Modern banking with extra perks
like respect and a welcoming handshake.

Local businesses are the backbone of our economy. They are also the heart of our communities, providing jobs, goods and services, and familiar gathering spots for friends, neighbors, and business associates who come together to share ideas and create new alliances and opportunities that move us all forward.

At First Community Bank, it is our pleasure to meet the needs of these local businesses and their owners with thoughtful counsel, financing, and a full continuum of products and services designed just for them. As a true community bank, it is our mission to do it well.
