Believers and seekers grow in community together

Besides House Groups, there are also other small group opportunities for growth, as we are committed to growing in Jesus in community with one another, oftentimes around food!

Women’s Ministry: Journey Together 2021-22

Hello Women of AACRC!

After a year of virtual meetings and limited gatherings, we are looking forward to reconnecting and continuing our journey together as women this fall! We are hoping that small groups will again be able to meet in person and that we will be able to have more large group gatherings this year! And we would love for you to join us! Here are some details.

In small groups this fall we will be diving into the Word with an N.T. Wright study of Hebrews. We have small group offerings on 2nd & 4th Monday evenings, weekly Tuesday mornings, 1st & 3rd Wednesday mornings, and 1st & 3rd Wednesday evenings. The groups will start in late September. If you would like to participate and haven’t previously, please email Kellie Steen ( – we’d love to have you! If you participated last year, you should have received an email from Kellie earlier this summer.

We are planning a few large group gatherings. We don’t have details yet (and all pandemic caveats apply), but we invite you to watch for:

  • Bonfire in late September or early October
  • Advent by Candlelight on December 6

We are excited to see what God has in store for us as we study, fellowship, and journey together!

Tuesday Night Dinners

Greetings! If you are a college student or young adult newly arrived in Ann Arbor, please come and join us on Tuesday nights for dinner at the Lindquists’ home. The Lindquists and other “moms” prepare dinner each week for all you hungry, busy people. It is a time for good food, fellowship, and a moment for relaxing from your busy world.

Dinner is served at 7 pm, but you can come anytime after 5:30 pm to help set up the tables and chairs. We would love to see you!

Dinner Circles

(on hiatus due to the pandemic)
Dinner Circles is a ministry that involves groups of 6-12 adults who gather together for food and fellowship. Each dinner is at a different home with a different set of attendees, but consistently there is great food and the opportunity to make new friends.
