Banking On A Higher Authority

Associated Press

The names of numerous professional sports teams are on them, so are trade unions, clubs and associations. Now a church is being added to the list of groups that have an affinity credit card.

Key Federal Savings Bank has launched a new Visa card to support the Church of God in Christ, a Pentecostal denomination with 10,000 congregations nationwide.

Portions of the proceeds generated by the use of the card will be used to finance building, maintenance and other operating expenses for the church.
