Written by scoopsnews on August 10, 2019 – 6:51 am -

 

Angie N. Bailey, 86, went to be with Jesus on Thursday, August 8, 2019.  The family will host a visitation on Monday, August 12th from 6-8pm at the Happy Gospel Church, 1915 53rd Ave East, in Bradenton, FL.  Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, August 14th at 10am at Kimbrell & Stern Funeral Home, 1503 Dawson Road in Albany, GA; immediately followed by internment at Crown Hill Cemetery.

 

She is survived by two sons: Pastor Bill Bailey (and Sally), and Mike Trotter (and Mona); five grandchildren: Caleb Bailey (Lauren), Chelsea King (Jamar), Caitlyn Bailey, Michael Trotter (Alison), and Matthew Trotter (Aubrie); six great grandchildren: Rowan King, Jeremiah King, Cade Bailey, Lauren Trotter, Collins Trotter, Blake Trotter; and one step-daughter: Diane Banks and her daughter, Tonyia Veloso.

 

Angie was born on July 1, 1933 in Thompson, GA as the baby of the family.  She was the last surviving sibling of 5 children. She married Lee Roy Trotter and had one child, Mike.  Following her first husband’s death, she married William (Bill) Bailey in 1968. They were married for 27 years, and had one child, Bill Bailey (Jr.).  

 

Angie worked at the Gordon Hotel in downtown Albany, GA; Camelot Restaurant (Ramada Inn) in Asheville, NC; and had an in-home daycare in Bradenton, FL.  It was common for her to take in family members who were in a difficult stage of life, and she served as an emergency shelter for Manatee Children’s Services when their main home was full.  She loved Gospel Music and enjoyed attending her son’s concert promotions throughout the country.

After retiring in Albany, GA, she moved back to Bradenton, FL in her late 70’s.  Her church home was Happy Gospel Church, where she loved hearing her son sing and preach.  She spent the last five years of her life on dialysis, three times per week. Special thanks to Caitlyn Bailey, Sally Bailey, and Valary Woods as her primary caregivers.

 

Flowers will be received by Happy Gospel Church on Monday, August 12th from 9am-4pm.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be sent to http://www.happygospelchurch.com/give.

Weekend Word With Vonda Armstrong

Written by scoopsnews on August 10, 2019 – 5:20 am -

 

Philippians 2:3-5 “(3) Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; (4) do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. (5) Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,”

CS Lewis said it like this: “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less”.
Let not obsess with our own issues and self-image. May we always strive harder to keep our focus on God.

Many people are hurting. I challenge you to reach out to them and be Jesus in their life today.

Happy Weekend Everyone from SGN Scoops!

His songs have been recorded by many household names including Elvis Presley, Barry Gibb, Glen Campbell, Barbra Streisand, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Dottie West, and Roy Orbison.

He appears on several “best of” songwriter lists. With 35 songs, he’s currently tied at No. 4 with Tom T. Hall for the most self-penned: 40 Billboard hits as a country artist. The pair follow Merle Haggard, Marty Robbins, and Hank Williams Jr.

IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR PRAISEFEST BRANSON FALL RETREAT

Written by Staff on August 6, 2019 – 10:19 am -

IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR PRAISEFEST BRANSON FALL RETREAT

IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR PRAISEFEST BRANSON FALL RETREAT

Johnson City, Tennessee – Prominent concert promotions company, IMC has announced plans to present a new Praisefest event in Branson, MO, in the fall of 2020. Eight years ago the successful promotions team conceived the idea of presenting an exciting weekend of Gospel music in the Ozark Mountains town of Branson, Missouri, a city that is famously known for its diverse entertainment theaters. That first year the event took place at the state-of-the-art Mansion Theatre.

Due to the overwhelming success of the event, which has been held annually each Spring for the past seven years, IMC Concerts has announced plans to  produce a Praisefest event that will also take place in the Fall of the year. The new Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat will take place October 26 through 28, 2020, and will also be held at the Mansion Theater.
“We think this new event will be a great choice for people who have told us their schedules simply will not allow them to come to our Spring event,” states IMC President Landon Beene. “We also believe many of the people who attend Praisefest Branson every year in March will want to come back again for the Fall Retreat because they love it so much.”
The 2020 Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat will include performances by such popular recording artists as Greater Vision, The Triumphant Quartet, The Hoppers, The Isaacs, The Whisnants, The Perrys, Brian Free & Assurance, The Nelons, The Ball Brothers, Joseph Habedank and The Erwins. Renowned speaker, Jim Cymbala, Pastor of The Brooklyn Tabernacle in Brooklyn, N.Y., will also be featured, as well as popular singer/songwriter and Christian comedian, Mark Lowry. “We’re really excited to be able to provide another opportunity for people to get together for a few days to enjoy some great Gospel music, lots of laughs, great fellowship and wonderful worship experiences in a unique atmosphere,” states Greater Vision’s Gerald Wolfe.
“This event has the potential to be the largest Gospel music event of its kind in the Midwest during the Fall season,” Beene states. “We are expecting seating to fill quickly so we are recommending people reserve their seats sooner, rather than later.” Registrations for this new event will begin Monday, October 7, 2019.
Make plans now to be a part of the first ever 2020 Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat. Complete information regarding the event is available at www.imcconcerts.com or www.PraisefestBranson.com.

Beyond the Song: Justified Quartet sings “Take a Stand”

Written by Staff on August 6, 2019 – 5:05 am -

Justified QuartetFor this edition of Beyond the Song, Jantina de Haan-Baksteen interviewed Justified Quartet from the state of Michigan.

Group members include: Tim Caldwell (bass), Mark Jacoby (baritone), Carl Ledford (lead), and David Potts (tenor)..

Jantina de Haan-Baksteen: Why did you choose “Take a Stand” as a radio single?

Tim Caldwell: In these times in which we live, the world is a broken place with plenty of people hurting. The church needs to move to meet the needs of people. However, if we simply go along with the world (in our actions, our dress, our language etc.), we are not distinguishing ourselves from what the world has to offer. We will never stand out as something new, fresh, different, real and true.

The church has to “Take a Stand” and hold the line to create the rock and foundation that people can count on in this world of sinking sand. The people who are the church need to be encouraged and challenged to act outside of the church walls. This song does that.

Justified QuartetJantina: What is the mission of the group?

Tim: Our Mission as a group is simple: To use our talents and passion for singing Southern gospel style music to present God’s word, His grace, His mercy and hope to a world that is hopeless.

But we can as a church body do far more, in this regard, when everyone does their part. So we also make our presentations to our fellow believers to encourage them to rise up and answer God’s call to all who follow Him.

Jantina: Where does your group’s name come from?

Tim: It’s from Romans 5:1 where it says: “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Jantina: How many tour dates does your group do in a year?

Tim: We typically book between 55-60 dates a year.

Jantina:Is there anything else you would like to share?

Tim:We thoroughly enjoy what we do. Meeting new people and having  developed dozens of strong friendships with people across our state and the Midwest is great. We are especially pleased when we hear from people about how they were encouraged by a presentation or through our music. Getting a call, card or conversation telling us we made a difference to someone, makes the long hours, many miles, and time away from home and family worth it in a tangible way. Seeing souls saved or people determining to take a stand is our fuel that keeps us going.

Thanks Tim Caldwell for sharing about your ministry. The SGNScoops team wishes you God’s guidance in reaching those who haven’t heard the good news.

We hope you enjoy hearing Justified Quartet singing, “Take A Stand.”
