Bite-sized SERVE-ings

Casa El Buen Samaritano

Casa El Buen Samaritano needs Medically Licensed Volunteers including MA, LVN, RN, NP, PA, DDS, and MDs. Casa provides credentialing and malpractice coverage for all licensed volunteers. Additionally, non-licensed volunteers are needed as ministry volunteers, patient interpreters, and for patient check-in/check-out.

Casa El Buen Samaritano is always in need of prayer volunteers who will:

  • Pray for those that come to Casa - spiritually hungry - that they may have open hearts ready to accept Christ as their Savior.
  • Pray for a Christ-centered transformed life for those who do accept Christ.
  • Pray that God continues to lead mission-minded volunteers to help serve patients. Pray for the leadership as they obediently seek His wisdom about the ongoing direction of the ministry.

Kids' Meals

In Houston, one in four preschool children go to bed hungry. You can make sure there is one less empty tummy! Kids' Meals is a community based organization which serves healthy lunches to preschool-aged children living in poverty. Nutritious meals are provided Monday through Friday year-round, free of cost to the families.

At MDPC, we meet the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 4:30 to 6:00pm in our Fellowship Hall with a goal of making 5,000 ham sandwiches. Each participant is asked to bring four loaves of white or wheat bread and a servant's heart. All are welcome, so come join the effort to end childhood hunger in Houston!

Registration is REQUIRED and opens on the 1st of each month.

2022 Kids' Meals Dates:
May 11, Jun 8, Aug 10, Sep 14, Oct 12, Nov 9, Dec 14
