An Update from Pastor Marc

Dear Quail Family,
As we continue to grapple with our response with the Coronavirus we should recall that this, and every other disease that we face, is the result of the fact that we exist in a world that has been damaged and twisted due to sin. Paul says in Romans 8,

For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.

Romans 8:19-24 (NIV)

When sin entered the world, the result was that the created order, including our bodies, would experience corruption, futility and eventually death. Therefore, all disease is the result of the fact of sin in our world.

Update from Tim Ankcorn about QLBC Response to Coronavirus

Hi everybody, I want to reach out to you in my role as Executive Director of Operations of Quail Lakes Baptist Church to let you know what the church is doing in response to Covid-19 or Coronavirus. By now you should have heard that we will not be holding public services tomorrow (March 22nd) and next Sunday (29th). Please join us instead as Pastor Marc will be leading our worship service “virtually” at 10 am on Facebook and 10:30 am on www.qlbc.org.

In response to Governor Newsom’s Stay at home order, we have started closing the church office during the week. But I want to reassure you that our church is still here to meet your needs. Our wonderful receptionists Carol Schmidt and Carol Biggs have agreed to take your calls at home. I have arranged with our phone provider to forward all calls during the week-days from 8:00 am to noon to their phones. They can answer your questions, pray with you and get your messages to our staff. Just call our main office number at (209) 951-7380 and they would love to talk to you. If you have to reach us after these hours you can still leave a message and we will call you back.

You can always reach our ministry staff directly by email. Our email addresses are available on QLBC.org under the Contact tab then press the View All Staff button. They will be checking their email regularly to respond to your needs. We will be meeting virtually on Tuesday morning to plan and pray as a group.

We are also initiating a “contact and care” process toward our isolated seniors. But let’s each one of us check in with one another over the next few weeks. Let’s let the love of Jesus shine through us to the Quail family and beyond. If you need help or want to help us in this project just call or email us.

Pastor Marc and myself will be meeting with the Elder Board on Friday morning to create a plan for our church moving forward. Please keep us in your prayers.
