Group Publishing Crafts a New Approach to Women's Ministries

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - June 8, 2007) - Group Publishing of Loveland, Colorado is offering a fresh twist for churches looking for new ideas for women's ministry events. Capitalizing on a growing trend, Group Publishing has developed an innovative resource called Girls' Night Out™ Party Kit: Bead Mania. This two-hour party-in-a-box resource contains everything needed to plan and host a craft-themed event where women create beautiful bracelets while enjoying fun and fellowship.

"We're excited about the reactions we're getting from churches around the country," says Robert Rizzo, Senior Marketing Manager with Group Publishing. "We've found there is a huge segment of women who enjoy the opportunity to be creative with other women and have some much needed "girl time" away from the stress of their everyday life. With these in-home parties centered around beading crafts, churches can reach dozens and dozens of women in a place where they are comfortable -- doing crafts."

At the Bead Mania party, attendees will create one-of-a-kind bead bracelets that they will keep as party mementos. The party is concluded with a time for conversation and themed snacks with recipes included in the kit.

The primary focus of the Girls' Night Out™ Party Kits is to help women build relationships with other women, especially women who normally would not come to church. Through this fresh approach to ministry, studies have found that women connect with each other and, ultimately, connect with God.

Group Publishing is the leading provider of Christian ministry resources and tools for just about every area of church ministry: children's ministry, youth ministry, adult small groups, women's ministry, pastoral ministry, and more. More information may be found at
