When we give, we’re fueling our mission of building lives that honour God through the people and resources of FAC. It’s also a way to say “thank you” to God for all He’s given to us. The Bible teaches tithing as a way of putting God first by giving Him the first 10% of all we have. Try it, and see what happens!
Our giving platform is Realm.

“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. ‘For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.’ And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.”
– 2 Corinthians 9:7-8

How do I change or cancel my automatic giving?

How can I give using my Realm account?
Using your Realm account to give online has benefits. You can set up your own recurring payments, give to multiple funds in a single transaction, and keep track of your total year-to-date giving. You can access giving through Realm either by clicking on giving in the main menu above, or through the Realm Connect app.
How is my information protected?
Realm’s main purpose is community engagement through the use of groups. It is not an online directory where people can see your personal information. As per the Alberta Protection of Privacy Act for non-profits, we do not provide personal information of our congregants or visitors.
By default, your name, address, phone number and other contact information can only be seen by staff members, leaders, or members of groups you are in. Other members will only see your name and photo. In order for other members to see your information, you must adjust your privacy settings and opt into the directory.
You, as a member of Realm at First Alliance Church, can change your privacy settings to give out as much or as little of your personal information as you desire to the groups you are a part of. And don’t forget to use a good, secure, randomized password.
