Church life and AccessACS

How To Do stuff

To help our First UMC family stay better connected with each other and easily find out what is happening, we make use of various on-line utilities available via a web browser (AccessACS) or as a smart phone app (Church Life). Among the benefits of both of these are:
  • Manage your information stored in the church database
  • View your giving history and yearly pledge status
  • Find the contact information and photos for other members of the church
  • Create, view, and join activities, classes, small groups, or special groups
  • Register for events and manage registrations for yourself, family members, and guests

If you serve as a group leader, there are additional tools available that can help you manage your groups.

Getting Started

Getting started with both AccessACS and Church Life is easy.

The only thing you will need to do is set up your login name and password in AccessACS. If you have provided us with your name and email address in the past, you can use this link to the AccessACS login page.

If you don’t already have a login name and password, simply click where it asks if you need a login and provide your email address and name to get started. (If you have not provided this information in the past, simply email us the information and we’ll update your records.) You’ll then receive an email from the church with your user name and a link to set your password.

Church Life App

If you want to use the Church Life mobile app, you will first need an AccessACS user name and password. Once you have that, simply go to the App Store for your device and then install the app. The easiest way to locate the app in your app store is to search using “ACS Church Life” or the appropriate link below (using your smart phone or tablet):
Once the app is installed, you will need to use the same user name and password to log in to Church Life that you use to log in to AccessACS. If you have problems or questions, contact Larry Resch at
