By now, you should have received an email to  JOIN YOUR CHURCH FAMILY as part of our Realm Information System.  Please follow the directions in that email carefully to create your login information. (If you have not received this email, please contact office@wuuc.org)

What is REALM?

REALM is a cloud-based tool that is used to simplify and streamline processes at WUUC.  We seek to reduce the time and effort that is required of our staff and volunteers that is devoted to mundane, repetitive details, so that we are all freed to pursue our ministry.  Realm facilitates communications in many areas of church life, as well as providing a secure environment for members’ and pledging friends’ access to their own contact and personal information at WUUC.  

What does REALM provide for me as Member or Pledging Friend of WUUC?

As a Member or Friend of WUUC, REALM can provide several things:

  • The ability for you to edit all your contact and family information directly, upload personal pictures so that others can identify you, and the ability to control who at WUUC has access to that information.  
  • An online directory of everyone at WUUC (and their permitted contact information)
  • Visibility of all events occurring at WUUC.
  • The ability to indicate interest in a new group by direct email to its leaders.
  • And more!

Why is Realm available only to those who are Members or Pledging Friends of WUUC?

Our database contains information that we hold close to the heart of WUUC — contact and personal information about our families.  Our policy is to restrict access to Realm to those who make a commitment to WUUC to respect the privacy of this information.  WUUC Membership is that commitment.  Pledging is a measurable sign of commitment from those unable to become members at this time.  

If you are not a WUUC member and/or cannot pledge at this time, but believe you should have access to Realm’s information, please contact our Engagement Coordinator for special review.  

If at any point during creation of your login information it appears that you must re-enter your name, please close your browser and start again from the login invitation email (“JOIN YOUR CHURCH FAMILY” email).

After logging into Realm, How do I:

edit my contact and personal information?

  1. Ensure that you are on your own information page by clicking Community on the left side of the page, then click My Profile.  You will see your contact and personal information, and members of your household listed on the right.  
  2. Hover your cursor to the right of Contact Information and a blue pen icon will show up.  
    1. Click on that icon and you will be in edit mode for that section.  Please be sure your address and other contact information are accurate.  Edit or put in additional data as you want. Please upload only pictures and email addresses of adults in your family.
    2. Set your privacy settings to your preference.  To the right of the box containing your contact information, you will see the setting.  Click on it.  You can choose to make information available to Everyone, Leaders+Staff+your Group Members, Staff+ Leaders, or just Staff.  
    3. SAVE when you are finished.
  3. Change to Personal Information by clicking the tab at the top of the page.  
  4. Hover your cursor to the right of “Personal Information” and a blue pen icon will show up.
    1. Click on that icon and you will be in edit mode for that section.  
      1. When adding “Family Position”, please don’t choose “spouse” for both partners — Realm wants us to use “husband” and “wife” or “Head” and “spouse” (not very UU!!)
      2. We are asking that everyone add their birthdate — having everyone’s age will allow WUUC to build age-appropriate programs.  If you are uncomfortable with that, please add a minimum of the correct YEAR (as in 01/01/1955).   
      3. Any other information added under personal information will be appreciated.
    2. Set your privacy settings to your preference.  To the right of the box containing your contact information, you will see the setting.  Click on it.  You can choose to make information available to Everyone, Leaders+Staff+your Group Members, Staff+ Leaders, or just Staff.  
    3. SAVE when you are finished.

use the online directory?

There are two ways to do this:  

  1. Search for anyone by typing their name, or the first few letters of it, into the search box at the top of the page.  Make sure the search is set appropriately to Profiles, Groups, or All.
  2. Click, on the left side of the screen, on Profiles.  This brings up a list of everyone in the church’s information system.  Scroll up or down to find the person you are looking for.  

let a group leader know that I am interested in joining their group?

On the left side of the screen, click on Community, then Groups. A full listing of all the groups at WUUC will appear, along with a short description of the group’s role at WUUC.  Click on the name of any group in which you are interested. Once in the group’s page, you will see a button on the right that says “I’m interested”.  Click on that button to communicate your interest to the group leader.  If you get no response within a week, please contact our Engagement Coordinator at engagement@wuuc.org

And you will be assisted in communicating your interest in becoming involved at WUUC!
