Our church is moving to a new kind of church record keeping solution called Realm®. It primarily serves the administrative needs of our staff, but it also offers some exciting opportunities to support the way you are involved in our church. Not only will this improve work life for our ministry staff, it will make it easier for our church family to connect with each other, keep up with what’s going on, and grow as a connected community of believers.
Ultimately, you determine how much you want to make this part of your experience with our church, but we encourage everyone to participate.
Stay connected to our church wherever you go by downloading the free Realm Connect - Our Church Community app for iPhone and Android devices. Use it to communicate with your groups, RSVP to events, manage your giving, update profile information, and more. It makes it easier for us to connect throughout the week and know what’s happening.
Note: In order to connect with our online church community, you must be a member of Morningside and receive an invitation from the church. Please contact the office for more information on how to become a member of Morningside and receive an invitation to Realm.
Realm can also be accessed via web browser (app not required). To access Realm Connect Online, go to https://onrealm.org/MBCHuntsville/
Using the app!
Training: Morningside conducts training classes for how to use the Realm Connect app on a regular basis (typically after each New Member Orientation class). If you would like information on the next training class, please contact the office. The training material can be downloaded here.
Profile Management: Everyone in our church gets a unique profile. Your profile contains everything you want people in our church to know about you. Your profile also enables you to join a small group, 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your giving, update your contact information, change family details, set notification preferences, or replace that outdated family photo.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:
*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.
Groups 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, who’s bringing what, and what’s going on in each other’s lives.
Giving: Review your giving history or make new donations online or on your mobile phone. Simply sign in to look over your year-to-date giving, check pledge progress, print a contribution statement, or make a new one-time or recurring donation. It’s always available and kept secure in an easy-to-use online environment.
Ways to Give
No matter how you choose to give toward our ministry, you can review all of your giving history online anytime.
*Requires a unique keyword for our church. Text MBCHuntsville and amount to 73256 on your smart phone.
Event Registration: View upcoming church events and register for the ones you'd like to attend. If an event’s registration requires payment, you’ll see its cost, any required deposit amount, acceptable forms of payment, and its no-refund date, if applicable. You can also manage your active registrations and see any outstanding balances
Privacy Information: Your Information is your information.
What People May See
By default, the viewing of your contact and personal information is limited to members of groups you are in, group leaders, and staff members. If you choose to, however, you can make your information visible to the entire church. But if you prefer to be more private, you can customize how people see specific information*.
*If you are a group leader or host an event, certain contact information may be visible regardless of the settings you choose.
**While you can hide the majority of your information from most of your church, you should know that, regardless of your settings, contact data will still be visible to certain members of our church staff.
***The Directory page shows all individuals who have a login, along with individuals without a login who have been opted-in to the directory. Currently, individuals with a login cannot opt out of being listed in the directory.
A family member with a primary position such as "Head" or "Spouse" can change privacy settings for other members of the family and opt family members into the church directory.
Birthdays are required for children (as a means to prohibit access), but it’s up to you if you want to share the birth date with your church family.
