Ensley Study Options
Women’s Study – Me, Myself and Lies by Jennifer Rothschild
January 17 – May 23
We talk to ourselves all the time. We evaluate everything we do, comparing ourselves to others, and even call ourselves names. We disparage who we are instead of telling ourselves the truth about who God says we are.
Me, Myself, and Lies deals with our destructive, unrealistic self-talk. In this study Jennifer Rothschild explores the power of self-talk. As she takes us through the things we commonly say to ourselves, she teaches us to practice godly and biblical soul-talk. This study will be spread over the winter session by having video and discussion every-other week and homework discussion every-other week.

January 17 – May 9 (Green Room)

Come join us for another round of our marriage class. Years of discovery and life experience are boiled down into the things we’ve found most important and helpful for every couple to know and practice. Honest dialogue about our marriages will give you categories and handles for understanding and improving your marriage. Whether you have major struggles that you are working through or just want to make something good even better, this is a great place to start.
Women’s Study – 1 Peter, A Living Hope in Christ by Jen Wilkin
Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week. Each week will also feature video teaching by the author as well as small group discussion of daily homework.
