Union’s credit card program has contributed to the following:

  • International Missions
  • Christian and Regional Ministries
  • College and Seminary Scholarships
  • Disaster Relief
  • New Church Planting
  • Camping Ministries
  • Other Ministry Projects
