In 2018 Saint James implemented a preventative maintenance program. Kim Kramer began this endeavor from scratch and we now have a functioning system in place. Map Con software was selected which gives us the ability to archive repairs, replacement dates of components, serial numbers, vendor identification, costs, and much more. Kim has separated the church into specific sections for clarity and simplicity. Regular inspections and maintenance are now scheduled for the entire building and property. Rather than reacting to a problem after the fact, Map Con affords us the ability to identify and often minimize adverse issues in their infancy thus saving money and prolonging the service life of a specific component.
St. James parishioners should be aware on two occasions in November and one in December (12/18/19) several members of the church received fraudlent email messages, the first purportedly from our former rector, Joel Hafer, and the second and third purportedly from our interim rector, The Rev. Dr. Carol Jablonski. These messages convey a friendly greeting and then ask the recipient to respond by return email, saying "I need to ask you a favor" and/or to purchase iTunes cards and to send them to a fake gmail address using their smart phones. All of these "phishing" emails are SCAMS. None of them originated from Joel or Carol. Please do not open them or respond to them. The following guidelines (provided by Amy Williford) will help you identify and deal with email phishing attempts. Please take a moment to read them carefully. Thank you.
