LÖGBERG CENTENNIAL YEAR, FÖSTUDAGUR 15. JÚLÍ 1988-7 Churchbridge settlement During January 1898 eight families from the Logberg settlement joined the Thingvalla congregation and four from the Thingvalla area. Four left the community. There were 30 fami- lies remaining in the congregation for a total of 162 members. At this time all church services and concerts were held in the communi- ty hall. As time went on the Logberg District residents felt it difficult to at- tend concerts having to travel 12 to 15 miles. They suggested the hall be moved closer to them, but the settlers in the district to the south were against this. The end result was that a church would be built in the Log- berg district. The congregation sup- plied some money for the project. The Logberg district residents raised money and supplied all the labor. The church was built during the years 1902-4. The farmers to the southwest be- came dissatisfied and left the Thing- valla congregation during the winter of 1901. In October of the same year Rev. Jon J. Clemens came and remained until in November. He held services and performed other ministerial duties. He held a meeting with those who left the congregation and the de- cision arrived at was to form their Celebrity musicians Name: Christopher Marvin Siger- son, (original spelling of surname — Sigurgeirson).

The dedication of his and the Log- berg District church was carried out on the same day. Rev. Hjortur J. Leo was installed as minister to these two congregations at the same time. The president of the church association Rev. Björn B. Jonsson carried out the dedication ceremonies. At a meeting of the Logberg congre- gation on Jan. 12 1910, Rev. Hjortur Leo expressed dissatisfaction with the arrangement that church services were being held in the church hall in the Thingvalla district, where dances and banquets were being held. It was agreed at the meeting to sell the main part of the hall and to have the smaller section for church serv- ices only. At a subsequent meeting the hall was sold to the Good Tem- plars for $ 150. It was decided to build a new church beside thé graveyard in the southeast part of the district. The church was completed in 1911 and dedicated the same summer bearing the same name as the congre- gation. The end result was that the Thing- valla congregation owned two churches. In Jan. 1914 it was agreed to divide the congregation. The Log- berg district church was tó go on its own and take possession of the church building in their area, and would be known as the Logberg con- gregation. The southeast part of the area would retain the Thingvalla church and the congregation would bear the same name'.'
