At the end of February, our church’s social media platform The City is going away! This is not by our design, but instead is a decision made by the company which created The City. It’s going to be replaced by a new, better platform called Realm. The church is migrating our database to Realm beginning February 1, 2019. It will take approximately 10 business days to complete. During that period, we ask that you please refrain from using The City.
All of our City groups and individual profiles will be migrated. Group posts and message content on The City will not be migrated, so if you have important conversations on the City, make sure you archive them before January 31. If you need assistance with how to do this, please see Hilary or Marissa.
In mid February, once the migration is finished, all existing users of The City will receive an email invitation to Realm. All you need to do is open the invitation, follow the link to create a new password, and then all of your profile and group information from the City will have been migrated over.
We are very excited about this new and significantly improved way for our church family to connect, communicate more efficiently, and share in our life together. Please watch this video introduction to Realm, to learn more!
