Realm is an online ministry tool designed for real time connection. It helps our church connect with you and you connect with us. If you consider yourself part of this church family, you’ll love it. Realm allows you to manage your personal information and who is allowed to see it, control your giving, and keep in touch with the groups that matter to you.
Access to Realm Connect is by invite only and users must be approved by our Trinity Administrator.
WHY USE REALM CONNECT?
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 Connect is safe, private, and secure. Your privacy is one of our greatest concerns. Realm Connect is only made up of the people in our church, it’s not like a social network that’s open to everyone. Realm Connect keeps your data safe and gives you control over what information you share and who can see it.
WHAT ABOUT GIVING?
Realm Connect gives you control over your giving. Giving should be easy, and Realm Connect 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 Connect automatically records all electronic gifts and adds them to your giving record making it easy for you to give.
HOW DO I GET CONNECTED to REALM CONNECT?
- Step 1: If you have not already received an email invitation to join Trinity Hudson Realm, you may submit a request by filling out the online request form.
- Step 2: When you receive the email invitation, click on the activation link and begin setting up your account. Explore your Connect Portal and check to make sure that your address and other personal information are entered correctly under My Profile. Don’t forget to add your picture so fellow TLC Members can recognize you! If anything is incorrect, you have the ability to change it.
- Step 3: If you have a smart phone or tablet, download and install the Realm Connect Apple app from the Apple Store or the Andriod app from Google Play. Your Realm login works on your home computer and on your mobile devices, so when you sign into Realm, use the login and password you created in step 2. To login via computer go to www.onrealm.org to login.
THINGS TO REMEMBER!
You can change your privacy settings (through Manage Privacy) so that other Trinity Lutheran Church Realm users can see your basic contact information if desired or you can leave it with just staff. Sharing basic information allows you to be included in the online directory, which is accessible only to approved TLC Realm users.
