Here are a couple of things before you begin to create your account…

– Be sure you have completed the Realm Invitation Request Form.

– We strongly recommend that you use an up-to-date web browser like Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari to access Realm from your desktop or laptop. Use of Internet Explorer will cause issues to occur.

1. Receive your Realm invite in your email inbox.

– If you do not see this email, please check your junk or SPAM folders. If you have already completed the invite request form, but cannot locate your email invitation in your inbox, please call the church office at 822-1360

2. Create a secure password. This will be the password you use to access your Realm account.

– Create your own password and retype it in the Confirm Password box.

3. Verify your account.
