First you need to make a group, if you haven't done so already. Open up the contacts app of your S4 and select the second tab to the left called Groups. Tap the menu button and select Create. Choose a name and add people all in the same window. You can also add contacts at a later point in time by going under the Groups tab again and choosing the group in question.
