Cafe Chocolat

Café Chocolat Retreat Kit
Group Publishing, May 1, 2013
ISBN: 97810764490675/$69.99

Everything is included, except the chocolate.

Cafe Chocolat includes a worship CD, a leaders' training and promo DVD, a tote bag to carry supplies in, a cute bracelet with one of my new favorite verses on it, and Biblically based lessons. It also includes a director's guide, a leader's guide, a journal, and lesson plans for the entire series. There is als a computer CD of graphics included. 

This is a great kit for women's leaders at their church - to start a women's Bible study in the community. It lists everything you need to provide for the Bible study (such as the chocolate) and detailed instructions on how to set up, what to say, games to play, etc. Each woman will need a journal as that give spaces to write, instructions for some crafts, places to write information, words to the worship songs, and the Bible text (in case someone forgets their Bible or doesn't have one.)  

If you are looking for a women's Bible study this summer, then you will want to consider Cafe Chocolat.  Recommended. 

Whether planning a retreat, Bible study or devotional, Group Publishing has long been known as the go-to center for ministry leadership resources. With preparations underway for the summer release of three new resources designed specifically for women, it is clear Group does not intend to disappoint in the future.

With the release of Café Chocolat on May 1, Group will be introducing 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.”

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.
