February happenings include the Men's Breakfast at 7:30 am on Saturday, Feb. 2, at Mimi's Cafe and our God Chaser's study group meeting at 9 am on Tuesdays. Our monthly Movie Night is a big hit.

Scripps Mesa Bible Church (SMBC)

In the book of Ecclesiastes, a book of great honesty and brutal truth, the writer says God has placed eternity into the hearts of people. God has given each of us an inner sense of a reality beyond our mundane existence. It is an awareness that compels us to accomplish, create, and succeed. Sadly, we often settle for so much less in life. Ecclesiastes shares the disheartening wisdom of one who honestly looked at all his pursuits and found them ultimately a waste of time and energy. He ends his searching with these words: "Here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep His commands."

We at SMBC desire for you to have fullness of life through Jesus Christ. We are here to help you not merely exist, but embrace the adventure of faith God desires for you and sent His son to provide for you.
