We're glad you're here.
MDUMC is a vibrant, growing West Houston community of faith with over 7,000 members and ministries that impact the whole city and span the globe. We have two campuses to support our diverse ministries. Our Main Campus includes a sanctuary, fellowship hall, gym, Sunday School rooms, and administrative offices, just to name a few. Our West Campus houses our contemporary worship space, youth ministry facilities, arts academy, and adult programming space.
Our calling and mission is Jesus’ Great Commandment: to Love God and Love Neighbor. We practice these spiritual disciplines to deepen our faith and engage us in Christ’s ministry.

On the Main Campus
Children's worship packets are available in the Sanctuary entry and have crayons, coloring pages, activity sheets, and other 'busy but quiet' items.
Children's Time is offered at 11 AM in the middle of the worship service.
The Wiggle Room is a great option for babies or toddlers that may be disturbing others during the sermon. The room is right around the corner from the sanctuary and also shows the service on a large screen so no one misses the sermon. The room is also a 'Bride's room' for weddings but on Sunday mornings it is the Wiggle Room!
The Nursery is staffed with paid caregivers and you can take your child at any time during the worship hour.
The Journey Worship on The West Campus
Worship packs for kids are available in the back of the room.
Children's time happens at both 9:30 and 11 AM. After children's time, children are invited to attend JourneyKids behind the worship center. Parents- please sign kids in prior to worship.
Nurseries for infants and toddlers are staffed with paid caregivers for both hours of worship.
If your child is learning to attend worship, go over the behavior expectations before the service and keep them simple. Such as:
- Restroom before or after worship
- We all stand when everyone is standing
- We all stop what we are doing when someone is praying
- There will be others around us listening
- After worship, ask them one thing they noticed or heard.
