Realm Connect is a ministry platform—a browser-based application for the whole church. That means it isn’t just a database. It is an interactive tool designed to integrate members, ministries, and groups. The member directory will be in Realm. You can update your own profile, keep in touch with others, stay involved in groups, manage pledges and giving, and more.
See the following video for step-by-step instructions for creating your Realm account.

WHY DO I NEED A REALM ACCOUNT?
DIRECTORY: Access our secure member directory anytime. (Realm replaces the previous Shelby WebView directory).
GROUP COMMUNICATIONS: Groups, committees, and others will stay in touch through Realm.
CONTRIBUTIONS: Your complete contributions and pledge information will be available in Realm.
DOES MY PARTNER NEED A SEPARATE LOGIN?
YES. Each member should have their own account so you
are connected with your own groups and events and are able to update your individual profile.
WILL MY PARTNER SEE MY CONTRIBUTIONS INFORMATION?
IT DEPENDS… If you pledge together, both you and your spouse will see the same information. If you pledge separately, contributions information is only visible to the individual.
DO I NEED THE APP?
NO. The Realm app is very convenient, but you can always use Realm on the web.
WHAT ABOUT MY PRIVACY?
Realm is safe, private, and secure. Realm is only made up of people in our church, not a social network open to everyone. Realm keeps your data safe and gives you control over what information you share and who can see it.
HOW WILL THIS HELP THE CONGREGATION?
The member directory will be available anytime and accessible from wherever you are. Group and committee leaders can communicate with team members directly through Realm (either via the browser page on a computer or in the app). No more calling or emailing to get your address changed, and you get to decide what other members can see in the directory. These are just a few of the exciting features of GSL using Realm!
Contact a staff member if you need additional assistance, and we will be glad to help you.
