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 our Cactus, North Ridge and Shea 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.
If your youngest child is in 4th grade or lower AND you work full-time, Marketplace MOMS is designed just for you and your unique needs! Through biblically sound resources, great speakers, encouragement and friendship, we’re inspired to make a difference in our homes, friendships, and with our kids. More information about our 2021-22 program coming soon!

The Grace Based Woman
Teacher: Amy Cavness
More than ever before, the world needs a counter-culture woman. A woman who seeks God’s wisdom for her marriage and parenting and for the intentional role she plays in her home. A woman who firmly roots her very identity in Him. The Grace Based Woman class is a place for moms of any age and stage to gain insight and encouragement into God’s call to a counter-culture life that aligns our heart to His, transforms our family, and reflects Him to the world. Join us!
Spiritual Disciplines for Moms
Teacher: Jessica Neill
Do you desire to dig deep into your relationship with the Lord in new ways? This year we will be spending time learning about different spiritual disciplines and applying them to our lives. We will also look at how to creatively share the same disciplines with our children, building a foundation for their own walk with the Lord! I invite you to join us for a season of spiritual growth!
Special Needs Parenting for Moms
Teacher: Carolyn Meyers
Has God entrusted you with a child who has special needs? Do you find yourself struggling with a mix of emotions as you chart this unique course? Join other moms who are navigating a similar journey. Led by Carolyn Meyers, we will dive into the book Unbroken Faith by Diane Dokko Kim. Together we will discuss relevant topics and see what God’s Word says about how to find strength, encouragement, and contentment in the midst of the unknown.
MORE for Moms Track 2 (meets the 2nd/4th Thursdays of each month, starting September 9)
$25/$70 with childcare (Exception: Alpha for Moms $50/$140 with childcare)
Parenting the Strong-willed Child
Teacher: Sonia Cleverly
Calling all mamas of strong-willed littles! Let’s spend the semester together talking about what it takes to raise humans with determined spirits, gently guiding them toward what God has designed them to be in His Kingdom and restoring joy to your relationship! Within the context of Holy Scripture (the ultimate parenting guide!), we’ll use material from You Can’t Make Me (But I Can Be Persuaded) by Cynthia Tobias and Tim Kimmel’s Grace Based Parenting message as we seek wisdom, share best practices, and encourage each other!
Prayer with a Purpose
Teacher: Jenica McMaster
A Bible study on powerful prayers highlighted in the Bible and how God responds to them individually. We will focus on how we can apply scripture to our personal prayer life and train up our children to do the same. We will go on a journey toward confidence and intimacy as we approach the throne of God…and we are going to have FUN doing it!
Alpha for Moms
Teacher: Tracy Goble
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to ask life’s big questions: What is my purpose? What happens when I die? Why is there suffering? Alpha is a chance to ask these questions and explore the Christian faith in a fun, no-pressure environment. Each session includes a short video and a discussion where you can talk through your thoughts and questions with a small group of people much like you. *Please note that Alpha is a year-long class.
Online registration for our MORE for Moms program coming soon!

Prayer Shawl Ministry
1st Monday of every month, 10am, The Café at SBC
Do you love to knit or crochet? Join us for a great time together as we learn to make prayer shawls that will be a blessing to others.
Threads of Hope
First Saturday of each month, 9am-12pm, Shea A3
Threads of Hope provides simple dresses and shorts to children in need around the world. Women meet monthly to sew, size, package and pray over garments that are taken by SBC missions teams to orphanages, refugees, or low-income communities. Often, this is the only new piece of clothing a child will own. A Threads of Hope label is sewn to the hem of each garment to remind the child that someone very far away made it just for them and to let would-be predators know these children are under the care of a loving organization. We would love to have you join us! Email email@example.com to learn more.
We’ve designed the SBC Women’s Discipleship Ministry to create a place to intentionally grow in one’s relationship with God in a smaller group or one-on-one environment. In Matthew 28: 18-20 Jesus admonishes us to “go and make disciples” that are committed to knowing Him and spreading His gospel message. This ministry is committed to enabling women at Scottsdale Bible to live out Jesus’ great commission by helping them grow in their knowledge of scripture, theology, and in their personal implementation of various spiritual disciplines throughout a structured, curriculum-driven, year-long program. If you are interested in being discipled or discipling, please fill out the application below so we can begin the process of connecting you with an ideal group to grow deeper in your relationship with God.
To those interested in being discipled, please note that we will be accepting applications again in the fall. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
