St. James Episcopal Church follows the guidelines of The Episcopal Church in safeguarding God's children. There are always at least two adults administrating/monitoring email or text conversations. Youth photos are never posted live, and youth, if identified at all, are only identified by first names (excepting specifically approved bios/stories, e.g., graduation profiles) in parish publications. Youth are not identified and should not be tagged in social media posts. If the youth tags themselves, the tag will be removed. Adults will not submit social media friend requests with youth.
