Mission Servants Activity of the Month
Making Clothing Protectors for Bethesda
The Bethesda Auxiliary needs help in sewing clothing protectors for the people they serve. The protectors are used for meals and snacks. In one state alone, 750 are used each year. By sewing protectors, you will provide a durable, money saving, fun and dignified item to help support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Have fun and be creative in your choices of fabric!

The talents of more than 3,400 Bethesda Auxiliary members create connections — in the church and in the community — that help the people Bethesda supports pursue their faith and lead independent lives. Bethesda Auxiliary supports Bethesda’s mission to enhance the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through services that share the good news of Jesus Christ. The Auxiliary has been serving people with disabilities for over 60 years.
The Auxiliary’s reach expands beyond the 13 states in which Bethesda (headquartered in Watertown, Wisconsin for over 112 years) provides services. Men, women and youth pray, raise money, volunteer and donate goods to the Bethesda Thrift Shops, lead Bible studies and devotions and craft items for the people Bethesda supports. Members engage people at conventions and pastoral conferences across the country. The Auxiliary continues to grow nationwide, providing service opportunities to people of all ages.
