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.

  • Lent is Upon Us

    Lent is also quickly approaching. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, on March 6th. Pastor Meg and I will be participating in an ecumenical worship service at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church (along with St John’s Episcopal Church). I find it very refreshing to participate in these joint-worship services at various times throughout the year. It reminds us how we are all God’s children, and models the love and care of Jesus Christ.

    Ash Wednesday is where the Lenten journey begins. The scripture passages remind us about fasting and ashes, and we have an opportunity ‘receive’ ashes, as the sign of the cross is marked on our foreheads with ashes made from burned palm fronds from previous years. That mark of ashes reminds us that Lent isn’t just a 40-day exercise of giving up some joy in our life, but making time to ponder repentance. Lent is a time of journeying: on Ash Wednesday we read warnings about storing up false treasures, showing off our piety, doing harm to the marginalized in our world, and not living properly in community. The journey of repentance, however, reminds us that we travel toward the fullness of the Kingdom of God. It is in Jesus Christ that we find new life. I hope that you will join us for our Ash Wednesday service at Prince of Peace on March 6th.

    ************************************

    Our congregation is about to undertake a large project together. Inside this edition of the Pulse you will find an article about our upcoming pledge campaign to see if we can purchase a new roof for Bruner Hall and solar panels for our electricity usage. I hope that you will understand, appreciate, and prayerfully support this project.

    At the same time, it is important for us to remember our general tithing to support the regular mission and ministry of our church. Yes, that s-word that some of you might embrace, and other might dread: stewardship! I recently read this from Walter Brueggemann, a renowned Old Testament scholar. “We live in a society that would like to bracket out money and possessions from ultimate questions. The Bible insists otherwise. It insists that the issues of ultimacy are questions about money and possessions. Biblical testimony invites a serious reconsideration of the ways in which our society engages or does not engage questions of money and possessions as carriers of social possibility.”

    What is Brueggemann saying here? It seems that if we only ask for our offerings to maintain the structure of our church, we are missing an opportunity for discipleship that allows us view money and possessions as a force for change in ourselves, our community, and the world. One idea that strikes me in particular is the misconception that stewardship and offerings are mainly about maintaining or sustaining ministry. A church budget, however, should not define the life of the church. A church budget ideally reflects what we value as children of God and where we place our trust. It is important that we don’t give to the church only from the leftovers after our needs are met first. Giving of our ‘first fruits’ honors our commitment to God, to one another, and to our community.

    We have a tendency in our culture to collect what we earn or what we possess, to take care of ourselves and family first, and celebrate the image of being self-made or self-sufficient. What might our lives, and our world, look like if we used our money and possessions as disruptive forces in the world, used to bend the arc of society toward one of justice and love for everyone in God’s kingdom?

    Have a wonderful and blessed month of March. Spring will soon be here—let us rejoice in the idea of new life!

    Pastor Derek
