This year, Hennepin Avenue UMC is rolling out our new database, Realm. Realm has an app called “Connect-Our Church Community,” which allows for us to communicate more efficiently, track church data better, and give electronically online. Realm can also be accessed online through the website.
To set up your account on your computer,go to https://onrealm.org/HennepinAvenueU. Use the email address and password you have given to the church, and then follow the prompts to set up your account. If you can't remember your password, click on "Forgot your password?" and follow the prompts.
To download the app to your phone, go to the App Store and find the app,
“Connect – Our Church Community." With that, you can log into your new Realm account and manage your church data and the ministries you are engaged in. As we roll Realm out this year, you can register for events, manage your giving, and view church communications.
