Thank you to everyone who came to the 3rd Annual Singing and helped make it a very successful singing.  There were 434 who gathered and lifted their voices in song to praise God.   For those interested, a few pictures from the singing have been 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 next year's singing that will occur in February.
