Phil and Kendra Logan Christian Service Scholarship
CONGRATULATIONS to Molly Elkins and Katie Koerper for receiving this year’s Logan Service Scholarship! 
June us on June 4 at 10am to celebrate this achievement with them.


This scholarship is to honor Pastor Phil Logan for his service as former pastor of Solomons United Methodist Church (SUMC) on two different occasions as well as Pastor Logan ‘s wife, Kendra. Phil and Kendra Logan are well known in the SUMC congregation for their selfless dedication to Christian service through their ministries of teaching and nursing.

clothe themselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
