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.

  • Happy New Year!

    Do you ever take time in your life to reflect on the close of a year and the beginning of a new one?  I think it’s a good practice, and I think it’s a particularly good practice for a congregation.  We’ll have a chance to do this together at our annual congregational meeting on January 28th, at 5 p.m. when we gather in Bruner Hall.

    The year 2017 was a one for our congregation.  We finished the year with a surplus budget, and worship attendance was up a few percentage points from the previous year.  While those two things are wonderful, and I am thankful for them, I hope we are all aware that those aren’t the kind of things that truly define a good year for a church.  So, what does define a good year for a church?  As followers of Jesus, I think that we would define a good year, not by accomplishments, but by our relationships with each other and with our community.

    We had several new members join our congregation in the early part of the year.  Our long-standing relationship with the community through Loaves & Fishes continued to be successful.  Summer Citizens again visited Logan and became part of our congregation for a wonderful few months.  This included a beautiful outdoor worship service in Merlin Olsen Park.  Vacation Bible School was once again a tremendous success.  Our High School Youth Group ventured on a mission trip to Albuquerque, NM with other Presbyterian churches from around Utah.  And of course, we worshipped together and met for Sunday School throughout the year, preaching and teaching and proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ.

    I’m anticipating even more wonderful things for 2018.  We have an exciting weekend planned for January 28th, when our Associate Pastor Nominating Committee (APNC) brings a candidate to us for congregational approval.  We have journeyed for some time now without an Associate Pastor.  That has meant more work for our members (and for myself!), especially those who have been helping with youth ministry.  In particular, thank you to Sunday School teachers Jean Stewart, Allison Willoughby, Terry Brennand, Mary-Ann Muffoletto, Tina Purintun, and Nate Wiley-Drake.  Their ministry with our children and youth is a critical part of our purpose.

    The year 2018 will also provide an opportunity for us to do some long-term visioning for our congregation.  In doing this we’ll need to look at who we are, and who we wish to be in the future.  What long-term visions do we have for ourselves and our congregation?  What do we envision for our music programs?  For youth ministry?  For mission and outreach to our local community and the global community?

    Two other visioning ideas might be short or long-term plans for new stained-glass windows, and for solar panels on our church roof (above Bruner Hall).  Solar panels would be another way for us to reduce our carbon footprint while in the long term, saving us money on the electricity we use.  Replacement stained-glass windows would help with energy efficiency by making the sanctuary easier to heat in the winter (or cool in the summer).  This kind of project would also make the church more beautiful from the outside. Presently, our stained-glass windows are mostly covered by plexiglass that has yellowed over the decades.

    I hope that you are as excited about 2018 as I am.

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

    Pastor Derek
