Share this information with someone in your church.
Church doesn't always happen at church.
Get the best mobile app to connect your entire church and create community.
Connect like never before.
Messages makes it easy for you to get in touch with people in your church. You can quickly communicate with members of a group or start conversations with one person or multiple people – just by searching for them by name. When you send a message, people will be notified by the app and can respond right away.
Share life together.
Life happens between Sundays. The newsfeed contains a personalized feed of posts, photos, and events from the groups you’re in. People in your church will see messages from their group leaders and other group members. They can respond with comments or show their support by tapping on the heart. People can share something with their group by posting a message, uploading a photo, or inviting people to an event.
Keep people in the loop.
Communicate what’s happening across your church—anytime. People can browse through the app to read churchwide posts, check out upcoming church events, and more. They can double-check their group meeting schedule or find another opportunity to participate in a new church event. Whatever’s going on, it’s all right there in the palm of their hand.
Look people up.
Good news! Everyone can recycle their outdated directory now. The next time you need to look someone up, you can pull out your phone and search for them in the Realm® Connect app. You can also browse through the list of your entire church and look up someone’s family members. And similar rules apply from your printed directory—people can opt out of being listed if that’s their preference or choose what information is available for others to see. It’s a great way to put names to faces and learn more about the people in your church.
Encourage consistent personal giving.
Give people the tools they need to make their giving more consistent. Anyone who has given can open the app to review their total giving year-to-date or check if a recent gift has been processed. People can also set up recurring gifts or make progress toward any pledge goals. It’s a new way for your church family to manage their giving from the convenience of their mobile phone.
Capture RSVPs to events.
Know who will be there (and what they’ll bring). Open up the app to get details about an upcoming event and see who has RSVP-ed. As part of their response, they can note any number of guests or items they have signed up to bring. People can also register for events that require payment, such as a youth camp or adult retreat. Your church family can see who else is coming and post comments about the event.
Allow self-maintained profiles.
Can we get an “Amen?” Yay, no more bottlenecks! Give people the ability to keep their own family information and photos current. It’s super simple and a great way to start people off using the app. (It also means you don’t have to struggle to read someone’s handwriting on those contact cards.) People can set their own preferences about who else—besides staff—can see their information. They can make contact information visible to anyone in the church or restrict it to people in their groups, their group leaders, or just the church staff.
Connect with those who need it most. Realm’s mobile app makes it possible to go one step beyond looking information up. When you find the person you want to contact, you can simply tap on his or her contact information to initiate contact immediately, whether that’s a phone call, a text, or an email. It’s super convenient, and you don’t have to try to memorize phone numbers and email addresses.
Stay connected to each other and to the ministry of your church.
Deepen relationships, celebrate milestones, boost giving, and participate in the work of the Lord. Download the “Connect – Our Church Community” app for iOS or Android devices. With Realm, it’s freely available to anyone in your church.
