We invite you to learn more about Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church – a welcoming and friendly community of Christians in Evansville, Indiana. We hope that what you find on our website will encourage you to join us for Sunday worship. We know that we will be enriched by your presence.
Saint Paul’s is an 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. We are focused on being instruments of God’s compassion and reconciliation in the world. The Book of Common Prayer describes that 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
Our worship and Christian education, our ministry in the larger community and our fellowship events all help us to be equipped for the ministry God calls us to as our mission. We draw on the strength and encouragement we together find in God to be able to offer loving and compassionate care for those outside our doors. Inviting new people into our parish family to share our hopes and their dreams is a pleasure and a delight.
You have honored us with your visit to our website. You will find that you are always welcome at Saint Paul’s. If you are looking for a church home we would encourage you to join us for worship.
God’s peace be with you,Fr. Richard

Mission Statement: Seeking God Loving People Changing the World
We want to welcome to all of you today. We are glad you are here for worship and hope that you will join us for our Coffee Hour in Webb Hall following the service.
We welcome Rev. Roger Walker as celebrant while Fr. Richard is on vacation the rest of the month. Lay leaders will have Morning Prayers for the Wednesday service.
We express our thanks to Kevin Ellerbusch for substituting for Margaret Kimberling the next few weeks as organist.
The next Contemporary Praise Service is Saturday, July 26th at 5:00 p.m.
Generous ReflectionsGod surrounds us with people. Some are easy to love and care for, while others are difficult to be around. Jesus said, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you” (John 15:12). Jesus tells us that we cannot pick and choose whom we want to befriend and love. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we share God’s love with any and all whom God puts in our path. Our awareness that God loves us will compel us to go out and love others.
