---Realm

 
As a church, we use Realm to manage the “information of the church”, which includes giving, attendance, personal information, communication and history.  The cloud-based nature of Realm allows us to now give the individual congregation members the opportunity to access, edit and interact with the information.  As we get more familiar with Realm as a church and individually, we will continue to increase the ways we use it to better connect with each other.  The buttons below will take you to various tutorials to help you set up your Realm account and the accompanying app, should you need the help.
