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.

  • It’s Summertime!

    Having watched Alice Cooper in the role of Herod a few months ago in the television version of Jesus Christ Superstar, I can’t help but sing along to his song School’s Out for Summer.  It doesn’t hurt that my fiancé is a schoolteacher herself.  I’m one of those people who love all the seasons, and I always get excited when summer rolls around.  Flowers are blooming, my kayak is calling my name, it’s a great time for motorcycle rides, and so many things are happening!

    This is as true for our church as it is for our individual lives.  Summer Citizens have arrived in Logan, and we are so thankful to have them in worship with us.  Vacation Bible School begins on June 4.  Our High Schoolers will soon be leaving for Oakland, CA, on their mission trip experience.

    There’s another fun event happening at First Presbyterian Church on Saturday, June 30.  The Cache Pride Center will be hosting a pancake breakfast fundraiser that Saturday morning in Bruner Hall.  The Cache Pride Center is a wonderful group of people that work together to provide a loving and safe community for young people in the area, particularly those who identify as LGBTQ+.  You may be aware that LGBTQ+ teens experience higher rates of homelessness, suicide, family ostracism, and bullying than other teens.  This group hosts a gathering every Friday night at the Cache Valley Unitarian Universalist house, but that space isn’t adequate for a large pancake breakfast fundraiser, so they are partnering with us for this event.  Please come on out the morning of June 30 to have some pancakes, meet some new people, and help raise some funds to assist in a wonderful community organization.

    I would also like to include a note about stewardship in this newsletter.  I’m not someone to be alarmed about such things, but our expenses have been greater than our tithing income for the last several months.  As you know, we have two ministers on staff now, and the salaries (along with health insurance, etc.) for Pastor Meg and me make up the largest portion of our budget.  While our recent budget numbers are not alarming to me, I want to remind all of us of our vision for ministry in Cache Valley, and how important two ministers are for that vision.  In addition, during the year, unexpected things come up.  Our large refrigerator in the kitchen has recently been malfunctioning and will be undergoing a $900 repair the first week of June (which is much cheaper than replacement with a new unit).  These kinds of things are just the cost of having such a wonderful facility as ours.  I have faith in God—and in all of us because of our collective faith in God—that we will be able to meet our expenses for the year.  Session and the Finance committee strive to make sure that we are careful with our spending—in fact our actual expenses have been less than our budgeted expenses for many years in a row now.  We hope this reflects good stewardship.  Thank you all for the years of dedicated tithing that you have made to First Presbyterian Church, and we ask for your prayers, and prayerful support, that we can meet our financial obligations.

    I’d like to close with words of celebration.  Linda Skogrand will soon be commissioned as a Certified Lay Pastor (CLP) by the Presbytery of Utah.  This will be happening at a special Presbytery meeting on Saturday June 9, but we will celebrate this achievement with her in worship on Sunday, June 10.  Linda, a longtime resident of Logan and member of our FPC congregation, now lives outside of Moab and has recently started a new worshiping community called Not So Churchy in Moab designed to reach those who haven’t found a church home in that area.  The Presbytery of Utah is commissioning Linda as a CLP in support of her ministry work (and so that she can serve communion at their monthly gatherings).  June 10th is also the day that we will unveil the new stand for our baptismal bowl, handcrafted by Linda’s husband Steve Gilbertson.  Steve has been working on this stand for several months, and it has been custom designed to highlight the beautiful handmade baptismal bowl that the Memorial Committee gifted to the church several months ago.  Join us for worship on that day and remember that beginning on June 10 our worship times are 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

    And finally, EVERYONE is invited to an ice-cream social at 4:30 p.m. on June 10 for the purpose of welcoming Summer Citizens back to Logan, and to FPC.  Come and join us in the shade on the east lawn for some ice cream and fellowship.

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

    Pastor Derek
