Connect Groups

Women’s Connect

Our Women’s Ministries connect opportunities are designed to not only teach but also encourage and equip the women of our church to move out into their communities and make an impact for Christ. We want all women to know that they are a part of community of believers. We want to walk with you, challenge you and support you as God moves in your life and heart.

Tuesdays from 9:30 to 11:30 AM in the auditorium. Light refreshments and child care provided. The winter/spring session begins on January 16 and meets through April 24. We will be studying The Good and Beautiful Community by James Bryan Smith, which will help us to understand the connection between knowing God’s Word and practicing God’s Word. Our focus will be on the second part of the greatest commandment, to love your neighbor as yourself. You may purchase the book The Good and Beautiful Community for $15 on or buy it on your own.

Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 PM in room 10. The evening group is looking at a 10-week study by Nancy Guthrie, The Son of David: Seeing Jesus in the Historical Books.

Moms Connect

Moms Connect provides an environment for mothers of preschoolers to grow in their faith and be encouraged, challenged, and equipped as women, wives, and mothers in the name of Jesus Christ. It also gives opportunity for them to connect with other moms, share mothering ideas and suggestions, and be guided by mentor mothers’ wisdom and experience.

Moms Connect generally meets every 2nd and 4th Wednesday during the school year from 9:30 to 11:15 AM in the auditorium. For our regular meetings, limited childcare is available for a fee. Moms Connect currently has a waiting list. Contact Karen Stover at 717-460-5676 for information.


Precepts is an inductive Bible Study where members have the opportunity to fellowship and engage with one another while deepening their walk with Christ. Our first topic this fall is Knowing God’s Covenant. We meet Tuesdays from 9:30 to 11:30 AM in room 10.

Men’s Connect 

The purpose of Men’s Connect is to equip men to be Christ-centered leaders at home, work, church, and in their communities. We seek to provide ways for men to grow in their faith. We hope to encourage husbands, fathers, and sons as they walk their journey of faith.

Thursdays from 7 to 8:30 PM in Room 403.
Tuesdays from 6 to 7 AM (breakfast included) in Core Cafe.

Sunday Connect

We know that attending a new place can be intimidating, and it is our strong desire to help you form connections and relationships at Hershey Free. Our Sunday Adult Connect Groups are a great place to start. These groups meet every Sunday morning. It is a great way to begin to get to know a smaller group of people and study God’s Word together. They are based on life stages and average 20 to 50 people. The classes meet during the 9 and 10:30 AM services, so it is possible to attend a group and worship on Sunday morning.
