Realm is the upgraded version of our current ACS directory system and is much more user-friendly!

Realm is for members of St. Paul’s only.

Step 1: Set up your Realm access

To have full access to the St. Paul’s Realm system, you can set up the mobile app for your phone and set up the desktop version for your computer. Instructions for both appear below:

Step 2: Add or Update Your Profile

Everyone in our church will have a unique profile. Your profile contains everything you want people to know about you. Your profile also enables you to RSVP to events, track your giving, update your contact information, change family details, set notification preferences, or replace that outdated family photo. By keeping your information current, you are helping our staff, group leaders, and our church community. Your Profile includes:

  • Contact Information* (e.g. name, address, email, phone)
  • Photo
  • Family Members
  • Personal Information (e.g. marital status, birthday**, etc.)
  • Connected Social Media accounts

*You can decide later what data you want to hide online by setting your privacy preferences.
**Feel free to enter your full birthday. The year and your age will not be displayed on your church directory profile.”

Step 3: Start Engaging More Fully in Groups

Groups, ministries, and classes are an important part of our church, and now you can connect with the people in them throughout the week. You can keep track of upcoming meetings, events, who’s bringing what, and what’s going on in each other’s lives.”

Let’s Connect!

Starting immediately, St. Paul’s will begin using Realm to communicate with your ministries, manage groups and teams, help you RSVP to events, allow you to easily manage your giving, update your personal profile information and privacy settings, and more. Realm will make it easier for all of us to connect throughout the week and know what’s happening. The following features will be available for use as appropriate:

  • News — Keeps everyone up to date with the latest posts, photos, and events for your groups and teams
  • Posts — Post messages to your group and comment on posts by others in your group or team
  • Photos — Capture your moments together and share them with your group or team
  • Events — See event details, submit your RSVP, and sign up to bring something
