About Our Membership

The Credit Union was formed in 1948 to serve ministers of the Methodist Churches in Southern California and Arizona. Today, our membership includes churches, clergy, staff, lay members and congregations and their family members, in the California-Pacific Conference, Desert Southwest Conference, California-Nevada Conference, Pacific-Northwest Conference, Oregon-Idaho Conference, Rocky Mountain Conference, Yellowstone Conference, New England Conference, and the Alaska Missionary Conference of the United Methodist Church, as well the Arizona Episcopal Diocese.

Also included in the membership are organizations affiliated with these conferences, such as, employees and students of The School of Theology at Claremont and the Cokesbury stores within the boundaries of the Conferences. Anyone related to a United Methodist FCU member by blood, marriage or adoption is also eligible for membership. There is a one-time membership fee of $5.00.

To become a member, you need to determine if you fall within the boundaries of any of the conferences, associations or organizations mentioned above. We can provide you with membership application forms when you call in with your request, or you may apply online. Return these forms, along with your one time $5.00 membership fee, and your initial minimum deposit of $25.00 for your Share Account. Of course, there is no maximum amount you may wish to deposit to open your account. Deposits are insured to $250,000 with National Credit Union Administration.Click here to download our membership application.
