Experience Worship & Music at MDPC! Whether as part of the audience, or part of the performance, opportunities abound for spiritual, musical, and relational growth. The joy of making music together provides experiences that bring us closer to God and to one another.
Greeters are always needed on Sunday mornings, Holiday services, and Choir Concerts.
The Lord’s Supper represents eating and drinking in communion with the crucified and risen Jesus. During His earthly ministry, Jesus shared meals with His followers as a sign of community and acceptance and as an occasion for His own ministry. The Church in the New Testament devoted itself to the sharing of the bread and cup as a remembrance of His life, death, and sacrifice on our behalf. In remembering, believers proclaim the power of Christ’s reign for the renewal of the world in justice and in peace.
On Communion Sundays, all who confess Jesus Christ as their Savior are welcome to participate. If you are an Elder or Deacon and are interested in serving Communion, contact Tracy Curtis-Stidam at .

MDPC baptizes newborn to adult congregants. In the Sacrament of Baptism, as with the Lord’s Supper, we believe what matters most is what God is doing to us and for us —not what we do, although our participation is important. We are at the receiving end of His activity. Currently, we can offer baptism through sprinkling or immersion. To learn more, click on the link below:
If you are interested in being baptized at MDPC, contact Evangelism Pastor Dan Aikins at or 713-490-9292.

Mercury Concert* -Bach Cello Suites Sat, Oct 29 at 2:30pm, Chapel
Eternal Ruler of the Ceaseless Roundby Will Todd Sun, Nov 13 | 11:15am, Sanctuary MDPC Sanctuary Choir and Organ Beginning in 2016, the MDPC Sanctuary Choir proposed commissioning a world-renown composer to write a choral and organ work to honor the long tenures of Organist Kathryn Sparks White and Sanctuary Choir Conductor Dr. Charles Hausmann. A committee was formed, and funds were collected. After an exhaustive search, the committee, which included White and Hausmann, selected British composer Will Todd to write a work to be used in worship and that would highlight the organ. The work is based on the hymn Eternal Ruler of the Ceaseless Round by John Chadwick, 1840-1904. The anthem can be sung as a continuous seven-minute piece or in four sections based on the four verses of the hymn text. Eternal Ruler was completed in 2020 but, due to Covid-19, the premiere and publication of the work were postponed. The committee thought it was appropriate to premiere the work on the 20th Anniversary of the Sanctuary Schantz Pipe Organ.
