We are excited to get started with REALM, our new Outlet Online tool! Realm will give you an opportunity to receive targeted communication in areas that pertain to you, interact with others in The Outlet Community, access your Life Group or Community Team, and check your giving.

Realm is a web-based application from ACS Technologies that informs our teams and connects our community. All of our Realm data is safely stored and backed up in the cloud, making it available 24/7 from anywhere using a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Here are the benefits for The Outlet Community utilizing this new software…

  • Efficiency – Realm is a single, comprehensive database for The Outlet Community. Keeps our records and data clean!
  • Targeted Messaging – You receive the urgent items and targeted announcements for ministries and groups that pertain to you.
  • Choose How to Stay Informed – Receive email, go to onrealm.com/theoutletcc on your computer, use notifications on your phone, or check the same information on an app on your phone.
  • Control Privacy – You can set who sees your phone number, address, and email. Nobody outside of the system can see anything.

  • Can everyone see my address, phone number, and email? You have complete control of what is published to the directory. Click here to see how to customize those settings.
  • Why is it asking for my birth date? Sometimes there are two people with the same name! The birth date ensures that those records are kept separate.
  • What if I’m not “in the system?” Those without a login will still receive targeted emails about the church’s happenings. Without a login, congregants won’t be able to access their giving records nor congregant directory. Only those with Realm accounts will be able to interact with other members in Life Group areas.
  • Is Realm replacing systems we already have? The Outlet Community website will still contain up-to-date calendar announcements as it always has. It will also will serve as our “public face” for those searching for a church home. Our main social media pages will remain, but the individual ministry teams will be communicating using Realm.
  • Can I post in Realm, or is only one-way communication? Realm will have a combination of one-way and two-way communication. The whole group area will be one-way communication, but many of the smaller groups will allow members of the group to interact with each other.
  • How do I delete outdated items? Realm is a news stream. That means that everything stays in the stream, but the new items are always at the top. Unlike email, you don’t need to manage this news stream.
