new online directory for prince of peace
On Thursday, February 7, 2019, POP members received an electronic invitation to our new online directory, “Realm”. Over the past months, we have updated the administrative tools our staff uses to run the daily operations of the church through Realm. With these new tools, individuals now will also have new ways to view the Prince of Peace online directory, connect with others in the POP community, sign up for events, and view their giving and pledging either on a computer or on a mobile device.
We invite everyone to participate in Realm, however, individuals can choose how much they want to use Realm as a part of their experience with the POP community. Want to learn more? Need help? We will have people available the weekend of February 16/17 and 23/24 to help provide answers to questions and hands on help to those interested.
What is Realm? Realm is a real ministry tool.
Realm is an online ministry tool designed for real time connection. It helps our church connect with you and you connect with us. Realm allows 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.
Why use Realm? Realm strengthens church connections.
Being the church doesn’t just happen at the church. Realm helps us serve you better and helps the POP staff function more efficiently and effectively between Sundays. Everyone can be connected from anywhere at any time, right from our mobile devices. It engages everyone in the life of our church by supporting the healthy relationships essential to our church’s mission. We’ll stay organized, and you’ll stay informed about all of the opportunities for fellowship. When we share life together, we will grow together.
What about my privacy? Realm is safe, private, and secure.
Your privacy is one of our greatest concerns. Realm is only made up of the people of Prince of Peace, it’s not like a social network that’s open to everyone. Realm keeps your data safe and gives you control over what information you share and who can see it.
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, and make changes at any time. Realm automatically records all electronic gifts and adds them to your giving record making it easy for you to give, and easy for our bookkeeper to track.
How do I start? Follow a few simple steps.
If you haven’t received an email invitation to join Realm yet:
Call the church office at (513) 683-4244 or email email@example.com to request an email invitation. You do not need to be a POP member to be part of Realm.
Your Realm login works on your home computer and on your mobile devices, so when you sign into Realm, use the login you created in step 1 for the computer or the app.
*Check to make sure that we have your address and other personal information entered correctly under My Profile. If anything is incorrect, you can change it.
Do I need to use Realm? Realm is not required, but does provide additional ways to communicate.
You will still continue to receive electronic information from Prince of Peace via email. However, a Realm login enables you to update your personal information, choose your privacy settings in our directory, view your giving, give online, sign up for events, register for events, and communicate with groups of which you are a part.
We are excited about this new communication tool and look forward to helping everyone connect through Realm!
