Frequently Asked Questions

What is Realm? Realm is a real ministry tool. 

Realm is an online ministry tool designed for real-time connection. It helps Carroll First United Methodist Church connect with you, and you connect with us. If you consider yourself part of this church family, you’ll love it. 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 leads this church well 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 most pressing concerns. Realm is only made up of the people at Carroll First United Methodist Church, 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. No one except for you and the office personnel has the ability to view your giving information.

How do I start? Follow a few simple steps.

If you are a member of Carroll First United Methodist Church and have an email address on file, you should have received an invitation to sign up and log on to Realm. Follow the invitation instructions, enter your email address, and create a password.

If you haven’t received an email invitation to join Realm or need another sent to you, please contact the church office, at or 712-792-1122.

Your Realm login works on your home computer and your mobile devices, so when you sign into Realm, use the login you created.

Once you have logged on to Realm, check to make sure that your address and other personal information are correct under My Profile. If anything is incorrect, you can change it. You must sign up for a Realm account before you are able to use the Realm Connect app. The sign in information is the same for both the Realm account and the app.
