First Presbyterian Church’s Handbell Choir, directed by Cathy Ferrand Bullock, has become extremely popular in Cache Valley and has a reputation for excellence in a variety of music– religious, patriotic, classical, or show tunes. More than twenty ringers comprise the interfaith group, enjoying the challenging teamwork of playing five octaves of bells and chimes. Anyone is welcome to join when vacancies occur. The bell choir plays several times a year during worship services at the Church, as well as for Christmas programs at the Logan Tabernacle, and for other organizations.

June Pastor Nominating Committee Report
After 10 months of weekly meetings, discussions, homework and fervent prayers that God would bring us the right person to lead our amazing congregation and give us wisdom in our decision-making, the PNC is delighted to present Pastor Derek Forbes for the position of Head of Staff/Pastor! In the words of the committee members, we extended the call to Pastor Derek because he is “outgoing, people-oriented, has strong interpersonal skills, is excellent with people in crisis, and has a passion for pastoral care. Pastor Derek has a calm and 'always thinking' leadership style as well as the ability and willingness to be flexible in that style. In his interviews, Pastor Derek’s responses emphasized the four main competencies that we were seeking for the right fit for First Pres Logan: He is collaborative, a great communicator, compassionate, and a bridge builder. Pastor Derek also has a strong connection with the community, which is important to our congregation.” Pastor Derek’s start date is July 1, 2016.
The Congregational Meeting to approve this will be June 12 after a single 10:30am service that day.
We know that to ensure a smooth transition from associate pastor responsibilities to head pastor responsibilities will require the support of the PNC, session and the entire congregation!
Thanks for all your prayers!
