We welcome anyone age 18-22 to join us as we gather for a safe place to do life together and transition from high school to college/the workforce. We talk about relationships and friendships; school and careers; politics and science; injustice and brokenness; struggles, fears, doubts, joys, passions, gifts...and figure out together how all of the above fits in with following Jesus and bringing the Kingdom come on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Throughout the school year, we meet on Zoom monthly for personal check-in and learning a spiritual practice together. During the summer, we meet bi-weekly on Wednesday evenings at congregants' homes for dinner and Bible study. To support and connect with students as a congregation during the school year, we have an "Adopt" A College Student program.
Check out this announcement video for ways to connect with Jesus and our church during the 2020-2021 school year.
Young Adult Life Group (23-30)
Meet other young adults in the Hershey area for community, Bible study, discussion, game nights, and prayer as we navigate the challenges of emerging adulthood as followers of Jesus. This is a space for young adults to grow in their faith and friendship with each other through the highs and lows of life. As a group we've also committed to being open and welcoming of those who are not accustomed to church or active participants at a local church. You do not have to be a member of FUMC Hershey to gather with us.
We meet bi-weekly on Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:30pm. When the weather permits us to meet outside, we gather @ Founders Park (570 Homestead Road, Hershey PA). Otherwise, we're meeting in the church Social Hall during the pandemic.
If you have any questions or if you're interested in getting involved with one of these programs within our ministry, please contact Stephen Haverstick.
