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.

  • Transmogrified?

    Do you remember the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip?  It’s an absolute favorite of mine.  The main character, precocious 6-year old Calvin, was named after John Calvin, the 16th-century theologian whose theological beliefs gave us the Presbyterian church.  Calvin was accompanied by his anthropomorphic stuffed tiger Hobbes, whom everyone else saw as merely an inanimate toy.
    I bring up Calvin and Hobbes because Calvin had an imaginary tool called a transmorgrifier.  Do you remember?  Calvin’s transmogrifier was a large cardboard box with a dial drawn on the side which could be set to whatever the user wished.  Calvin frequently turned himself into Spaceman Spiff using the transmorgrifier.  
    Really it was all just about the imagination and transformation of an adventurous six year old.  But those are two interesting ideas for the church.  Particularly transformation, which is what Jesus Christ and the message of his gospel are all about.  Think about the gospels.  It seems that everyone who comes into contact with Jesus is… transformed.  Everyone.  So how about us?
    I just returned from a fascinating Presbytery of Utah Pastor’s Retreat.  A dozen Presbyterian pastors from around the state gathered for a few days in Midway to spend time learning from each other and learning from our workshop leader, a pastor from Colorado named Brad Berglund.  Brad and I know each other from when I was a pastor in Denver some years ago.  Brad directs something called Illuminated Journeys, an ecumenical ministry devoted to deepening the spiritual lives of congregations and individuals.  He leads pilgrimages to places such as Iona, in Scotland, and the Camino de Santiago, in Spain.  His ministry is about helping congregations (and their pastors) discover ways to set the table for truly transformative experiences in worship.  If you were in worship on August 27th you heard the impact of my time at this retreat, as during the sermon I asked us to consider who Jesus is for us, and why we worship together.  This coincided with the lectionary text Matthew 16:13-20, with Jesus asking his disciples “Who do you say that I am?”  It’s an important question for us all to be prepared to answer.
    I truly feel that question leads us into the next question, “Why do you come to worship?”  Jesus didn’t ask this question, of course, but he indicated that he was building his church upon Simon-Peter, renamed Petros, and we as First Presbyterian Church of Logan are part of the worldwide community of Christian churches that began with Peter and the other disciples as they traveled afar to spread the good news of Jesus the Christ.  
    There is something very significant about being a body of worshipers, about being the family of God.  Every one of us has our individual faith in God and Jesus, and we could each sit at home or somewhere in the beauty of God’s good creation and meditate and pray about what that means to us.  But things change when we gather together.  Do you feel that way?  I hope that you do.  Many of you named those things in worship on August 27th, when I asked you, “Why do you come here for worship?”
    I am thankful for your answers.  I think your answers that day mean that, even with all of my faults and our faults, as a worshiping body we are pleasing to Christ just in our desire to gather together, sing God’s praises, and pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives.  
    The gatherings and the work of the body of Christ are about transformation.  Transformation of our souls, of our lives, and with all of us working together, transformation of our community and even of our world.  Some of you are newer to our church family, and some of you have been part of this church family for a long, long time.  I hope that all of us realize how transformative the Holy Spirit can and should be in our lives, each and every day.
    If we’re going to be followers of Jesus of Nazareth, we should be ready for some transmorgrification.
    May the grace and peace and transformative nature of the Holy Spirit be with you,
    Pastor Derek
