What We Do
Being based at the foot of the Colorado Rocky Mountains gives us a constant, majestic reminder of God's love and power in our lives. We use that inspiration to create resources for ministry to women, men, families, small groups, pastors, worship leaders, and even administrators.
We also have a wealth of resources for those who lead ministry volunteers (which is just about everybody). You'll find books, curriculum, magazines, websites, DVDs, CDs, kits, events, online training, and so much more here at Group. If your church does it, Group can probably help. (A lot.)

Reviews - What do customers think about Pray And Play Bible For Young Children?
Fantastic!! Just what I needed!! Mar 16, 2007
Pray & Play Bible 1 & 2 are very good tools to use for a small group or large group of children, awesome illustrations and wonderful lesson planning. This book gives you the Bible story and ideas of crafts and games. We liked it so much we got one for each of our Sunday School teachers...It's a buy!!
A Great Resource for Moppets Nov 6, 2006
We are using this book with our Mothers of Preschoolers Moppets program. The Bible stories are brightly illustrated. Though the ideas are designed to be used at home with your preschoolers, many lend themselves well to use in the Moppets classroom giving the leader a variety of choices of activities and crafts.
pray and play bible Nov 2, 2006
We use this book for our bible time during our homeschool co-op for our 2-3 year old class. Kids love the illustrations and the simple stories, and the moms (teachers) love easy-to-prepare activities that go along with the lessons. I even bought extra books to give it out as gifts for moms to use with their young children at home!
We LOVE This Book!! Oct 11, 2005
My daughter, age 2 1/2, loves this book so much she asks for "stories and crafts" every day. I love the fact that the this book has a simple craft ideas, snack ideas, memorable songs & finger plays that accompany and are tied to every illustrated bible story in the book. This makes it easy for me do a simple family devotional with my daughter since everything I need, (except the craft and snack materials) is all in one book. And the stories, action ryhmes and songs are innovative and fun. They are so memorable my daughter has spontanously started repeating them hours after our bible time has ended, and when we sit down to do one story and she often asks for me to repeat the previously told stories as well. I orginally purchased this book when my daughter was experiencing seperation anxiety and didn't want to go to children's church so I could do something with her at home, on Sundays, but now we do devotionals from this book almost every day, we love it so much. I would recommend this book to almost anyone who wants to introduce there little one to God. Group Publishing makes a "Pray & Play Bible 2" I just ordered it since we loved the orginial "Pray & Play Bible" so much. I envision using both for years to come, and when my daughter outgrows it I will keep it to with my future Grandchildren.

I can't remember being this excited about a book in a long, long time. This is an incredible book. It is well suited to bedtime stories, family devotions, Sunday School, or homeschool. I use it for all of the above!
The illustrations are very well done. They are perfectly detailed to hold young childrens' interest, yet not too busy. The format of the book is large, so it is easily used for a group. Each story is approximately eight pages long and has its own style of drawing and font. The stories are told in child-friendly language, but unlike some childrens' Bible storybooks, they do not compromise the actual Biblical story.
Following each story are three pages of activities: prayers, songs (sung to the tune of familar childrens' songs), rhymes, crafts, snacks, games, finger plays, service projects, etc. The ideas are fresh and use inexpensive materials usually found around the house. For homeschoolers, the activities provide a variety of ways to incorporate other subjects into the lesson. The possibilities are exciting.
I can't imagine a more perfect book for teaching young children about God's Word. This is a great book.
