We invite you to learn more about Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church – a welcoming and friendly community of Christians in Evansville, Indiana. Saint Paul’s is a historic parish, formed more than 150 years ago. We are proud of our roots and heritage; we are also excited about who we are now and who we are becoming. The Book of Common Prayer describes (the) mission of the Church in this way: “The mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ… The Church pursues its mission as it prays and worships, proclaims the Gospel, and promotes justice, peace, and love… The Church carries out its mission through the ministry of all its members.” (BCP 1979 p. 855) If you are looking for a church home, we would encourage you to join us for worship.
God’s peace be with you, St. Paul’s Vestry

- As our J2A group plans for our Holy Pilgrimage to Barcelona, Spain this summer, we are constantly reminded of the support we receive from St. Paul’s parishioners. Our group was especially concerned about our fundraising and had begun some discussion of looking at summer 2017 as our travel date. That all changed due to a large donation from an anonymous donor. Due to their generosity we are now able to plan with confidence our pilgrimage this summer. Thank you for your prayers, love and financial support. We are truly blessed by our St. Paul’s family! In Christ, Alex Hardgrave, Anna Watson, Christopher Hiett, Nick Jones, Marge Gianopoulos & Dave Black.

Along with the psalmist, we need to ask, “How can I repay the Lord for all his goodness to me?” (Psalm 116:12) Our response to God’s goodness is determined by how grateful we are. If we are only slightly grateful, we express our thanks in token service and offerings. If we are very grateful, we will “call on the name of the Lord” (Psalm 116:13) and serve him always and give generously. My God grant all of us hearts filled with gratitude for who God is and what he has done for us.
