Support Groups

Adoption/Foster/Safe Families Monthly Support Group

Hershey Free Church has a vision to raise awareness of the needs of orphans, providing information about resources available to assist with adoption or providing orphan care and encouraging our congregation to respond. A partnership has been established with the ABBA Fund to provide financial assistance to those seeking to adopt. This ministry also offers monthly support meetings for families who are raising adopted children, fostering children, or participating in Bethany’s Safe Families program. For more information, write to Pastor Omar Zook or phone 533-2092, ext. 2010 or fill out our online form.

Surrendering the Secret

Abortion can be one of the most traumatic experiences in a woman’s life. Surrendering the Secret is a powerful 9-10 week study that helps hurting women find the path to healing through honest, interactive Bible study. With compassion, you will be encouraged and supported as you allow God into rooms of your heart that might have been sealed for too long. It’s time to let go of the shame, accept His forgiveness and heal. All you need is to be willing to accept His invitation. God wants to set you free!

Come to an informational session at the Hershey Free Church on Monday, March 13 @ 6:30 PM.
