Step 1: Check Your E-Mail and Activate your Profile
Before logging into Realm, you must be invited to join our church network on Realm Connect. After receiving the e-mail, open it, and follow the instructions to create your password. Then watch for a verification e-mail, and follow the instructions to activate your profile. If you haven’t received an invite, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office.
Step 2: Log in to Realm
After you have activated your profile, you can log in to Realm by clicking on the LOGIN button at the top right on Zumbro’s website. Enter your e-mail address and password that you created.
Step 3: Check Your Contact Information and Privacy Settings
After you have logged in, click on the arrow next to your name in the upper right corner of your screen. Select “My Profile” to check that we have your personal information correct. If anything is incorrect, you can change it. Simply click on “Edit Profile” to change your contact information.
To see your privacy settings, click on “Manage Privacy.” We highly suggest that anyone over the age of 18 choose “Everyone in our church.” This makes it so that other Cave Spring UMC users can see your basic contact information (just as they have through printed church directories in the past!)
Parents: As part of our policy, privacy settings for profiles of children under 18 are set to “Only the Church Staff” and we suggest that this not be changed.
Step 4: Change Your E-Mail Settings
Click on the arrow next to your name in the upper right corner of your profile screen. Select “E-Mail Settings.” Select either “New posts only” or “All posts and replies.”
Step 5: Upload a Photo of Yourself
As our church continues to grow, connecting a name with a face helps everyone to get to know each other. Please add a headshot that shows your face clearly. To upload a photo from your computer, click on the circle containing your initials.
Step 6: Explore Realm!
Click on the selections in the left column of the screen to see news, your personal giving history, ministry and small groups that you belong to or may want to join, the church directory, and more! As we grow on Realm, more information and events will be added for you to explore.
Step 7: If You Use a Smartphone or Tablet, Get the Realm App
