Events and Traditions

Community Thanksgiving Dinner

For many years, St. Paul’s has served a traditional Community Thanksgiving Dinner to the community people around St. Paul’s.  Church members and Friends of St. Paul’s join together to prepare a meal of home made turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, and pumpkin and apple pie.


Fall Festival Parking

Several classes and groups from St Paul’s operate our Fall Festival Parking during the annual West Side Nut Club Fall Festival.  Parking on a lighted parking lot at a reasonable fee benefits the community, and proceeds fund various ministries of St. Paul’s.  Our parking lot at West Michigan Street and 12th Avenue offers parking to disabled persons free of charge. 


Pet Blessing at Fall Festival

St. Francis of Assisi loved all creatures.  In honor of St. Francis, St. Paul’s United Church of Christ is pleased to offer this Pet Blessing Dr. Bill Wassner will bless pets on the Saturday morning of the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival Pet Parade.  The parade date is usually the first Saturday following The Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi.   

Your pet is a creature of God.  Celebrate the love you have for your pet by bringing your pet to be blessed.  If your pet does not travel well, or if your pet does not do well around other animals, you may bring a picture of your pet for Dr. Wassner to bless. 


Sausage Supper

Our famous Sausage Supper is held the second Wednesday of every November. In 2019, that date will be November 13th, and serving will take place from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM.  Members and friends come together to cook and serve dinner.  Delicious sausage, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, navy beans, and apple pie are served.  Dine-in and carry-out are available.  Proceeds support various mission projects.


Trunk or Treat

St. Paul’s is one of many churches and civic organizations in Evansville which hold a Trunk or Treat event.  A large selection of clever and creative “treat-givers” set up on the grassy area next to our main parking lot.  A cookout, crafts, and other fun activities are also offered.
