Moms Remember and Connect

Group’s summer releases focus on helping women build stronger, closer relationships with Jesus and with each other.

There are special moments in life that moms will always remember…

Group Publishing understands that women can change other women’s lives. That understanding has become a basic premise evident in every retreat, Bible study and women’s ministry resource Group provides, including their newest curriculum, Where Moms Connect, scheduled for release in July. Specifically designed to bring moms of all ages and stages together, this newest kit creates an opportunity for them to connect through discussion, faith-based conversations and having fun.

Created as an annual program kit, Where Moms Connect provides a group leader with everything necessary to guide a group through 18 twice-monthly meetings. Written to uplift and inspire, the content offered in this year’s theme, A Year of Encouragement,will leave moms feeling better prepared to handle the constant challenges that motherhood presents.

About Group Publishing: Far more than just a publisher of Christian ministry resources, Group Publishing is dedicated to offering products for group settings designed to help grow the participant’s relationship with Jesus. With a team made up of ministry experts known the world over, the company has a solitary mission to help church ministries succeed. From kids’ crafts to teen mission trips and from women’s retreats to men’s Bible studies, everything that Group offers is designed to bring participants closer to God.

Pursuing his dream to offer better tools for leading teens to Christ, Group Publishing founder Thom Schultz began the company in 1974 with the launch of GROUP Magazine, a resource periodical designed specifically for youth leaders, soon making Group’s name synonymous with youth ministry. It was not long afterward that Group decided to branch off into creating resources for children’s ministry. Soon the company was providing innovative VBS and children’s Sunday school programs and had successfully introduced Children’s Ministry Magazine. From there, creating resource materials for men’s and women’s ministries seemed a natural progression. Today, Group Publishing is recognized as a leader in the publishing of Christian resource materials for every age.



 

Sweet Summer Snacks that Stengthen

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.

Café Chocolate 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.”

:::WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:

New book by web pastor Nils Smith focuses on using social media to move people forward in their relationship with God

Nils Smith

Here’s what people are saying…

In the rapidly changing world of social media, you need a guide. Someone who gets it.  But more than that, someone who can help you get it.  Nils Smith is your guide.  This book is accessible to the newbie as well as the experience social media user.  A guide read that will leave any church leader better informed about social media. . . and better equipped for the cause of Christ.

-Nelson Searcy

Most ministries are aware they need to better use social media.  But how?  That is where Nils Smith comes in.  His book is in a simple-to-understand format that helps you develop a strategy for your social media.  Want to extend your message around the world?  Read, no implement, this book!

-Daryl Eldridge

This was one of the fastest most informative reads I’ve ever read. Nils Smith is the real deal. For the past 15 years I’ve witnessed Him not just speak these truths but live them out in his personal life. This book takes all the information I’ve been dying to get ahold of and explains it in crystal clear explanations that I can put into practice right away. A must read for every church that wants to be relevant in a social media driven society.

Nils truly has a passion for sharing the Love, Grace, and Mercy of Jesus in his Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the uttermost parts of the world. I’ve personally experienced his Jerusalem, where God’s doing amazing things in the lives of his family. I’ve experienced it in ministry environments here in our city of San Antonio, and now, God is using that passion to share His Grace w/ thousands to the uttermost parts of the world.

The Social Media Guide is a one-night read that is packed full of helpful and practical information. Whether you’ve never logged on and participated in the social media world, or perhaps you’ve got lots of experience, this book is fantastic. There’s a nugget for every leader in the Kingdom, so enjoy, get started, and let’s all join the journey of sharing the life-changing Grace of Jesus in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the uttermost parts of the world.
