Update January 7, 2021
While we were hoping that we could revert to our usual branch access on January 11, 2021, the provincial restrictions remain in place and look to continue for a while longer. As a result, we will continue to handle our in-person interactions with members by appointment only until January 29, 2021.
We have been able to adequately serve our members with appointment only service and we thank our members for their understanding with this inconvenience. We will do our best to accommodate all members and we ask for your continued patience at this time. Thank you for choosing Christian Credit Union and if there is anything we could do to assist you with your financial needs, please do not hesitate to contact us.
John W. Veldkamp, CEO
As you are aware, all Albertans are being asked to help “bend the curve” and to help reduce the rise in COVID-19 cases and consequently hospitalizations in Alberta. At Christian Credit Union, we have considered the recommendations and we want to do our part.
Effective Monday, November 30, in-person interactions with our members will be by appointment only. We will not be available for walk-in traffic. This will be the same as we operated in April and May earlier this year. Our expectation is that this is a temporary measure for three weeks, but we will monitor the situation as it unfolds and will update you if there is a change.
If you do come in for an in-person appointment, please remember that you are required to wear a mask in our building. We realize that some people may have a medical reason for not wearing a mask – we are certainly willing to accommodate such situations, but we will require evidence of this medical reason so please bring this along with you if you have an appointment.
Please be assured that we continue to be available to our members by phone, email, our website and social media in addition to in-person appointments. We recognize that this is a challenging time for many of our members and we are here to come alongside you with advice and support. As a cooperative, we have always been there for each other and together we can get through this pandemic as well.
Most importantly, we encourage you to find your hope and confidence in our faithful God and Father who is in control of all things. A helpful passage to meditate on during this time is Psalm 27. While I encourage you to read the entire Psalm, I will end with the words of verses 1, 5 and 14.
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
