STAY UP TO DATE WITH EVENTS, GROUPS AND THE ENTIRE ST. JAMES COMMUNITY

Still relatively new to STJ, Realm has already proven to be an invaluable tool for communication and building a stronger community. Not just for church members, it serves the entire St. James Community. Realm serves the administrative needs of our staff and leadership teams and facilitates better and stronger connections.

A Realm profile takes sixty seconds to set up and, among many things, allows you to subscribe to group communications of your choice and connect with other users. All of which serves to grow STJ as a connected community of believers.
