About Joy Bible Study
Joy Bible Study is beginning its 37th year as an independent, non-denominational, community Bible study for women of all ages and levels of Bible knowledge. Over 900 women have come through our doors over the years.
We are a diverse group of women from many towns and backgrounds. Joy is a safe place to come together under the authority of scripture to study God’s Word without any doctrinal or denominational interference. We emphasize application—how to apply the simple truths of the Bible in our everyday lives. And Joy is a place where like-minded women meet and make lasting friendships.
Joy Bible Study was founded in Acton in 1982 as a satellite study of Grace Chapel’s Joy Bible Study in Lexington, MA. Every year we study one or more books of the Bible or topical studies. We are sponsored by Faith Evangelical Free Church but we are an independent Bible study that is self-supported and staffed by the women who attend Joy. We respect all backgrounds and church affiliations and all levels of bible knowledge. Coming together under the umbrella of Scripture, we focus on what we have in common and what brings us together—Jesus Christ—rather than on what makes us different.
We have a Children's Program which cares for infants through home schoolers. Childcare for infants and children up to age three is provided by our caring sitters and teachers. We offer a class for 4 and 5 year olds with age appropriate lessons, songs, and crafts. And we have a class for home schoolers.
