Well Connected - Are You? 


When we updated our brand one year ago and selected "Connecting Communities" as our tagline, it was intentional. Guthrie County State Bank is on a mission to provide you with the tools and resources you need to stay connected to your community and your banking needs. Last month, we introduced Mobile Banking, Check Free Bill Pay, Pop Money and coming soon, Event Manager - all tools that can simplify managing your money and give you more time for other things. Read on for more information about these exciting new products!

To better connect you to our products and services, we're introducing our Online Education Center - a collection of seven short tutorial videos that will help our customers receive more information. Key topics include mobile banking, identity theft, online bill pay and debit cards. Check out these helpful tools and let us know what you think!

Should you have any questions about the newsletter or any of the information featured, please connect with us at contact@gcsbank.com and thank you for reading.
