We had the opportunity to attend Burnsview Baptist Church for the BLEXIT Conference as well as listen to Erik Corcoran speak on Sunday morning there this past weekend. It was a refreshing time of unified patriotism with like-minded Christians. It was packed! We thank Burnsview’s pastor, Tim Huckaby, for his bold stand in the community! Erik Corcoran recently started a movement called SC-We The People which has already attracted thousands of South Carolinian patriots.
Thank you for inviting our family to sing and play a patriotic concert this past weekend! It was so good to be back in church praising the Lord in music as a family during these difficult times in America. God has blessed our country in so many ways, and we have so much for which to be thankful. You are doing so much good at your church. It was a blessing to see so many children!
Happy Independence Day from the Rankins!
We had a wonderful time at our Laurens “Back the Blue” event today! We appreciated all of the representatives who took time to come and speak at this rally. We thank our police department for all of their work and protection! And we thank our Sheriff Don Reynolds for his wonderful leadership in our county! It was an honor to be able to sing at the close of the rally.
We’re so happy that Luke won the Laurens county council Republican primary tonight! There is no Democrat running in our district, and so this was the biggest part of the race. We’re very proud of Luke and of the fact that he gives God the glory for his win tonight!
If you want to see the moment Luke finds out he won, and his touching prayer, you can see it on Facebook here:https://www.facebook.com/LukeRankinforCountyCouncil/videos/683575588874009/
We are so excited to share this patriotic video with y’all that we made for Luke’s campaign for County Council! We were all able to be a part of it and had a lot of fun doing it. We want to wish you all a blessed Memorial Day weekend, and we hope you get to spend this time with your families and take time to remember our veterans and those who have died to preserve our great country!! God Bless America!

Thank you, Ressie, for asking us to sing at the graveside funeral for your brother, David Bearden. It was an honor. He sounded like a very special and godly man, and we look forward to meeting him someday in Heaven. You are an amazing woman, and our family loves and prays for you!
Although we may be housebound, that doesn’t stop us from worshipping the Savior of the world this Easter time. Luke’s friends in Laurens came up with an idea for families to put lit crosses in front yards. They were interviewed on the news the other day, and it has really taken off! There are now thousands of Crosses! Praise Jesus!
Thank you so much for inviting our family to perform music and preaching for your annual Fish Fry and Gospel Sing! It was so encouraging to see people from our church supporting the ministry you all have there. We felt God’s blessing on the event, and we were so glad to spend the night with you.
On Wednesday night, we had the opportunity to watch our church’s live online service with a small group of some of our friends at our house! We enjoyed being able to fellowship with others during this time. Unfortunately, due to the situation, some of our musical engagements have been postponed to a later date. We will keep y’all posted! We will be singing on Sunday evening March 29th for our church’s online service. Y’all can watch any of our church’s great services online every Wednesday at 6:30 PM, Sunday morning at 9:30 and 10:45 AM, and Sunday evening at 6:00 PM! We have included the website links below.
Thank you for inviting our family to sing and play a Christmas concert for some of our very favorite people in the world. It’s hard to believe that the first time we were there was over 22 years ago—before some of us were born! You hold a special place in our hearts. We love the residents and hope that ya’ll have a very blessed and Merry Christmas celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ—the Savior of the world.
Merry Christmas from the Rankin Family!
