Group’s summer releases focus on helping women build stronger, closer relationships with Jesus and with each other.
Group Publishing is known as the go-to center for ministry leadership resources. With three new resources this summer designed specifically for women, it is clear Group does not intend to disappoint.
With the release of Café Chocolat in May, Group introduced a singularly sweet package providing everything necessary to plan and lead an affordable, hassle-free and life-changing retreat for women in the church and community. Even down to its name, the retreat kit is designed to bring honor to God. “We chose to use chocolate as a metaphor for God’s grace,” explained Amy Nappa, who heads up the adult ministry resources team for Group. “Those participating will taste God’s goodness through in-depth Bible study, unforgettable worship and a host of fun activities designed to help them slow down, enjoy their time together and grow closer to Jesus.”
In June, Group continued its focus on women through the release of This Means Love: Service Projects for Women Who Want to Make a Difference.This easy-to-use kit offers plans for 12 different projects ranging in scope from helping the homeless to caring for the elderly and comforting the grief-stricken. Bringing together all the components needed for a small group of women to easily plan and execute these simple service projects, the This Means Love service kit is great for women of all ages who want to join together to make a difference in their communities by spreading love to those around them.
“This kit works well in conjunction with the This Means Love Bible study,” said Nappa. “The study provides a biblically-based format to help women understand what it means to serve, how that service affects our faith and what exactly the Bible tells us about serving others.”
