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 we grow as faithful stewards, rather than giving token amounts of our incomes, we become regular, systematic, proportionate givers of what we receive. Because the Lord gave us 100 percent of himself, the least we ought to do as Christians is give back to him a portion of what he first has given to us. Through faith, we begin to understand that our giving could more aptly be called “returning” because we are giving back or “returning” to God what he has already given to us. Paul wrote, “What do you have that you did not receive?” (1 Corinthians 4:7). Because God has first given to us, we can give.
