Our Bible studies are small group based so that we can have maximum participation and relationship building. Women’s Bible studies are offered Monday through Thursday with childcare available for a small fee Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. The women who participate come from diverse backgrounds and are in many different life stages. We love the diversity and richness of learning together from God’s Word.

Online Study: Finding I Am
“What is the deep cry of your heart? The ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.
Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study we will be trading feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before.” – from lifeway.com

Bible Studies FAQ
Do I need a book for my study?
Most studies do require a book or materials. For studies that require a book, you can purchase your book when you register. If you prefer to purchase your book on your own, you are free to do so. Some studies do not require you to purchase materials and are listed as free. Registration is required for all studies.
Do you have to attend AAC to participate in a women’s study or event?
No, we welcome any woman (post high school age) who is interested in taking a study or attending an AAC Women’s ministry sponsored event. Feel free to bring your friends!
Do you provide childcare for your studies?
Childcare is available for children 6 weeks to 6 years old during our morning Bible studies from fall through spring. We do not provide childcare for Retreat, noon hour, evening, or summer Bible studies.
How do I know what small group I’m in for my study?
Groups are usually assigned the first week of study. If you are unable to attend the first week your leader will contact you to let you know which group you are in.
How do I request being placed in a Bible study group with a friend?
We try to honor all requests pairing friends in their respective small groups for discussion. When registering, place your friend’s name in the appropriate box that asks for the name of your friend who invited you to the study. We do want to encourage you to be open to meeting new friends, too!
What does homework entail?
Each study is different, but nearly all of them do have some homework. Homework assignments vary, but the purpose is the same. Our hope is that you dig deeper into your study and spend time alone with God. Please see study descriptions to gain a better idea of each study’s homework commitment.
Why is there a deadline for childcare?
This deadline is necessary to encourage early registrations, which gives us enough time to obtain adequate staffing to provide your child with a safe and loving environment. If you miss the headline, please call the church office and we can put you on a wait list if necessary. A late fee is added to all registrations approximately two weeks before the study begins to help offset the administrative costs of handling late registrations.
Why is there a fee for childcare?
We require a fee for childcare each semester. This fee helps to cover a portion of the cost of our workers and supplies. We are responsible for having a safe and legal ratio of children to adults with no less than two adults per room. This fee varies per semester and covers care for your child from 8:45-11:00 a.m. each day of study. However, we never want the fees of childcare to prevent you from coming to a Bible study, so if you cannot afford the fee, financial assistance may be available by calling the Adult Ministries Administrative Assistant.
Why is there a late fee added to the cost of the study books?
A late fee is added to cover the cost of expedited shipping to ensure books arrive in time for your study. Studies that have no cost are not subject to a late fee.
