Inspiring Word from Karen Peck Gooch

Written by scoopsnews on February 7, 2017 – 8:10 am -

From Karen on Facebook:

Hey y’all! I usually don’t post things like this very often but I feel led to share this.
Last night I had a wonderful dream about the Lord’s return. We all knew the He was coming that day. The excitement was beyond anything imaginable. I remember feeling nothing but joy, peace, and love. When I woke up this morning I was disappointed that it was only a dream. I literally cried thinking about how I let silly things fill my mind that take the place of the important things. I need to be spending more time in the Word and listening more to His leading. The truth is…Jesus could return today! I should live my life everyday with that exciting thought and anticipation! And I want to sing songs that will bring conviction to the lost and encouragement to the believers. I know the Lord is coming back one day and I’m ready! Are you ready?
I love y’all beyond words. Thank you for your continued prayers and support!❤️

Thank you Karen for such an inspiring post! We at SGN Scoops love you and all you stand for.

Karen Peck and New River: Sailing down a new stream

Written by Staff on November 18, 2015 – 2:24 pm -

 

Karen Peck and New River

Karen Peck and New River

Twenty-four years ago, a dream was realized. In 1991, Rickey and Karen Peck Gooch, along with Karen’s sister Susan Peck Jackson, formed the musical ministry known as Karen Peck and New River. Little did they know that this ministry would literally take them all over the world. Since that time, New River has been awarded three Gospel Music Association Dove Awards and three Grammy Award nominations. Karen has been named the Singing News Fan Awards Favorite Soprano an unprecedented eleven times. Despite their numerous accolades, one single thing stands above all else. Their ministry is centered on proclaiming the name of Jesus Christ through song. Through all of their joys and sorrows, they have remained true to their calling and follow the footsteps of Jesus every step of the way.

Long before New River became a reality, a little girl named Karen was too small to be seen while singing about her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Karen says, “They used to stand me in a chair when I was three years old. Mama used to sing in church and my first time I remember singing, I sang ‘I’m Bound for That City.’”

Karen and Susan’s first recollection of Southern Gospel music was attending the All-Night Gospel Sing in Atlanta. Karen states, “I remember my Mom and Dad used to take me and my sisters to the All-Night Gospel Sing in Atlanta. Literally, they would be all night and we’d be in the Municipal Auditorium in Atlanta, Georgia, and they would last until six o’clock in the morning. I remember being mesmerized when Vestal Goodman came out on the stage.” Susan echoes Karen’s comments by adding, “I would get so excited when the Goodmans would walk out on stage and start singing. Vestal would step up to sing and her voice would fill the building. She was my favorite!”

Rickey Gooch says his first memory of Southern Gospel music was when his mom had a group come to their house to practice when he was a very small boy. Ricky Braddy shares that he’s always wanted to sing Gospel music, even as a child. He says, “I was four years old when I first blurted out the alto part to a song my sister was singing. She and I sang ‘When I Need Someone to Talk To’ in our little old church. I’ve done a lot of types of music, but nothing satisfies like singing about Jesus.”
