Revival Service
Black Creek Baptist Church, 137 Mont Clare Rd in Darlington (Dovesville) will hold their revival August 3-5. Services start at 7 p.m. nightly. Lost Sheep to Shepherds will be part of the services. The group’s members are brothers Clint, Sidney, and Cameron Calhoun.
The Calhoun brothers have been singing together informally since they were kids, learning to harmonize by singing around the stereo to hits from artists such as Alabama, Restless Heart, the Beach Boys, and the Eagles. Raised in a Christian family that regularly attended church, the boys’ roots are deeply seated in gospel hymns that have stood the test of time. Lost Sheep to Shepherds cover familiar songs from southern and contemporary gospel artists, as well as throwing in the occasional acapella hymn. For Lost Sheep to Shepherds, it’s all about Jesus and that’s the reason for singing!
