I have previously reviewed the WordPress plugin PrayerEngine and SeriesEngine here on the site. GroupsEngine is from the same developers. This is a great solution for any church wanting to share their available small groups on their WordPress-based website.  At Cornerstone, we use ChurchTeams to do this, but Churchteams is a full-blown church management system.

It was an experiment to see if we could record a live Worship CD, and it turned out great.
