PBC Realm - Let's Connect
What is Realm? Realm is a real ministry tool.
Why use Realm? Realm strengthens church connections.
Being the church doesn’t just happen at the church. Realm helps us serve you better and leads this church well 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 mission. 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.
What about giving? Realm gives you control over your giving.
LET'S GET CONNECTED!
Step 1: Check Your Email and Activate your Profile
If you do not receive an email invitation and know that you have a valid email address on file with the church, please check your spam/junk folder. If the email invitation isn’t there, or if you haven’t given the church an email address, contact the office during business hours.
Step 2: Check Your Contact Information and Privacy Settings
After you have activated your profile and logged in, click on the arrow next to your name in the upper right corner of your profile screen. Select “My Profile” to check the information about you and your privacy settings. Click on “Edit Profile” to change your contact information.
To see your privacy settings, click on “Manage Privacy.” We urge everyone over 18 to choose “Everyone in our church.” This allows other Realm users in the church will be able to see your email and home address, phone number, birthday (month and day, not year), marital status, and the names of members of your household. If you prefer to keep certain information private, you can choose one of the other options.
Parents: Privacy settings of children under 18 are set to “Only the Church Staff” and should not be changed.
Step 3: Change Your Email Settings
Click on the arrow next to your name in the upper right corner of your profile screen. Select “Email Settings.” Select “New posts only” or “All posts and replies.”
Step 4: Upload a Photo of Yourself
In a church as large as ours, connecting a name with a face helps us get to know each other. Please add a headshot that shows your face clearly. To upload a photo from your computer, click on the circle containing your initials.
Step 5: Explore!
Click on the choices in the left column to see news, your giving history, ministry groups that you belong to or may want to join, our church directory, and more!
Step 6: If You Use a Smartphone or Tablet, Get the Realm App
After you have activated your profile, you can use Realm on your smartphone or tablet. To download app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, search for “Connect – Our Church Community” from ACS Technologies.
