Midway Baptist Church announces; Sunday, May 29, 1100 am : The Talleys are one of Christian music's most beloved and respected families. Their commitment to excellence and creativity in music have been their trademark since their illustrious career began, and their clear communication of the gospel is a defining characteristic of a Talley concert.
The Talleys began in 1984 and enjoyed many years of success, including a Dove Award and numerous Singing News Fan Awards. Following a three-year hiatus, the Talleys began performing together in 1996 with the current lineup of Roger, wife Debra and daughter Lauren, and today the Talleys remain a mainstay of Christian music.
The Talleys have enjoyed eleven number one songs, and have received numerous Singing News Fan Awards and Dove Award nominations. They are frequently recognized for their appearances on the Gaither Homecoming video series and concert tour, as well as In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley and John Hagee Ministries. They have appeared on RFD-TV's "The Music City Show," and have toured overseas to Norway, Northern Ireland, Italy and South Africa. The Talleys consistently take their music with a message to hundreds of concert and church audiences of all sizes across America each year.
"It's message music. When people hear our songs, we want them to clearly understand the gospel in the lyrics, and know that God really can make a diﬀerence in their lives," says Lauren. "Whether we're in front of thousands, or in the local church on a Sunday, that message is the same."
The Talleys are a self-described "normal family," but whether they grace a concert hall, a church platform or enjoy a ball game on TV at home, they are dedicated to God and family.

“North Carolina Baptist Women”
Women's Missionary Union, Women on Missions, Embrace and Ladies Circles continue to move the cause of Christ forward. In the Ashe Baptist Association we realize that the church of today would not be as strong as it is if, it were not for the women of the church. I appreciate all the hard work that is done in the churches by the women . From being on missions, praying for missions, raising money for missions, administrative work, teaching, cleaning, cooking while raising a family and many working at a secular job to help the cause financially. You answer His call each day to serve Him. I am amazed at the challenge that women put forth for all of us. As we all follow the leading of the Holy Spirit we move forward as a mighty force serving the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The Bible is full of Godly Women, in the Old Testament and the New Testament who served and worshipped God as He led them in the Kingdom’s Cause! The work continued from Bible days until today and will until Jesus comes to takes us all home. I encourage the women of the Ashe Association and other churches to renew your work for Christ and work as never before. Together with the men of the church our youth and children we must be about the Father’s business! Now more that ever before. I am thankful for the Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong work that is done each year to support our missionaries on foreign lands and North American area. 3,645 International Board Missionaries and 5,684 North America Board Missionaries are at work for Christ because Southern Baptist Church work together to promote the Kingdoms Cause. Through the Cooperative Program funding is given to them each month and they stay on the field and do not need to come home to raise money. The women of the church as well as the men support them each Sunday when they give their offering on Sunday. Why do churches choose WMU? WMU is the trusted leader in Southern Baptist missions for 125+ years. WMU is Biblically and educationally sound resources and use age-appropriate missions education and easy-to-use curriculum . Women on Missions are actively involved in doing mission project at home and abroad. Embrace is a ministry of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina that seeks to encourage women to walk humbly with Christ in their world and build strong families capable of creating a legacy of faithfulness. Vision for Embrace is God's call to pray for and minister to women, their families and future generations for the building up of Christ's Kingdom. Their mission is to responds to God's call and design for women to live in intimacy with Christ as they serve Him through the local church to prayerfully care for and develop evangelism, discipleship and missions in women leaving a legacy for future generations. Embrace seeks to help churches and associations develop women’s ministries that encourage and equip women to be growing disciple-makers who make disciples who make disciples Some churches have Ladies Circle which is involve in mission work at the church and beyond. Together these ladies do the work of Christ. I challenge all ladies to be involved in missions at the church you attend. No one is too young or to advanced in age to serve. I am not about to give in to the world and to the tricks of the devil! I know what Gods word says and I am more determined now than ever before to help all peoples to know Him! May we as women, men, youth and children be about the Fathers business as He leads each one of us in His work. We are heaven bound but until then we will work until Jesus comes!
Your Servant , David
