Your Welcome Guide


Marine Bank’s merger with Morton Community Bank is drawing near, and soon we will combine our operations under the name Clock Tower Community Bank.

While we will continue to send you important information about the merger in the coming weeks, we wanted to provide you with this information resource to help you better understand how this merger will affect you.

Ensuring access to a locally-owned bank for generations to come.

Our Hometown Community Bank family has served Central Illinois for over 60 years with employee-owners who live and work in our communities.

More Locations, More Convenience

We are excited to deepen our roots in Central Illinois with the addition of the 11 locations of Marine Bank in June 2023. Starting June 12, you will have 55 Branches throughout the area to service your financial needs. 

This conversion page outlines what you can expect in the coming weeks as we work to make the transition to MCB as seamless as possible. Please review this information carefully. Our knowledgeable team members are ready to answer your questions and assist with anything you may need. More information will be added over the coming months.
