Online Giving and More ...
Realm, online/text giving and more …
As we begin 2017, I want to let you know about an exciting enhancement to Covenant’s congregational resources. So, you want to have access to an up-to-date church directory or give online or by text or review your church giving history whenever you want. Through “Realm” you are now able to accomplish these tasks and more.
“Realm” is a secure cloud-based church management system Covenant’s staff has used for several years to manage member and visitor data and donor giving records. We want to expand the use of Realm congregation-wide by encouraging you to set up individual secure accounts to access your personal data, the church directory, your personal giving records and history and to utilize the online giving option (explained below).
How do I set up an account? There are two ways to set up an account. First, our church office will be sending out invitations to set up an account to everyone in our database. Look for an email invitation from Realm and just follow the instructions provided. Second, you can register for a new account by clicking here. All you need to provide is a username (your email address) and a password.
Once you have an account you can ...
- Access your profile
- Access the church directory
- Access your giving records and history
- Give online
- And more …
Go to Realm’s website to learn more about this powerful tool: Click Here.
I hope you will set up an account with Realm and begin benefiting from our church information management system.
Online giving option is here! Covenant is set up for online giving for those who wish to take advantage of this way to give. You can give online directly from your Realm account or by Clicking the “Give” button on our website. Click here for the website. You may make a one-time gift or set up recurring giving. For those who choose to utilize online giving at Covenant, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Payment Processor. Credit Card / Debit Card processing is through VANCO, a preferred payment processor. None of your Credit Card / Debit Card information will be stored at or available to Covenant. Your information will be secure.
- Funds. Initially, you will be able to give to the General Fund, Missions Fund, Deacon’s Fund, and the Building Fund. We hope to expand the giving options in the future.
Text to give option. An additional giving option at Covenant is “text to give.” To give by text
