Clergy Email Accounts

Google is requiring password updates for some of our clergy accounts ( This update is being done to ensure that all users have passwords that meet Google's current password standards. Google will start forcing password updates on May 28, and will reset passwords on any accounts not updated by June 3. It is also highly recommended that clergy use 2-factor authentication with their clergy accounts ( The 2-factor authentication protects accounts from unauthorized access. It is the simplest thing clergy can do to help keep their accounts safe and secure. To ensure you have continuous and secure access to your account:

  • Log in to Gmail

  • Reset your password

  • Turn on 2-factor authentication

It’s nice to share that we had 2 new Scout units charter with the BSA in June.  As you can see below, Peachtree Road UMC started a new Crew and Duluth First UMC started a new BSA Girls Troop last month.  This raises the number of new BSA Girl Troops started in the North GA Conference since 2/1 to 19 troops and the total number of unit of all types (including GSA Troops) to 32 (since last August).  PRUMC is in the Atlanta College Park District and Duluth is in the Atlanta Emory District.  Congrats to Ernest and Jeff (ACPK) and Austin (Atl-Emory) for these new units.
