Social Justice Team


We celebrate human diversity and affirm God’s gifts of love and grace for ALL persons. Each of us is created in the image of God and is a child of God. We invite you, no matter your age, race, ethnicity, family structure, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental or physical ability, or economic situation, to be in ministry with us. We support the full participation of all persons in every phase of church life.  We believe that at First Hershey UMC you will experience our God who already knows you by name, loves you, and yearns to have an even closer relationship with you. As an affirming committee and pastor of the church, our hearts, minds and doors are open, and we are blessed by your presence.

Back to School Pride in the Park Picnic

On Saturday August 20th, the Alliance of Affirming Churches of Hershey & Hummelstown will be hosting a picnic for the LGBTQIA+ community and their families at Gelder Park 2250 Gelder Park Dr, Hummelstown, PA 17036 from 11am-3pm. It will be a time to draw the community together in a safe place, to hear some music, eat some food, play some games, and hopefully encourage one another as this can be a stressful time preparing to go to school.
