Introduction to Realm®
FBC Cleburne is moving to a new kind of church record keeping solution called Realm®. It primarily serves the administrative needs of our staff, but it also offers some exciting opportunities to support the way you are involved in our church. Not only will this improve work life for our ministry staff, it will make it easier for our church family to connect with each other, keep up with what’s going on, and grow as a connected community of believers.
How to Participate
All members of FBC Cleburne will receive an invitation to join Realm®. Once you have setup your password you can then edit/update your profile information and see the Groups (classes) you are currently a part of. You can edit your profile and upload a photo so we can have an accurate online directory of members. We encourage everyone to download the "Connect - Our Church Community" app from Realm®. The app will give you great tools to use on your phone or tablet.

Stay connected to your church wherever you go by downloading the free "Connect - Our Church Community" app for iPhone and Android devices.

Groups and classes are an important part of our church, and now you can connect with the people in them throughout the week. You can keep track of upcoming meetings, who’s bringing what, and what’s going on in each other’s lives.

Starting early 2018 you will be able to review your giving history or make new donations online or on your mobile phone. Simply sign in to look over your year-to-date giving, print a contribution statement, or make a new one-time or recurring donation. It’s always available and kept secure in an easy-to-use online environment.
