Realm - Our Church App, Giving, Communication, and Ministry Tool

What is Realm? 

We introduced our congregation to Realm in September 2021. Read more about Realm below and also in our more detailed information packet by clicking here.

Realm is our web-based accounting, database and ministry tool from ACS Technologies that informs our staff and connects our congregation. Realm allows us to serve you better, and for 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. All of our data is safely stored and backed up in the cloud, making it available 24/7 from anywhere using a desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. 

 

How does Realm help you?

Realm helps you be connected to FBCSP in ways that make sense to you. Once you log in, you can:

  • Update your address, phone, and email (and set privacy settings to determine who can see that information)

  • Add your picture to your profile

  • Share posts and pictures, and plan events, with your groups

  • Find new groups

  • See your giving history

  • Register for church events

  • Access our church directory
     

Getting Started

If you would like to receive an invitation to join Realm by email, contact Bethany in the church office at bsaburro@fbcsp.org

  1. Open the email, select your password.

  2. You will then get a verification email in which you will need to click a link to verify your account.

  3. From here, you can log into Realm as a church member.

  4. To login to Realm, go to https://onrealm.org/fbcsp and click on “Log In”

  5. Put in your email address, the one at which you received the invitation, and input the password you chose.

 
Do we have a church app?

Yes! Many people prefer to use an app instead of logging in through a web browser. Once you’ve logged in for the first time, you can download the app called “Realm Connect” from the app store tied to your mobile device (Apple Store and Google Play). Log into the app with the same email address and password you created through a web browser, and your app will stay connected to your account with the church.

 

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, make event payments, and make changes at any time. Realm automatically reocrds all electronic gifts and adds them to your giving record making it easy for you to give, and easy for our accountant to track. Log into Realm and click the Giving Tab in your profile.
