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.

    New Happenings at FPC Logan

    Dear FPC Members and Friends,

    There are some wonderful and interesting things happening around our church community.  As I write this article to you we have just come to the end of an important Sunday at FPC.  On the morning of January 28th we extended a call to Meg Vail to serve as our Associate Pastor for Youth Ministry and Christian Education.  Meghan is a graduate of Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, and will soon be moving to Logan from Austin, along her wife Jeannine Caracciolo.  Meg’s start date will be March 1st.  I am overjoyed that Meg had accepted this call to be our Associate Pastor.  I look forward to having her as a colleague for many years to come.  I hope that together we can create wonderful opportunities for growth in faith and service in God’s name.

    Not So Churchy in Moab

    I would also like to tell you about a new worshipping community that one of our members is starting.  Several years ago Linda Skogrand and Steve Gilbertson retired from their work in Logan and moved to Moab, UT.  They searched for a faith community in Moab for some time, but never found a place that was just right for them.  Last year a young teenager in Moab who identified as part of the LGBTQ community took her own life because of bullying that she faced at school.  This tragedy inspired Linda to try to do something.  She recognized that no churches in Moab were open and affirming to those who identify as LGBTQ, and realized that churches that are not open and affirming are part of the problem.  Linda wanted to create a faith-based community that is welcome to everyone, regardless of sexual identification or other aspects of life.  In recent months she has been working with FPC Logan (through myself, and the Session), along with the Presbytery of Utah, to establish Not So Churchy in Moab, a new worshipping community.  This group will provide a faith experience for those who might not feel comfortable in a more traditional church.  I would like to share with you the mission and vision of Not So Churchy in Moab:

    We are an inclusive worshipping community that embraces the outdoors and extends God’s had of love to the community through service—all guided by Jesus Christ our Savior.

    This worshipping community welcomes everyone because that is how God loves.  We are all created in God’s image and we view everyone as equal in God’s eyes.  We welcome poor and rich, all genders; all races and ethnicities, ages, physical, emotional and mental capabilities, educational levels, sexual identification or orientation; whether divorced, married, single, or orphaned.  And everyone else.

    We embrace the outdoors.  We will worship in the midst of God’s creation as often as possible and will engage in projects that provide care and healing for the earth.

    We will show our love for God by showing compassion and love to each other and the community through service.  ‘For I was hungry and you gave me food.’ (Matthew 25:35)

    In addition to her husband Steve (an ardent supporter), Linda has a few other women helping in leadership roles.  The first gathering of Not So Churchy in Moab is in the evening of Wednesday, February 7th.  Please join me in keeping Linda, Steve, and this new faith community in our prayers.

    A Note About Our Organists:

    In upcoming weeks those who attend the 11am worship service will notice a change on the organ bench.  Just over a year ago Brandon Clayton left his position as our organist (a position he held for about four years).  Brandon had enrolled in a Master’s program at the University of Utah, and planned to move his family down to SLC.  Brandon connected us with Karla Axtell, who has been our organist for about a year (and a wonderful one at that!).  Brandon still played on occasion when Karla needed to be away.  It turns out that while Brandon is still enrolled in his Master’s program at the U, he and his family never moved to SLC; they remain in Cache Valley.

    Recently Karla approached myself and the Worship & Music Committee with a proposal that Brandon return to the organ bench on a regular basis, with Karla available as his substitute when necessary.  This was also acceptable to Brandon (all along Brandon has told people how much he loved being our organist.)

    Beginning in February we will transition back to Brandon as our regular organist, with Karla as his substitute.  Please join me in giving our sincere thanks to Karla for the past year, and also in welcoming Brandon back to our midst.

    As a congregation we are very blessed to have these two fantastic organists who are not only available, but excited to be part of the worship music at First Presbyterian Church.

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

    Pastor Derek
