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 Spring

    It’s Spring!  Full of rain and sunshine and the promise of new life!

    Palm Sunday and Easter are nearly upon us, when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
     
    Throughout Lent our Sunday scripture passages have all come from the gospel according to John (and you know what looong readings they have been!).  Also in John’s gospel, when Jesus is teaching in the temple, he tells those around him that if they destroy this temple, in three days he will raise it up again.  Those who hear this may wonder how this might be possible, as the temple has been under construction for 46 years.  John tells us that Jesus wasn’t speaking about the physical temple in Jerusalem.

    John’s gospel is full of these little deceptions.  The temple isn’t that temple, it’s the body of Jesus of Nazareth.  The temple being destroyed is the crucifixion on Good Friday.  The temple being raised up is the glory of the resurrection on Easter.

    This makes me wonder about the things that are ‘temples’ in our lives.  If the temple represents the center of our lives, the places where we encounter the goodness and grace and wholeness of God, what do we do to refresh and renew ourselves as we pursue the core purpose of our lives?

    The theologian Walter Brueggemann even asks, ‘What if we are in the wrong temple?’  What if we are misguided in the things we have committed our lives to?  What if our temples are the places of work, the fields and courts of professional sports, the theatre, the mall, the online shopping or even the electronic screen itself (be it phone, TV, tablet device…)?  Dr. Brueggemann then suggests that there is an invitation from Jesus, one that says, “You have the wrong holy place, for the presence of God is not there.”

    The Lenten faith journey is our chance to move from the wrong places into the right places, the places where we find God in our fellow human beings, the places where we find community that nurtures the fullness of human life, the places where we encounter the resurrected Jesus in the faces of others.

    What might we do to get to these places, and how do we reside there on a daily basis?  I hope that you are discovering just these things in your own faith life, and in our community of faith at First Presbyterian Church.  I pray that these days of Lent bring you closer to Jesus and his workings in your life, and that you feel his presence and the goodness and wholeness that he provides as the Messiah.

    And now, for a change of pace…

    There are more details inside this edition of the Pulse, but I want to bring your attention to a few things that are happening this month at FPC Logan.  Palm Sunday is April 9th, when we celebrate Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.  On this day, we will have our traditional donkey procession just prior to 11 a.m. worship, and we’ll also have our traditional potluck breakfast together at 10 a.m. in Bruner Hall.  Join us for that time of breakfast fellowship!  On Palm Sunday, we will also welcome new members into our congregation; it’s going to be a wonderful day!

    Maundy Thursday is on April 13th.  FPC is hosting a joint service, along with Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and St. John’s Episcopal Church.  This will be a traditional service including communion and foot-washing, at 7 p.m. in our sanctuary.  If you would like to help with this service please speak with Pastor Derek.  I could use about 3-4 volunteers to help with the service.  Nursery care will be available during our Maundy Thursday service, and children are always welcome in the service.

    Easter is on April 16th, and we will have a sunrise service (out at Brian Owens’ house on the west side of the valley), along with regular 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. worship.

    There’s also a fabulous concert by the incredible Carrie Newcomer on Sunday evening, April 9th (Palm Sunday).  Tickets are required for admission (it’s hosted by the Bridger Folk Music group), but you won’t want to miss this talented artist in our own church!

    Also, be on the lookout for details of MOVIE NIGHT.  We’re putting together an evening when we will show Passion of the Christ, the 2004 movie starring Jim Caviezel.  This movie is a depiction of the last twelve hours of the life of Jesus, prior to his crucifixion.  The movie is rated R, so this viewing isn’t for young ones.  After the movie, we’ll have time for discussion about this artistic depiction of the Passion.

    Grace and peace to you all this day and evermore,
    Pastor Derek
