Can I get the Mormon kids who stopped by my door the other day back to teach me their religion?

A while ago, two Mormon kids knocked on my door to talk with me. I talked to them briefly. During our talk, my own baby needed my attention, so I didn't talk to them long. They practiced speaking Chinese with me during our conversation, which they seemed to enjoy. I didn't think too much about this for a while, then I think it will be cool to learn Mormon religion from them, or learn more about the bible with them. They can practice Chinese with me too. But is it ok to contact their local Mormon church to request somebody to visit me and teach me their religion? Due to my busy schedule, and the lack of interest of my husband, our family don't go to church. I start to have interest in the bible, which I can read myself, but I would be more interested in joining a mother-baby bible study group or have some one on one bible study thing. I grow up in a country where there's no education on religion, so I have very vague idea of the Christian culture in America. I have no idea among all the different Christian churches, which one is more likely to provide something I am looking for. I really don't want to go bible study and then be pressured on to join a church or convert to Christianity. I am at a lost as to how to find a fit for me. Check out church website? Call them to ask about small group bible study for beginners? There is an Catholic church right next door to my home. But they seem to only welcome Catholic. People who know churches, please help me.
