Welcome to Access ACS

Our parish member directory is now online! Access ACS is available to Grace Episcopal Church members through a secure log in with a username and password. After creating your account, you’ll be able to see directory information for other members, as well as make changes to your own profile information, including adding family and individual photos. When well utilized, this online resource will allow our church members to better connect and engage with one another!

To access the directory for the first time, you’ll need to create a login and password. (Scroll down for instructions.) After that you can click the “Member Directory” link located below and log in with your user name and password.
