Young Adult Groups

Beyond (High School)

We are excited to launch a Connect Group for any young adults age 18-22 who are in college or starting a career. What does it look like to take the next step after High School? How do you navigate the many decisions that come with adulthood? How does the gospel intersect with your everyday life? It’s important to be connected to people going through the same things you are and to get advice from others who have already been there. Join us on Sundays as we figure out how the Bible applies to our everyday lives and on Tuesdays evenings as we discuss the issues that are important to us during this season of life.


Sign up for updates by texting Beyond to 717-537-9172.

The Branch

THE BRANCH is a Connect group for young adult professionals ages 23 and up, both single and married. Our vision is to develop a ministry that includes, but also extends beyond a Sunday morning Connect class. Our mission is to be a community that provides a place of belonging where people are encouraged and equipped to abide in Christ and live out his love. The Branch's name and mission are rooted in John 15:5 - "I am the Vine; you are the branches. If you remain in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing." What can you expect when you come to The Branch? Spiritual development, lots of fun, and service opportunities - all within the context of community. It is a great joy of ours to welcome new people and help them to connect within the group. We love to hear when people change what they say from, "I go to The Branch," to, "I am part of The Branch!"

Sundays | 10:30 AM | Room 302

For the month of August, we will be starting a new series on Louie Giglio's book, Don't Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table, taught by Ray Bennett.

Upcoming Events

Branch Out Together | August 12 | 6:30 PM | under the tent

Branching Out Together is an inter-church worship and fellowship night on August 12 at 6:30 PM under the tent. In a time where deconstruction is so prevalent, especially among young adults, and coming out of a pandemic where many felt very isolated, we want to host a community event to reconnect and encourage one another. We are excited to connect members of The Branch at Hershey Free with other Christians in the area in a similar life stage and to come together in fellowship to worship, enjoy some food and games, and connect. Please sign up for Branch Out Together so we know to expect you.
