This is an incredible way for you to nurture yourself spiritually and have a great time doing it! We have many options to choose from at all of our campuses.

Our Bible Study Teachers
Scottsdale Bible considers studying the Word of God a priority, and this is a key foundation of Women’s Ministry. We are blessed with an incredible team of gifted Bible teachers who inspire and encourage us to grow in our walks with Christ. Each teacher spends many hours in preparation and prayer. Their caring leadership allows women to learn and apply God’s Word while connecting with others in a small group setting.

Cactus Moms is a growing and active community that fellowships together as they draw closer in their relationship with God through prayer, socials, Bible studies, outreach, and discipleship.  We would love to have you join us, if you have any questions please contact us at

Colossians and Philemon (by Max Lucado) – A Bible Study for MOMs
Tuesdays, January 22–April 9, 9:30-11:30am, Family Life Building
(Childcare available with registration, $30)

Teacher: Brooke Hellestrae
Do you remember when God amazed you? When He marvelously provided for you? Sadly, sometimes we forget Gods mercy, we lose sight of His grace. The early believers in the Colossian church had forgotten. Instead, they were impressed by spiritual claims from false teachers, and the church was starting to add some “extras” to salvation. The apostle Paul’s letters reminded them that Jesus is all we ever need. As Paul encourages and challenges us, he gives principles for living and interacting at work, in our families, and our churches. Paul’s letters remind us of the difference Christ makes in every aspect of our lives.

Mom Socials
Cactus Moms have a Facebook group that announces the variety of events and socials they have planned. They meet in homes, attend events together around town, schedule park and lunch play dates, and do life together in wonderful community.

Cactus Women in the Community
We actively serve our community in a wide variety of ways, such as serving together at House of Promise and Hope, Paradise Valley Emergency Food Bank, Larkspur and Palomino Schools, and Mentor Kids USA. If you would like to get connected by serving with us, please email and we will put you in touch with the outreach leader of the group you are interested in.

Monthly lunches every third Thursday, 11:30am, Bunker
We will share lunch together and other fun activities—something different each month. We might enjoy games, share recipe tricks, see a movie, hear a devotional and pray together, or even enjoy crocheting. The main thing is to enjoy each other in friendship and connection, both at our lunch and at other times throughout the month. For questions, please email
