Learn about the Realm Connect app we plan to launch churchwide in Fall 2022.
We are excited about what Realm Connect offers us as a church family and how it helps us accomplish our purpose to bring glory to God by changing lives through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Lord willing, Realm will help us as we reach out, serve, worship, teach, and fellowship together, striving to live out the Gospel in love.
What is Realm? Realm is a real ministry tool.
Realm (also called Realm Connect) is a great ministry application and communication platform that provides tools we did not have in the past and replaces multiple applications we once had to manage separately. Connect with what’s going on at church anytime. Contact your small groups, coordinate group activities, RSVP to church events and meetings, give online, manage your giving, volunteer to serve, update your information, and more using Realm Connect.
Some really helpful Realm features members will enjoy include:
Chat and messaging with members
Newsfeed of church happenings
Online member directory
Personalized calendar of churchwide and group events
Serving teams with volunteer scheduling
Why use Realm? Realm strengthens our church connections.
Being the church doesn’t just happen at the church. Realm helps us serve each other between Sundays. Everyone can be connected from anywhere at any time, right from our mobile devices. It engages everyone in the life of our church by supporting the healthy relationships essential to our church’s purpose.
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 your church, it’s not like a social network that’s open to everyone. This is one of the reasons we are trying to get away from things like Facebook groups. 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.
How do I start? Follow a few simple steps.
In order to get started, you received an invitation to Realm from the Faith Realm Launch Team. If your invite passed you by, contact us for another. If you have already connected with Realm, login by clicking on the Realm "cloud" icon above (https://onrealm.org/faithlinden) or get the app by clicking on the applicable download button above. You can also go to your app store (Android or iOS) and search for "Realm Connect."
What if I have a new use idea for Realm? We want to hear it.
If there is something you would like to use Realm for at Faith, please contact us and describe your idea. It might be to create a common interest group such as a prayer group, or a volunteer group to serve in the community. We would love to see this amazing application utilized in additional ways at Faith to the glory of Christ.
How do I get Realm support? We have a group you can join.
Once you have an account, you are encouraged to join Faith's Realm Help Group in the app, where you can ask questions about Realm and learn more from the questions asked by others. If you are having technical issues with one of the Realm Connect mobile apps, one simple solution is to bookmark the mobile version of the desktop app on your mobile device. It appears and functions just like the app, but doesn't rely on app updates based on the make and model of your phone.
