Hershey Free has an annual tradition of doing a church-wide study, including students, to start the new year. Love This Book, Part 4, is an opportunity to study the writings of Paul with a renewed understanding of what it means to be “in Christ” and how that knowledge changes everything about us. This study includes a 90-page weekly devotional guide. These guides will be available to pick up in the main lobby. To offset the costs of the devotional guide, we are asking for a suggested non-tax deductible donation of $5. We want every individual to join us in this study of the writings of Paul, so please pick up a book whether you can donate or not.
You can give cash in-person or donate online.
