Stay connected to Hilltop wherever you go by downloading the free Realm Connect - For Our Church app for iPhone and Android devices.

What is Realm? Realm is a real ministry tool.
Realm is an online ministry tool designed for real time connection. It helps our church connect with you and you connect with us. If you consider yourself part of this church family, you’ll love it. Realm allows you to manage your personal information and who is allowed to see it, control your giving, and keep in touch with the groups that matter to you. Realm’s Connect App is the way to access and manage all your information and connect with the groups you are involved in as part of our church family.
Why use Realm? Realm strengthens church connections.
Being the church doesn’t just happen at the church. Realm helps us serve you better and leads this church well between Sundays. Everyone can be connected from anywhere at any time, right from our mobile devices using the Connect App. It engages everyone in the life of our church by supporting the healthy relationships essential to our church’s mission. We’ll stay organized, and you’ll stay informed about all of the opportunities for fellowship. When we share life together, we will grow together.
What about my privacy? Realm is safe, private, and secure.
Your privacy is one of our greatest concerns. Realm is only made up of the people in our church, it’s not like a social network that’s open to everyone. Realm keeps your data safe and gives you control over what information you share and who can see it.
What about giving? Realm gives you control over your giving.
Whether you give by check each week, set up an automatic monthly tithe at pledge time, or you manage your giving online with Vanco, in Realm you will see a record of your gifts to our ministry. You will not be required to make any changes unless you currently use Vanco for giving. Vanco will still be receiving ACH, Debit, and Credit payments on our behalf, but it will be routed through a new merchant account integrated with Realm. This will allow you to manage your giving directly through our new membership app. All Vanco users were sent an email about setting up a new account by the end of August. Please call the church office at 507-387-3877 if you have questions about your giving.
How do I start?
All members currently in our database with an email on file, received an email invitation on Sunday, August 30 during our LIVE LAUNCH. If you did not receive an invitation, you can set up a Realm login HERE.
Your Realm login works on your home computer and on your mobile devices, so when you sign into Realm, use the login you created in the first step for the computer or the app. Check to make sure that we have your address and other personal information entered correctly under My Profile. If anything is incorrect, you can change it.
If you have any questions, call the church office at (507) 387-3877, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
