School Year Registration

This 2-step process will take no more than 10 minutes of your time, and ensures that your records are up to date and we have health information and important agreements for your student.
If your student attended a 2017 Mission Trip, you are all set and registered!

Step 1:  Log-In to Realm:  
This will allow you to first take a look at your family's profile in our new database.  You can update your information and preferences.  This ensures your Peace records are up to date.  If you have not received this email invitation,  please contact Pat Rocca at and ask for a Realm invitation. 

Step 2:  Registering Your Children for School Year Ministry: 
Once you have completed Step 1, we need an electronic Registration for all Children ages 0-18 for the school year.  This registration form includes health information and important permission agreements.
Children's Ministry Link

This is the first page of Registration.
Important:  ENTER YOUR CHILD'S NAME in the "Add a Registrant" Field:

From there, you can also check any additional children.  You will need to register each child separately, but they will appear together on the next page of entering information.
