Fellowship Credit Union has been serving Colorado communities since 1959. Over the years, our field of membership has grown along with our credit union which has merged with both East Prowers Federal Credit Union in 1986 and St. Francis Credit Union in 2006.

The credit union movement all started with one idea in mind – to help people in the community with their financial needs. Credit unions are not-for-profit financial institutions that offer many of the same products and services as banks – including savings and checking accounts, loans, ATMs and online banking.

The diverse staff of Fellowship Credit Union excels at member service, striving to provide an honest, hometown experience often lost in the advancing automation of our society. While our technology and services are state-of-the-art, our commitment to personalized service promotes loyalty and long-term relationships with our members. Several associates are bilingual, and credit counseling is available for those aspiring to improve their financial outlook.

What sets us apart is the credit union “people helping people” philosophy that saves members money. We’re owned by our members, not shareholders, which means we’re able to offer our members better rates and lower fees than other financial institutions.

We realize that everyone needs a little help now and then. To help our members, Fellowship Credit Union offers various loans, from automobile loans to overdraft protection loans, and a Visa Credit Card – all with great competitive rates and low or no fees. Fellowship Credit Union is here to help our members either find their “home sweet home” or finance a major expense with a mortgage loan or home equity line of credit. Our business and agriculture loans offer flexible terms and competitive fixed rates to help our members succeed.

Fellowship Credit Union believes in investing in our community, and proudly supports our local schools, commerce activities, county fairs, and many area fundraisers. The devotion of Fellowship Credit Union is highlighted through the Fellowship Credit Union – Suposs Youth Financial Education Foundation, Inc. Established in 2008, the Foundation has been raising funds to provide scholarships and ongoing youth financial education training and materials for local students. Fifteen area students have benefited from scholarships funded by the Foundation, and continued growth will impact many future scholars.
