We are closed July 3 & 4 for Independence Day


St. Luke’s Parish Ministries are commonly grouped into these Commissions: Christian Formation, Heritage and Environment, Fellowship Membership, Outreach, Pastoral Care, Stewardship and Worship. Each Commission watches over these areas of our Parish, providing a multitude of opportunities for service and growth to all parishioners in their unique spiritual gifting and talents. Our Time & Talent survey provides a detailed list of ministries in each category, along with a list of ways in which newcomers and long-time members can offer time and talent to support each.  We invite you to consider giving of your time and talent to St. Luke’s and thus to the Kingdom of God. Consider now how you would like to become more involved in the ministries of St. Luke’s.

Christian Education

The Christian Education Commission oversees the Christian development and formation of all age groups. Within their purview lies Sunday School for Adults and Children, Men’s ministry, Women’s ministry, and Children’s ministry. Among our many resources is the online program “ChurchNext”, which is utilized to create interesting and informative content to the Sunday School classes to promote walking closer with God and understanding our role as Christians in today’s society.

Heritage and Enviroment

Our newly-formed “Heritage and Environment” Commission houses the “Creation Care” Ministry, the “Historical Committee” and and our newly-revived “Native American Ministry”. Keeping track of St. Luke’s Parish’s historical records is a huge task, and many volunteers pitch in to keep it organized. 


Developed by the Presiding Bishop’s office, “Creation Care” is a commitment to practice loving formation, liberating advocacy and life-giving conversation as individuals, congregations, ministries and dioceses. St. Luke’s is answering this call to be caretakers of God’s creation with the formation of our Creation Care team. Concerned for the global climate emergency, drawing on diverse approaches for our diverse contexts, we commit to form and restore loving, liberating, live-giving relationships with all of Creation.


The mission of the Fellowship Commission is to create the time and spaces that bring parishioners together in community. The team organizes weekly fellowship time following services, as well as periodic special events, including potlucks and seasonal church-wide activities. Our Fellowship Commission also care for our Gathering Hall and Parish Hall.


Our membership commission oversees the inclusion of visitors and new members into parish activities and relationships. The Episcopalians are known for precise record-keeping, and this commission watches over that process by tracking down event dates such as baptisms and confirmations for each of our parishioners. A newcomer’s luncheon occurs quarterly wherein all visitors and those interested in becoming members of the Parish are cordially invited, served lunch, and are made aware of the different ministries and their leaders where they are welcome to serve.


Our vision is to serve Christ through serving our neighbors.

The Outreach Commission brings parishioners together to help others, especially those in need of food, water, shelter, clothing, and educational opportunities.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care is all about caring for the Parish, both body and soul. The Pastoral Care Commission houses the Lay Eucharist Ministry, Community of Hope, (whose trained lay chaplains are available to parishioners, as well as people in care facilities in our community), and the Daughters of the King, and provides other events and activities to serve the Parish in their ministries, such as receptions and event support. The St. Luke’s Food Pantry falls under the Pastoral Care’s purview as well, and serves over 100 families per week by providing much needed foodstuffs and fresh vegetables to those who are in need. And our very own Angel Quilters provide blankets to children who are hospitalized to give them some comfort during difficult situations. Service Opportunities abound in this commission.


While always an important part of church life, the Stewardship Commission goes above and beyond to provide opportunities for the parish members to serve their church through financial gifts and donations. We are always looking for the best way to support the ministries, even as far as applying for many State and Federal grant programs. Supporting so many ministries is a daunting task, but our commission gives careful thought to the many ways in which we can give back to God through our treasure, as well as seeking other ways to increase the amount of ministry we can fiscally support.


Our Worship Commission cares for all Sunday servants in the Gathering Hall and Sanctuary, including our outstanding St. Luke’s Choir. Many of our parishioners serve monthly as ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, and Vergers. The music at St. Luke’s is some of the finest in the Quad-Cities area, owing to our talented music director, Dennis Houser and the excellence of the acoustics in the Sanctuary, and often includes extra instruments above and beyond our fine organists. We even have a bell choir! We also regularly sponsor professional groups such as the Arizona Philharmonic and Prescott Pops instrumentalists in solo concerts both private and public, and are home to the Prescott Chorale, also under the direction of Dennis Houser.
