Our Joy Of Serving Others Is Our Common Bond

Nobel Peace Prize winner Albert Schweitzer is quoted as saying…“One thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.”

If “really happy” is a by-product of serving people, then there’s no happier place on earth than St. Louis Community Credit Union. Your credit union is jam packed with the joy of serving others.

St. Louis Community Credit Union employees are a diverse group of people drawn together by this appreciation for serving. We are a racial and ethnic melting pot. We are young in age, mature in years, and every age in between – all with a young and energized heart for serving. We are diverse in our socio-economic backgrounds and equally different in our respective educational backgrounds. We are single, married, parents, grandparents – heck, there may even be some great grandparents sprinkled in along the way. We live in the city, the county, even a different state. Some rent homes, others own their homes, and some live with parents. We are far from homogenous, yet ideologically we are all exactly the same.

We love to serve our members. We appreciate the responsibility members afford us to help manage their money. To serve our communities with a heartfelt, loving sincerity is what brings us together. Yes, we’re a diverse group (and we love it) until you start talking servant hood, then we’re pretty much the same. It makes for a great place to work, a great place to serve, and a great place to be happy.

Mr. Schweitzer apparently knew exactly what he was talking about.
