Diverse in age and religious background, we have gathered together as the body of Christ here in Cache Valley since 1878. We are blessed to say:

All are WELCOME!

We believe that this is more than a slogan.

We’re far from perfect, but we are forgiven and growing on the inside and out! God welcomes us, so our mission is to joyfully welcome each and every person who comes to seek God’s presence.

Worship & Christian Education

In Worship we discover God’s amazing grace, steadfast love, and unconquerable hope. Through Scripture and the Word preached, sincere prayer, inspired music, and renewing fellowship, we strive to provide worship that is faithful, fresh, relevant, uplifting, challenging, and inclusive.

In our educational ministry, we seek to nurture a deeper understanding of our world, and of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ in it.

Mission

With a loving touch, a word of justice and mercy, a vision of hope and peace, and a generous spirit, we seek to follow Christ’s example and be God’s hands in the world.

Youth & Children’s Ministry

Youth are not only the future of the church and world. At First Presbyterian, they are a vital part of our present. Retreats, mission trips, activities of all kinds, ecumenical involvement, and dedicated leadership nurture an environment of growth, love, trust, fun, and faith. As our youth know, Jesus rocks!

Christian churches have traditionally been communities where children are loved, celebrated, and nurtured. First Presbyterian has been, and seeks to continue to be, such a place.

Fun and Fellowship

Church life is not limited to one hour on Sunday. As a community, we enjoy each others company. The joy of the Lord, discovered in relationships with each other, is something we relish. We are brothers and sisters in Christ.

We are friends, too.

We invite you to join us for Contemporary & Traditional Worship, Mission, Christian Education, Bible Study, Fellowship and a sense of community.

  • Vision 2023.  What’s the latest?

    While working on a vision for our congregation for the next five years, your elders and deacons proposed that we update our Mission Statement.  If we are going to create a vision for the next five years it is important that we have a Mission Statement that our vision supports.

    Do you ever ask yourself questions such as Who Am I?  or Why Am I Here?

    Those are also important questions for congregations to ask.  Who are we?  Why are we here?  What is our purpose?  Answering that question for a congregation involves creating a Mission Statement.

    I’ve recently been reading several books about church leadership and strategic planning.  It’s reported that only 20% of churches have a strategic plan for their ministry.  I would like us to be part of that 20%.  That happens by asking ourselves important questions such as who are we as followers of Jesus?  Who are we called to be as his followers?  What are we called to do as his followers in Cache Valley in the 21st century?  And why are those things we are called to do important to us?  These questions get answered in our Mission Statement and in our Vision for the congregation.

    Here is our proposed Mission Statement:

    Through God’s grace, to be an inclusive community of faith and compassion, empowering one another to become delightfully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

    Mission statements are intended to be short and concise, while guiding the direction of our congregation, shaping our ministry, inspiring unity, focusing our strategy, and guiding decision making.

    We will be continuing with our visioning process for the next few months.  This vision for the congregation will be a longer document that includes much more detail and supports our (proposed) Mission Statement.  As is always the case, if you have thoughts about what your vision might be for our congregation, please chat with me about them.  I am always happy to talk about such things and willing to listen to any ideas you have.  Several of you did submit ideas to me in the last month (and those were shared with our deacons and elders, helping shape our work when we met on Saturday, April 14).  Thank you for those contributions.

    New Members Gatherings

    Our New Members Classes have been scheduled!  Any of you who aren’t officially members of First Presbyterian Church are welcome to attend.  During these classes you will have opportunities to gather together and ask questions about what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ, what it means to be a member of this congregation, and what it means to be Presbyterian (in addition to how to spell Presbyterian…).  Unfortunately, the Sundays in May are booked up (I am traveling on two of them, once for my grandmother’s memorial service; other Sundays are Mother’s Day and Memorial Day weekend).  We’re going to try to do our New Members gatherings on Tuesday nights, May 8th, 15th, and 22nd.  We will meet at member’s houses on two occasions, and at my house on the third occasion.  I have several of you on my list and will be contacting you via email, but please chat with me if you are interested and you haven’t heard from me.

    May Travels

    The month of May is going to be a busy one for me.  As I’ve indicated I will be away for two weekends this month (which is highly unusual for me).  I have been invited to preach a stewardship sermon at my home church in Arvada, Colorado, which is the first trip.  The second trip will be to Longmeadow, Massachusetts, for the memorial service for my grandmother Ruth Gould, who recently passed away at the age of one hundred and two.  That service is on a Saturday, and after looking into flights I will not be able to return to Logan by Sunday morning.  You will be in good hands, however, as Pastor Meg will be preaching on those two Sundays that I am away.

    May is always an exciting time of year; the end of the school year, what seems like the transition from spring to summer, the arrival of Summer Citizens, and many other things.  I look forward to seeing you in worship and at other activities!

    May the grace and peace of Jesus Christ be with you all,

    Pastor Derek
