ELCA Federal Credit Union opens
The ELCA Federal Credit Union celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony June 6 at its headquarters in the Lutheran Center in Chicago. The credit union serves ELCA members, synod employees, congregations and ELCA-related ministries. It is the first of the ELCA’s financial ministries to offer individual consumer loans.

“This is responsible stewardship,” said Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton at the ribbon cutting. “It makes services available to everyone. The ELCA Credit Union is socially responsible and is a great benefit not only to members of the ELCA churchwide organization but to all our members across the church.” Watch the video.
