Mission and community outreach are two very important areas at the heart of our congregation. If you’re looking for a project with a good cause that will make a difference in your world, or even just in your neighborhood, become involved at Bethesda!

The Ugly Quilts group meets in the winter on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 am. The group compiles fabric, reading materials, and winter weather accessories and then creates warm care packages to help the homeless in the winter. No sewing experience necessary! Please call 378-2313 for more info.

We are in the process of creating a Weight Watchers group that would meet on a weekly basis at BUMC. If you are interested in more info, please send us an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the church office at 378-2313

Bethesda’s congregation collects non-perishable food items to stock the shelves of the food pantry located at the Neighborhood House in Middletown. To contribute to the collection, simply bring a non-perishable food item to church with you on Sunday morning and place it in the Helping Hands tub, located next to the door of our preschool Sunday school classroom.

Our Helping Hands Committee frequently participates in mission projects that benefit our community on both local and global levels. Information on how you can help is published in our Sunday bulletin on a weekly basis.
