A message from Community First Bank about the coronavirus (COVID-19)


Effective Monday, December 14, 2020, Community First Bank’s lobbies will be closed to walk in traffic. As the markets we serve have experienced a surge of Coronavirus cases over the past few weeks, we too have felt the effects of the virus firsthand.


We will offer entrance into our lobbies by appointment and will continue to provide you with the same great service you have come to expect from Community First Bank.  You will be able to utilize our Drive-thrus, ATM’s, Online banking, Mobile banking and remote deposit capture options for your transaction services.


While many banks in the markets we serve have been closed since the pandemic began early in March, at Community First we have made every effort to remain open. However, as this pandemic continues and the numbers have been spiking around us, our banks’ top priority is the health and safety of our employees, customers, and the communities we serve.


If you need assistance setting up online or mobile banking tools and would like to schedule an appointment to conduct business in person, or have any other questions, please reach out to us at (864)364-6130. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our branch locations if you have any questions or concerns about your personal or business financial affairs.


Please visit our website for updates www.C1stBank.com.


As I have indicated before, this pandemic is a health crisis and is not a banking crisis. Community First Bank is very well capitalized, financially strong, and we are here for you. We are all in this together, and at Community First Bank, “We Know What Matters”.


Wishing you all a healthy and safe Holiday Season and a very Merry Christmas.


Thank you,


Richard D. Burleson

President and Chief Executive Officer
