Dear Quail Family,
Our hearts are breaking as we witness the many calamities that our world is going through right now. Close to home however we feel deep sorrow for the many victims of the NorCal fires. At this writing it sees hundreds have lost homes and entire communities have been decimated. We all feel like we should do something! What should we do?
It is in times like this that the words of John Wesley come to my mind. He said, “pray as if everything depends on prayer and then work as if everything depends on work.” Surely we must pray for God in His mercy to be with those who are suffering. But how shall we work?
Today I announce that Quail Lakes Baptist Church is financially partnering with the California Southern Baptist Disaster Relief organization to support their efforts in reaching out to the fire victims. They are already on-scene and giving aid.
If you would like to donate toward our special offering for this effort, please Click here. If you wish to give by check feel free to do that this Sunday (8/22) or next (8/29). Or you can mail your check to PO Box 7955, Stockton, CA 95267. Please write disaster relief on the memo line.
This special offering opportunity will run from today through 8/31. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Dr. Marc A. Maffucci
