Mission and Community Outreach

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 again on Tuesday mornings starting April 4, 2023 at 9:30 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.

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.


Annual Diaper Drive: Helping Hands Outreach is collecting disposable diapers and diaper wipes for underprivileged families in our community.  Diaper donations can be placed in the large gray bin by the office and are due by May 7th

Helping Hands delivered 1,072 diapers and 33 packs of wipes to the Appo State Service Center thanks to your generosity!
