Access ACS Database is Live

Albany Presbytery Access ACS Directory FB

Our new Access ACS database is live.

What this means is you can now search for anyone who serves in the Presbytery and for their contact information online. You also have your own unique login which is tied to the primary email address that the Presbytery office has for you.

When you login in, you will see your contact info from the office and can update and add information as needed.  Because everyone has the ability to update his/her own information, those updates are now each person’s individual responsibility.

When you login to the Directory page of the website you will see a link to Access ACS and then also links below that to the various lists of persons in the Presbytery. If you have any questions please contact the Presbytery office at [email protected] or 518-273-4991.

The purpose of the Albany Presbytery Blog is to share information, tell stories, and promote the mission and ministry of the presbytery, synod and beyond.  While the breadth of this medium is intentionally broad, it is not a platform for opinion pieces related to business coming before the presbytery unless designed as part of an initiative to provide a diversity of viewpoints at the direction of the presbytery council.  Exceptions to this policy may be brought to the presbytery officers who will determine appropriateness of submissions.
