Fall Study Descriptions

Calm My Anxious Heart: A Woman’s Guide to Finding Contentment by Linda Dillow

“Women worry a lot. We worry about our children, our friends, our careers, our families, our spouses-the list could go on and on. Yes, we want to be content and trust God with our worries, but it's a struggle to let go and free ourselves from the burden of anxiety. If you're tired of worrying about all the "what-ifs" in your life and want to experience the calm and contentment promised in Scripture, Calm My Anxious Heart is what you've been looking for.” – from the back cover

Cost: $14 Early Bird / $19 after September 29

All Things New: A Study on 2 Corinthians by Kelly Minter

“The city of ancient Corinth was much like our own modern-day cities: a melting pot of electrifying cultural experiences to be had, along with the myriad pitfalls of spiritual depravity. Still, Paul wrote to the church of God in Corinth - meaning God’s church is meant to thrive in any city and every circumstance in which we find ourselves. Paul’s letter is as timely as ever. 

Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.” – from

Cost: $16 Early Bird / $21 after September 29

Bible Studies FAQ

Can I get a refund?

Life happens and sometimes plans don’t work out. We can offer a refund up to our Early Bird deadline. However, after the deadline, we have incurred costs to plan for your attendance and registration fees cannot be refunded.

Can my high-school daughter join me?

We appreciate that you want your daughter to join you in Women’s Ministry Events. However, our events are geared toward adult women. In order to create environments safe for other women to share, we require participants to be post-high school. As soon as she has graduated, we would love to have her join us. Until then, we encourage you to see what the Student Ministries program has to offer.

Do I need a book for my study?

The cost of each study covers all the materials you will need except your Bible. On occasion, there may be exceptions where noted. Materials will be distributed on the first day of study. If you cannot attend the first day, please contact Andrea

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 deadline, 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 registration?

A late fee is added to cover the cost of expedited shipping to ensure books arrive in time for your study, as well as managing late registrations. 

Becoming a mom is a major life transition involving new responsibilities of raising the next generation. We want to help you lay a healthy foundation so we offer mom and child catered programs that address important topics and also provide an opportunity to make new friends and find support.
