We Use Realm to Connect

Realm is a tool to help us better communicate with each other, pray for posted needs, become more organized, enable more volunteer leaders to be successful with their ministries and groups, connect with new people, and help us to grow. Realm also allows people to easily manage their online giving and access their giving records whenever they want. Go to https://onrealm.org/rockwell/ to set up a Realm login and to download the iOS or Android mobile app. 

After using the Breeze Church Management program for the last five months the church leadership decided we needed a tool that better helped us better empower volunteers. We have had all the records transferred over from the Breeze to Realm. We are currently ten days behind on giving records and will take care of that this week.

As we are getting started using Realm we do not have some of the features setup yet like volunteer management, find a group, a shared church directory or event sign ups. The prayer group, group leader tools and online giving are ready to go. We are using a google calendar for our online calendar. You can help us by updating your contact info, adding individual and family photos, setting your communication preferences and changing your online giving from Breeze to Realm. We will be growing into the program together so we appreciate your patience as we transition into this new system.

What is Realm? Realm is a real ministry tool.

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.

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.

Your privacy is one of our greatest concerns. Realm is only made up of the people in your church, it’s not like a social network that’s open to everyone. Realm keeps your data safe and gives you control over what information you share and who can see it.

What about giving? Realm gives you control over your giving.

Giving should be easy, and Realm 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 automatically records all electronic gifts and adds them to your giving record making it easy for you to give, and easy for our bookkeeper to track.

How do I start? Follow a few simple steps.

When giving online, Realm gives you the choice to give an additional 1% for checking/savings account and 3% for credit cards to cover our costs if you want to. When you choose recurring giving you will immediately receive an email receipt after each gift. It is very easy to start, pause and stop your online giving and to see your giving records. ACS Realm gives you control and keeps your account secure. Our Realm giving is taken care of by Vanco Services serving over 45,000 churches and schools for more than 20 years and they have an office next to the Mall of America.
