Electronic Check-In on Sundays
The safety and security of our children is our top priority; therefore, all children birth through fifth grade are checked in electronically, which will generate two name tags, one for the child, and one for the parent. This name tag must be presented by the parent when picking up their child, where it will be matched to the child’s tag. Check-in stations are conveniently located in the Nursery, Preschool, and Elementary areas.
After check-in, elementary age children meet on the second floor of the main building. Children in first through fifth head straight into The Zone for games and fellowship; Kindergarten goes directly to Room 209. The kids are brought into The Galaxy for large group worship, and are then dismissed to their small group rooms, where they may be picked up. We encourage families to worship together for one hour and attend Sunday School at the other hour.

La seguridad de nuestros niños es nuestra máxima prioridad; por lo tanto, todo niño desde bebé hasta el quinto grado tienen que inscribirlo en forma electrónica, esto generará dos etiquetas, una para el niño y otra para los padres. Esta etiqueta debe ser presentada por los padres al recoger a su hijo, donde será cotejada con la etiqueta del niño. Las estaciones de inscripción están convenientemente ubicadas en las áreas de guardería, preescolar y primaria.
Después de inscribirlos, los niños de escuela primaria se reúnen en el segundo piso del edificio principal. Los niños de primero a quinto grado deben ir a “La Zone” zona de juegos y compañerismo; los niños en kindergarten van directamente a la habitación 209. Los niños son traídos a la “Galaxia” para el culto de todos los niños y luego se retiran a sus respectivos salones donde tienen grupos pequeños, donde pueden buscar al final del servicio de adoración de adultos. Nosotros animamos a las familias a adorar juntos durante una hora y asistir a la escuela dominical en la otra hora.

A Brief History

In 2007, MDPC planted a church in the Spring Branch area, Iglesia Fuente de Esperanza, and called Pastor Mauricio Chacón to lead the budding faith community. Pastor Chacón quickly set up worship and ministry to a group of Hispanic families that met in his own living room. After outgrowing that space, MDPC helped the new congregation lease a church building on Hammerly in Spring Branch. At that same time, Iglesia Fuente began a food pantry outreach to the local community. Volunteers from Fuente and MDPC worked side-by-side to distribute food from the Houston Food Bank to over 300 clients each month.

In 2011, Fuente moved its operations to the MDPC campus, becoming MDPC Fuente Hispanic Ministries. By situating themselves in a strategic central location, the ministry and its food pantry could jointly serve communities both north of I-10 and south of Westheimer.

In 2018, the Brazilian Presbyterian Church of Houston began meeting at MDPC as a separate church and congregation. In January 2019, we were blessed to welcome BPC into the MDPC family! Hispanic Ministries became MDPC Multi-cultural Ministries as the new congregation officially joined MDPC membership and, like Fuente before them, Pastor Almir Dantas Dias became an MDPC associate pastor.

We are thankful to God for increasingly collaborative ministry, for MDPC more fully reflecting the diversity of Houston, and for the ongoing energy poured into expanding Christ’s Kingdom to all people!
