Growth Bond Savings Stamp Redemption

While the Growth Bond Program administered by the Central Illinois District Church Extension Fund (CID-CEF) is now officially terminated, you still have time to request redemption of any unused stamps, partially completed growth bond books, and unsubmitted growth bond books! They will be redeemed at stamp face value upon presentation but must be received by December 31, 2021, for redemption.

Please submit for redemption all unused stamps and stamps in booklets by December 31, 2021, to the CID-CEF (1850 N. Grand Ave. W., Springfield, IL  62702). We ask churches and schools to please communicate this request as necessary to members of their congregations and schools.

We thank you for participating in the Growth Bond program and pray that your youth have likewise grown spiritually from the knowledge that they have assisted with reaching souls by providing the use of their treasures to build and grow our churches and schools in the Central Illinois District.








The CID-CEF Office is open Monday - Friday, 8am - 4pm.
Please call (217) 793-1802 with questions.
