It’s sad to say that it appears the gospel singings in this area have finally come to an end. For the past year or longer the only singing has been at the Carlos Missionary Baptist Church and that singing hasn’t taken place for some time. Singings at Free Will Baptist Church have ended as well. Enon Missionary Baptist Church, Sand Prairie Church and Rock Prairie Church all ended their singings years ago. I guess all good things eventually come to an end.
