Recreation & Sports

We offer an expansive lineup of quality classes and activities (known here at MDPC as REACH Classes) which develop knowledge and skills for children, youth, and adults. There are three sessions offered each year: Fall, Spring, and Summer. All are welcome; you don't have to be a member of the church to participate!  Contact registrars Jan or Cathy at  or 713-490-9564.

Costs include processing fee. A non-refundable bank fee is added to all online registrations: A full refund, less $20 administrative fee, will be given if you cancel 3 or more days prior to first day of class/camp.
