What is a Community Bank?

by Gary Barnoff

What is a community bank? A smaller bank that services the community in which it resides. Often that creates the mis-conception that they have less to offer than a bigger bank.

a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.

But the truth is Jarrettsville Federal is a community bank that offers all of the same great services of a larger bank, but with superior, personalized service and lower fees.

And now, Jarrettsville Federal has even more great features to tell you about. Our recent system upgrade brings you new and improved electronic banking, bill pay, and mobile banking.

We want to thank all of our existing customers for their patience as we made this transition, and we welcome all other community members that are looking for the right banking solution to stop in and plant roots.

It is easy.

  1. Stop in, open an account.
  2. Set up online and mobile banking.
  3. Enjoy digital banking, with access to a whole team of support, right in your neighborhood.


Where others have branches, we have roots.
