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.

  • Reformation Celebration!

    There is something wonderful for us to celebrate this month!  October 31st is the 500th anniversary of an event that many look to as the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.  On that date—All Hallow’s Eve—in 1517, the German monk, priest, and theology professor nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the church door in Wittenburg, Germany, an event that sent the Church (the Roman Catholic Church) and much of Europe into decades of chaos.  It’s not clear if Luther actually nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the church door or if the paper was distributed amongst the university and others posted it on the door, but many scholars believe it was Luther.  
    These 95 theses were list of topics which Luther wished to engage in debate with others within the Church.  His meticulous study of scripture led him to believe that the church was mistaken in many of it’s practices, and Luther wished to challenge those teachings and reform the church from within.  As one might understand, the Church did not wish to undertake such reform at the time.  Those who followed the teachings of Luther became known at Protestants (because of their protests), and later formed into denominations such as as Lutherans, Anabaptists, and Presbyterians. 
    What came out of the Reformation (actually a number of reformations throughout Europe, rather than one solitary path) altered the history of the world.  Lutherans, Anabaptists, Presbyterians, and even the Anglican (Episcopal) church all were formed in the decades after 1517.  There are well over 500 million Protestant Christians in the world today, descendants in the faith from Martin Luther’s pivotal theological work.
    Luther’s work—along with others such as John Calvin and Huldrych Zwingli—led to many of the strong theological themes of Protestantism.  We are saved by grace alone, and not by our works.  We are both saint and sinner (simul justus et peccator, in the Latin), and the three-headed Latin theme: sola scriptura, sola fides, sola gratia (scripture alone, faith alone, grace alone)—those being the three claims upon which Christians base our faith in God.  Luther also preached an idea called the priesthood of all believers, meaning that we all can interact with God in ways that the Church thought were reserved only for priests.  Luther wanted everyone reading the Bible and thinking deeply about their faith in God, not just listening to a priest for all of the answers about faith.
    I invite each of you to join us at First Presbyterian Church on the evening of October 28th for movie night.  We will be watching the 2003 film Luther, starring Joseph Fiennes as Martin Luther.  This film tells a fairly accurate and very entertaining story of Martin Luther’s life and his role in the Protestant Reformation.  The film will show in Bruner Hall, at 6:30pm.  Join us!
    May the grace and peace of Jesus Christ be with you all.
    Pastor Derek
