CEO CORNER: New Headquarters Welcomes Christian Financial Employees
10/1/2019

Last month Christian Financial opened its doors to welcome employees at our new headquarters in Sterling Heights. The last few weeks have been filled with anticipation and enthusiasm as staff members explore their new surroundings and settle into their new working spaces. Having our back office operations under one roof is a special treat, as previous space constraints kept our operations separated amongst several branches.
 
Our new work space features many themed environments to spark inspiration and creativity, including a park, theater, vibrant city street, hotel lobby, scenic walking trail and apple orchard, among others. It is conducive to innovation, with plenty of space to collaborate and brainstorm new ideas to transform our members’ lives. The focus on our members and our mission has never been more transparent or more tangible. Daily we are reminded of our core values and our reason for being – our members.

Although our new headquarters is a non-transactional branch, we welcome our members to walk our grounds or pick some Red Delicious apples from one of our 35 apple trees. Pack your lunch and enjoy a picnic by one of our scenic areas.  You can also enjoy walking the trail in front of our building and explore the natural beauty.

As summer turns to fall, we are humbled by the gift of longevity (nearly 70 fruitful years!) and with the opening of our new headquarters, have enjoyed reflecting on the seasons of our credit union history that brought us to this significant landmark. It’s an exciting time to be a member, and thank you for joining us on this journey.
 
International Credit Union Day: A Day to Thank Our Members

On October 17, 2019, join Christian Financial in celebrating International Credit Union (ICU) Day®! This day celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement, when we reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognize the tenacity and diligence of its leaders, share member experiences and thank credit union members.

For you because of you,
