PHOTO: Flash mob sings hymns

From left, Olympia Amiday, 17, Jordyn Martin, 16, Sam Wesseling, 14, Erin Denning, 14, and Kelsey Hanson, 16, all of Mount Vernon, sing a hymn as part of a 13-person flash mob Sunday afternoon at County Fair Food Store in Mitchell. Organized by the Rev. Mindy Ehrke, of Salem Lutheran Church in Mount Vernon, the flash mob performed "A Mighty Fortress is our God," at both County Fair and Coborn's for Reformation Sunday. None of those involved had been part of a flash mob before, Ehrke said. The group, a mixture of the church's choir members and Mount Vernon High School students, had four formal practices prior to their performances, Ehrke said. (Chris Mueller/Republic)
