Welcome to Dieterich Bank – Lake Sara Branch. You can’t miss our red tin roof, our large T-shaped window and bright LED sign.

We’ve been serving the Lake Sara area since 1999 and moved to our current location in 2006. When you visit us, you’re treated like family – because you basically are! Our employees are your friends and neighbors, and we are always ready to help take care of all your banking needs with a smile.

At Dieterich Bank, we are passionate about being involved with our community. We donate to local charities every month, including Freedom Ministers, To Freedom 68 and Lake Sara Forever. We also donate money to Lake Sara Fire Works every year and Beecher City throughout the summer for tractor pulls and mud drags. We have even donated to individual people’s charities to cover medical costs in past years – because sometimes the community needs to come together.

Our support for the community doesn’t stop there. We regularly donate items to raffles for the Effingham County Fair and local prom. We also support White Tails Unlimited with their yearly banquet and local schools with yearbook ads and more. You’ll likely see our employees volunteering their time at these events and more throughout the community. We love helping Lake Sara be the best community it can be!

As a bank, we offer a wide variety of high-quality products and services, including loans that come with competitive rates and a professional lender to guide you through the process, perk-filled checking accounts, great investment accounts, business accounts and more.  We also accept local utility bills and property taxes, and soon we will be selling license plate sticker renewals as well!

Come inside and say hi or swing through our drive-up lanes – your friends at Dieterich Bank are always ready to help!
