First Pres Wilmette’s New Online Directory
Realm is a secure online tool for members and constituents of First Pres. It’s similar to Facebook but only for our church community. Realm has many features that we will begin to use as more of us create our online accounts to manage individual and family profile information.
Phase 1 – begins January 25, 2023:
- Wednesday – January 25th: Email invitation links will be sent to all Church members and regular participants through Realm to the primary email we have on record. (If we do not have your email or you do not receive an invitation, email us to request an invitation at email@example.com )
- You will be asked to create your Realm account with username and password, which will allow you to access your profile/contact information and profile/contact information for your family unit. (Username will be your email; create and make note of your individual password which must contain at least eight characters.)
- Each Realm account requires a unique email address. If you share an email address with another adult, you will be able to update information for them and everyone in your family unit. If they would like their own account, they will need to send a request from a different email to the church office.
- Parents may request an invite link for children who are 13 years or older.
- Review and update your contact and profile information. Note names, addresses, phone numbers, birthdates, and relationship connections to others in your household/family unit.
- Please upload a picture. Add one of you and photos of your family members.
- After verifying your information in your new Realm account, we welcome you to download the Realm Connect App for your mobile device (see more details in the FAQ linked at the end of this page.)
- If you give to the Church online, please do not change those settings in Phase 1. Giving through Realm will come at a later phase. At this time you do have the ability to view your church giving history through your Realm account.
Later phases of our Realm roll-out will help the church use the group functions for communication, promoting scheduled church meetings and events, and online giving.
