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.

  • Practice and Poise

    When I started practicing with the varsity football team at Valencia High School in southern California way back in the spring of 1990 our coach wanted us to learn one very important lesson.  Poise.  Coach Mike Marrujo (pronounced Ma-roo-hoe) wanted us sixteen and seventeen year olds to have poise—at all times.  Not only on the football field, but with everything we did in life.  It was an interesting lesson for us.  His primary immediate goal may have been to play the game as it should be played and to win football games (which he did quite a lot of over 35 years), but Coach Marrujo was an educator, and while I never asked him, I am certain his primary long-term goal was to shape young human beings who would amount to something in life and contribute to society.

    Coach Marrujo also taught us a little bit about football.  We were 11-2 that year (my junior year), but the following year we were 14-0 and won the California state championship (Southern section, mind you, as such a large state is divided into sections).  I think poise had a lot to do with it.  On the field we never panicked.  Ever.  We knew what to do and we did it.  When that didn’t work we found another way.  When I think back on that group of young guys, I find it quite remarkable that we were able to learn that.  What did we know as sixteen and seventeen year olds?  A whole lot of nothing, one might think.  But we were learning.  And among the things we were learning was poise.

    I have been thankful for Coach Marrujo ever since, along with the countless other educators who taught me something in life.  He finished his 35-year career with a record of 306-131-1.  I think he taught around a thousand young guys a thing or two about poise along the way.

    I am quite certain that I have failed to have that poise a few times in life (alright, maybe more than a few), but the lesson has served me well for 30 years now.  It reminds me of another lesson taught to Scouts around the country: Be Prepared.  And another that a seminary mentor of mine Dr. David Johnson taught us ministers-to-be: expect the unexpected.

    Now I don’t recall Jesus of Nazareth saying anything about poise, but when I reflect on his life, poise is one attribute that he must have possessed.  He carried himself with poise before of the Pharisees, when the people refused to listen to him or when the were unable to understand, and even when he was before Pontius Pilate.  Perhaps one could make the argument that when Jesus overturned the tables in the Temple he lacked poise, but I understand why he did that and only admire his intentions.  But for many decades now, my faith in Jesus Christ and my belief that God loves me and cares for me only reinforce my own feeling of poise. 

    I’ve been thinking about poise even more in the midst of this worldwide coronavirus outbreak.  So many things have changed, so many things are different.  What will the world be like in a few months?  In a few years?  But through all of this, poise serves me well.  Poise serves all of us well.  With those things we miss doing, the stresses of change, financial hardship, or family life.  Poise, remaining calm and collected, expecting the unexpected—all of these things serve us well.  And in turn they help us serve others well.  By serving others through our actions, and honoring and respecting others as fellow children of God.  Let’s see how we might be able to to use our own poise to make our world a better place.

    May the grace and peace—and poise—of Jesus Christ be with you.
    —Pastor Derek
