Realm brings our church community online, so that we can stay in contact throughout the week. You can manage your personal and contact information, donate, see your giving history, and connect easily with others in the congregation—all from a computer or mobile device. A private environment only for our church, Realm requires each user to log in with an email address and a password.
Step 1: Activate your Profile
- Go to www.onrealm.org.
- On the SIGN-IN screen, input your email address.

Step 2: Log in to Realm
After you have activated your profile, you can log into Realm from this page. Click the Realm login button and enter your email address and the password you created.
Step 3: Check Your Contact Information and Privacy Settings
After you have 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.” 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. Your information will be visible in the directory by selecting “Everyone in our church” &, if an option, “Opt in to Online Directory.” If you prefer to keep certain information private, you can choose one of the other options.
To comply with our Child/Youth Protection Policy, privacy settings for children and youth under 18 are set to “Only the Church Staff.” Parents, please do not change these settings for your children.
Step 4: Upload a Photo of Yourself
Connecting a name with a face helps us get to know each other. Please add a headshot that shows your face clearly. The minimum photo dimension is 172 pixels per square inch x 172 pixels per square inch (Most photos have larger dimensions than this minimum). To upload a photo from your computer, click on the circle containing your initials.
To include a family photo and appear in the directory, email Jan Copeland ([email protected]) with the digital photo attached. Jan will upload this to be your Family picture, and it will appear in the directory.
