Scripps-Mesa Bible Church

Scripps-Mesa Bible Church, in cooperation with "Abiding in the Vine," is offering the opportunity to "Be Still and Know God." We are co-sponsoring a one-day spiritual retreat on Saturday, Apr. 27, from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. The retreat will be held at the San Luis Rey Mission Retreat Center in Oceanside.

The cost is $25, which includes continental breakfast, buffet lunch, and retreat workbook. The retreat is reflective in nature and will focus on the themes of silence and solitude. Spots are limited. For more information, contact us at 578-4673 or "Abiding in the Vine" at [www.abidinginthevine.com]. Stop the madness for a day and reconnect with God.
