Ellen Hunt Celebration on January 14 Sunday,

On Sunday January 14, Ellen Hunt was lauded and applauded for her many years of music ministry to Market Square Presbyterian Church.

Ellen first came to Market Square when she was 22 years old!  And even though she moved around, and served many other churches in music ministry, she came back to Market Square, serving most recently as our interim Minister of Music. In recognition of these years of faithful service, the Session of Market Square Presbyterian Church voted to grant her emeritus status.

We are so grateful for what Ellen has done with us and for us through her years at Market Square: an assistant minister of music, a deacon, an elder, our interim minister of music.

Ellen helped guided our musical worship life during the past year and helped us to find Tyler Canonico, and, this fall Ellen has been serving as an assistant to Tyler as he got underway in a most wonderful way. Most of all, Ellen has been a friend to us in all the seasons of her life and ours. She is among the best Market Square has to offer.
