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

Remember to gather some of your treasures to share at the St. Paul’s Sale on September 12. The committee will meet in the chapel today following the 10:30 service. Tess Grimm is also asking that those wishing to volunteer to help the week prior and during the sale please see her in the chapel to sign up.
Today really is the last day for J2A to selling mums. The deadline was extended so you can still choose from 6 different colors in Webb Hall today for $10 each, or contact Elizabeth Hiett by email. Flowers will be here next Sunday.
Today begins Fall Festival Sign-ups.
Next Sunday will be a big day for St. Paul’s. The Sunday School Kickoff will begin at 9:30. We will also be doing ChurchFest where you can learn more about St. Paul’s ministries and get involved. The choir will begin singing again in the 10:30 service.
The Contemporary Service is two weeks away on Sunday evening, September 14th @ 5:00 PM.
