History

The credit union was formed in 1935 by phone employees in the Davenport district.  The first office was located in the phone company building at 523 Main Street, Davenport, Iowa.  The credit union office moved to 1007 E. Kimberly Road, Davenport, Iowa in 1984 and then to its present location at 709 E. 46th St., Davenport, Iowa in December, 2004.  In 1993 Southeast Iowa Catholic Credit Union merged with the then-named Davenport Bell Credit Union.  In 1994 the name of the credit union was changed to Communications & Catholic Credit Union to reflect both the telephone employees and Catholic membership.

In July of 2008 GPC Credit Union was merged into the credit union, which allowed us to have an office in Muscatine, IA.  In June of 2011 the credit union was approved for a community charter, and the name changed to Bent River Community Credit Union. In April of 2016, Bent River Credit Union divested the Muscatine branch location to Marine Credit Union in order to focus on serving the Quad City area.
