Grace Fellowship Church came out of the prayers and passions of key people who are now part of our church. Casey Jones, who lived in Preston and went to be with the Lord in June of 2007, had prayed for years for an evangelical church in this town. Tom and Kathie Palazzolo who minister with the Christian Motorcyclists Assocation, had taught a Bible class in town for a number of CMA members and they all desired to have a church of their own right here. When Bill and Gloria moved back to the area from Wyoming, they were contacted about the possibility of starting a church.
The congregation held its first official service with 23 people in attendance at the Senior Citizen's Center on April 6, 2003. Six months later we moved into our present facility on State Street and now rent two buildings which house our church ministries.
While Bill and Gloria lived in an apartment in Logan, Utah they had a Sunday night service in Logan for almost a year, then carried on two services for 6 months - mornings in Preston and evenings in Logan, until the congregation decided to converge on Preston and consolidate the ministry there. Bill and Gloria live just outside of Preston in the Riverdale area, and have become fixtures in the community. They love this area and, along with the church family, are praying for 1,000 people to come to know Christ as Savior out of northern Cache Valley. Our church family has a vision for future growth and expansion and we're praying about a large piece of property on the north end of town on which to someday build and grow a church to the glory of God. Many of the towns around us in southeastern Idaho and extreme northern Utah have no Christ-centered church and we believe God put all of us here for His purposes! Come and join us in the work of the Lord!
