5th Annual Singing Recap

Our Fifth Annual Singing was a great success.  We had 517 present and it was a thrilling evening to be able to assemble on Friday evening, February 26th to lift our voices together in praise to God.  This singing, like the last four, was truly uplifting and edifying night for those who were present.  For those interested, a few pictures were taken from the singing will be placed in the photo gallery of this website and also, on  Market Street's Facebook page.   Also, the song will be uploaded to the website soon.  We hope that you will make plans to be at the Fifth Annual Singing on February 24, 2017.
