Welcome, Carroll Logan!

We have a new staff person at St. Paul UMC, Fountain City!
Welcome, Carroll Logan, our new Director of Music!

A word from Carroll....
I am excited to serve as your Director of Music and will strive to continue the wonderful heritage of excellent music at St. Paul.   It is a pleasure to work with Pastor Sarah and I am happy to be part of the team with Tim and others to help carry out the vision to strengthen and grow our church community.   
My wife Brenda and I look forward to being part of the St. Paul family.  We met at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, and she served for many years as Director of Christian Education at Fountain City Presbyterian Church where our children grew up.  Our son, Rhodes is the Chief Development Officer of the United Methodist Church Development Center in Nashville and our Daughter, Heather is a UT Extension Agent in Knoxville and is an active member of Ebenezer UMC.  We enjoy keeping up with all the activities of our six grandchildren.

Over the years I have held Interim Music Director positions at several area churches including: Cokesbury UMC, First Farragut UMC, and most recently started my fifth year at Trinity UMC in Lenoir City.  It will be nice to serve a church in our community with a great staff, congregation, and choir.

 If you are not currently singing in the choir and cannot commit to the choir year round, I hope you will consider singing with us for Advent and Christmas.  I am planning some very nice music for the season including “Classic Noels” by John Purifoy with a string quartet on December 20.  Come join us on Wednesday nights at 7:30 for rehearsal and sing with us in worship!!

We are so pleased that Carroll is joining our staff, and that he and Brenda will be part of our church!  Join us this Sunday, for worship at 10:45 on October 25 to meet the Logans!
