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.

  • Advent

    We’ve come once again to the season of Advent when we anticipate and prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the coming birth of Jesus the Christ.

    We have prepared an Advent Devotional Booklet for you this year, with the help of a great many members of First Presbyterian Church.  Please make sure to take a copy home when you worship with us on Sunday morning; we will have copies available at both worship services.  This booklet is intended to be a spiritual guide through your own journey of Advent, to the day when we celebrate Jesus’ birth.  We hope that you can spend a few minutes each day reading the scripture passage and the reflection for the day, as we intentionally reflect on what it means for this Christ-child born to Mary and Joseph.  One particular devotion entry asks us to consider our own purpose in life as we ponder the purpose of God entering into our world.  Another ponders what it means for Jesus to be Emmanuel, God with us.  Many thanks to Pastor Meg, Cathy Short, Chris Hult, and all of those who contributed by writing a devotion.

    I would like to introduce something else to the life of ministry at FPC.  I am always pleased to have people come in to the church office for a chat about faith, life, and ministry in our congregation.  I wonder if some of you might feel reluctant to ‘interrupt’ a pastor during the week.  I can assure you that I greatly enjoy having people stop by to chat.  I would like to introduce the concept of ‘lunch with the pastor’ to our congregation.  Some of you might feel more comfortable meeting over lunch or coffee (fair warning… I’ll be having the hot cocoa) rather than coming into the church office.  Here is my plan.  I lunch every Tuesday at Great Harvest Bread Company on Center St, just a block and a half down the road from FPC.  I eat from 12-1 p.m..  Occasionally I am a few minutes late if our staff meeting runs long, but I am always there unless I have been called away to an emergency.  I typically bring a book or magazine article; I like to read from Christian sources to keep my mind present and up-to-date on faith and theology issues.  But if you have something to chat about, please come on down and find me!  I will be there.  If you would like, you can always call or text my cell phone to let me know you are coming.  I would love to chat with you, over some delicious food, about things that are on your mind or issues concerning the congregation.  I hope to see you.

    I also hope to see you on Wednesday night December 5th for our ecumenical Service of Prayer & Healing.  That evening we have a service recognizing the sorrow and sadness that we might feel during the seasons of Advent and Christmas.  If you feel moved to do so, please join us at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary.

    I won’t write too much about the Advent and Christmas season in this space; you’ll have to read the Advent Devotional for that.  But I will say that this season is a very important one for me.  Yes, it brings joy and wonder, and I love it when the snow falls and makes things so beautiful.  This season is also difficult as we grieve the losses and pains in our lives, and I recognize that too – in my life and possibly in yours.  Whether my day has been full of joy or sorrow, the Advent season reminds me that Jesus Christ is coming.  He is coming into this world, as we celebrate his birth that occurred so many years ago.  And Jesus Christ is coming into our hearts—again and again every time we open ourselves up to his presence and the presence of the Holy Spirit.  That presence of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit is what truly brings me joy; there is hope for the world after all.  That presence brings me comfort in times of sorrow.  And that presence reminds me of God’s gracious love for you, for me, and for all of creation.

    May God’s grace and peace be with you my friends,

    Derek
