*Privacy Settings:

  1. You can choose your privacy settings. On your 'NEWS' page, click on the down arrow next to your name in the right hand corner. Choose "Manage Privacy" from the drop down menu. We suggest that you select one of the top two privacy settings to ensure that you get the most out of the Realm Connection Tool (see example below):
    Realm Privace
  2. Note: Setting your "Privacy" to either "Staff" or Staff & Leaders" will opt you out of the Church directory.
