What is REALM? REALM is a real ministry tool.


REALM is an online ministry tool designed for real time connection. It helps our church staff and ministry leaders connect with you, and it helps you connect with us. If you consider yourself part of this church family, you’ll love it! REALM allows you to manage your personal information and who is allowed to see it, control your giving, and keep in touch with the groups that matter to you.


Why use REALM? REALM strengthens church connections.


Being a part of the Body of Christ does not just happen at the church building on Sundays. REALM helps us serve you better and engages everyone in the life of our church by supporting the healthy relationships essential to our mission - to Know, Love, and Serve. We’ll stay organized, and you’ll stay informed about all of the opportunities for fellowship. When we share life together, we will grow together.


What about my privacy? Realm is safe, private, and secure.


Your privacy is one of our greatest concerns. REALM is only made up of the people in our parish, it’s not like a social network that’s open to everyone. REALM keeps your data safe and gives you control over what information you share and who can see it.


What about giving? Realm gives you control over your giving.


Giving should be easy, and REALM places giving right in the palm of your hands. You may set up recurring gifts, view your giving history, and make changes at any time. REALM automatically records all electronic gifts and adds them to your giving record making it easy for you to give, and easy for our bookkeeper to track. REALM also processes our payments for different parish events and programs that require registration.
