What is Realm?
Realm is our King Avenue connection tool. Realm gives you an opportunity to receive targeted communication in areas that pertain to you, interact with members in your small group or class, access a membership directory, and check your giving.
 
  • Efficiency - Realm is a single, comprehensive database for pastors and ministry leaders. No more parallel, incomplete systems and lists! 
  • Targeted Messaging - You receive the "good of the order" items and targeted announcements for ministries and groups that pertain to you.
  • Online Photo Directory - Look up phone numbers, addresses, and see a picture of fellow congregants.
  • Giving - Manage your pledge, give electronically, and access your giving statement.
  • Events - Register for upcoming events at the church.

How do I sign up?
You may be getting general emails from the church, but do not yet have an account in Realm to make use of the additional features. To request an invitation, click on the realm button above or click on THIS LINK and complete a 3-question form. This will notify Pastor Colleen that you want to request an invitation to Realm. It may take a week or so to receive your invitation.

Once you get your Realm Invitation...

You will receive a Realm invitation in your email. Click on the link in your invitation (either on a computer or a smart phone), follow the directions, and you're on! CLICK HERE for a video on how to navigate the REALM setup on a computer.

FAQs
  • If I accept my realm invitation on my computer, do I have to also accept it on the mobile app? No. Once your account is set up, you can access from either place. You use your email address and the password that was used to set up the account.
  • Is there an app for my phone? Yes, but make sure your set up your account on a computer first. 
  • I'm getting a lot of emails. How can I control this? You have complete control over what kinds of notifications you receive, and where you receive them. You can customize your notification settings (mobile phone notifications and email) with settings in your account. 
  • Can everyone see my address, phone number, and email? You have complete control of what is published to the directory. 
  • Why is it asking for my birth date? Sometimes there are two people with the same name! The birth date ensures that those records are kept separate.
  • What if I'm not "in the system?" Those without a login will still receive targeted emails about the church's happenings. Without a login, congregants won't be able to access their giving records nor congregant directory. Only those with Realm accounts will be able to interact with other members in small group areas.
  • Is Realm replacing systems we already have? The King Avenue website will still contain an up-to-date calendar and annoucements as it always has. It will also will serve as our "public face" for those searching for a church home. Our main Facebook Page will remain, but the individual ministry groups will be moved into Realm.
  • Can I post in Realm, or is only one-way communication? Realm will have a combination of one-way and two-way communication. The whole group area will be one-way communication, but many of the smaller groups will allow members of the group to interact with each other. 
  • How do I delete outdated items? Realm is a news stream. That means that everything stays in the stream, but the new items are always at the top. Unlike email, you don't need to manage this news stream.
