Shabbona United Church of Christ will hold its annual Tent Revival featuring the awarding-winning band New Blood Gospel Bluegrass Band.
The band recently returned from the North American Country Music Association Awards with Best Bluegrass Band, Best Album, Best Banjo, Best Instrumentalist and Best New Vocalist of the year awards.
New Blood will perform and lead the music for the 9:30 a.m. worship service on Sunday. Everyone is welcome. There is no charge for admission. Refreshments will follow the service.
“Tent revivals are a part of American church history,” Pastor Jim Allen said in a news release. “I remember as a small boy my parents taking us kids to a tent meeting out in the middle of a farmer’s field. The revival had all the excitement of a county fair or carnival.”
“For several years now we have been giving tribute to that tradition by holding a Tent Revival on the lawn of Shabbona United Church of Christ,” he said in the release.
Shabbona United Church of Christ is located at 104 E Navaho in Shabbona. For more information, call 815-824-2359.
