Rev. Pem Cooley is now our Parish Associate. The Parish Associate position is a new one here at FPC. It is usually filled by a retired minister who has made a particular church his or her home in retirement who desires to contribute in meaningful ways to the life of the church—a sort of auxiliary pastor.
Pem has been associated with FPC ever since 2004 when his wife Lucy became a member and he has most recently held a position on staff here as a part-time pastor. Pem will continue into his fourth year leading the Thursday Bible Study Lunch Fellowship and you will see him leading worship, officiating at special services, and spending time in visitation with members and families.
Pem is a member of the Explorers Sunday School class and is an active participant in the Georgia Presbyterian Pilgrimage program. Pem and Lucy have two adult children, Brian and Laura, who live in Atlanta.
