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.

  • Backpacks, Blessings, and Cupcakes

    In preparation for Blessing of the Backpack Sunday at FPC Logan on August 22nd, I finally took some time to clean out my Texas Longhorns backpack that always travels with me to worship on Sundays. I figured I owed it to myself to create space in which to receive maximum blessing potential as I begin a new education year at our church. You might remember that Mary Poppins was known for magically pulling random items out of her bag that you’d never expect to fit, and I was very close to having a Mary Poppins situation. When I dumped out the contents, I found what you’d expect me to find…some long-lost papers, smashed peanut butter crackers, an eraser, pens that no longer have ink, a pack of playing cards from the Denver mission trip. I also found some unexpected gems: an extra copy of the “Hallelujah” that was hidden in our sanctuary during Lenten worship, a hand-written note from a church member, an item belonging to a game in the youth group room. The backpack cleaning gave me the opportunity to take stock of blessings and to reflect on church ministry and memories from this past year. Perhaps you have a few minutes to sort through your own bag. What would you find?

    At the beginning of this new education year, there are some things I want to set aside and some other things I want to honor. Let’s call it a “fall cleaning” instead of a spring cleaning. I want to set aside my attitude that the way in which “something has always been done” is the way something must be done today. I want to honor the ways in which we, the church, have navigated and continue to navigate this pandemic with grace and mercy towards ourselves and our neighbors. I want to set aside those items stored in the closet “just in case” they can be used, and stock up on fresh ideas and materials to usher in this education year with innovative thinking and planning. I want to set aside my frustrations when our sound system gives us a hiccup while we’re trying to livestream worship and honor the dynamic worship that we offer to God together with our hearts, minds, and voices, with or without technical perfection. While I’m at it, I also want to honor the persistent dedication of our worship volunteers and musicians who share the incarnate love of God with us every week.  

    I want to acknowledge and grieve the sense of lost time that I imagined many of us experienced last year, set it aside, and honor the time that God has given us today to love and serve in a variety of callings and capacities in our community. Just last week, our youth group donated two hours of their time one evening to packing backpacks for the Cache Food Pantry’s backpack program, ensuring that children won’t go hungry over the weekend when they leave school on Friday. This activity was a powerful reminder for me that often, when we respond to God’s initiative, we have no idea the magnitude of blessing we offer. You are a blessing to this church, and together, we will continue to be a blessing in our corner of the world at 178 W. Center Street. 

    There are some wonderful things coming up that you do not want to miss at FPC Logan. Over the weekend of September 18th-19th, we will gather at Camp Hunt on Bear Lake for an All-Church Retreat, which continues to be thoughtfully and creatively planned by our planning team: Paul Davis, Beth and Mark MacDonald, Mary-Ann Muffoletto, Sara Hunt and Ben Crabb. There will be something for all ages, including a photo booth and activity stations. I’m praying that there will be s’mores, but am comforted by the knowledge that, s’mores or no s’mores, there will be delicious food to share and good company with whom to share it. In October, FPC Logan will host Loaves & Fishes on Saturday, October 16th, and your Mission Committee is preparing another Mission Sunday for Sunday, October 31st. Stay tuned for more information about the October outreach events.

    Pastor Derek returns to FPC Logan this week. I hope you’ll join us in welcoming him back from sabbatical with our outdoor cupcake party after both services this Sunday, Communion Sunday, September 5th! It will be great to have him back, and Pam and I have done some “decorating” in his office that is appropriate to the occasion. Stop by to see us and give him a warm elbow shake when you’re in the neighborhood. Don’t forget your mask!

    Grace and peace, Pastor Meg
