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.

August Pastor Nominating Committee Report
The Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) for the First Presbyterian Church of Logan, had its first meeting on Thursday, August 20, 2015. The PNC members are Linda Roberts (Chairperson), Merideth Ferguson (Vice-Chairperson), Chris Hult (Communications Coordinator), Kevin Wiley-Drake (Secretary), Dan Cox, Patty Johnson, Barb Lutz, and Laura Sawyer. The PNC will meet weekly until a new pastor is called for FPC. We will provide the congregation with monthly updates via the church website and the Pulse.
Jeff Silliman, Executive Presbyter of The Presbytery of Utah, was present at the initial meeting to discuss committee basics for the PNC. He indicated that the overall process for selecting a pastor for our church would most likely take twelve to sixteen months. Rev. Silliman said it would be ideal to have a new Pastor in place by Fall of 2016, but at the same time, we all need to recognize that this is a time-consuming process that should be done conscientiously.
The committee will be seeking input from the congregation in the coming weeks as they conduct a Mission Study and then write the Mission Information Form, which will be posted online with the national Presbyterian church. The congregational input will likely take the form of a survey and perhaps small group meetings wherein the mission of FPC will be discussed. The reasoning behind doing a mission study is to ascertain the congregations strengths, opportunities, and current vision. Once we have outlined our congregation's mission, we will be in a position to search for a pastor who can help us fulfill it.
Please keep the PNC in your prayers as we embark on this journey toward calling a new Pastor, Head of Staff for FPC Logan.
