Missions

"Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me."

Matthew 25:40

Since its inception, DSPC has always found ways to be a part of God's mission! Whether we are feeding our neighbors, building homes, or caring for the vulnerable, we are living out our faith and proclaiming good news with our lives.

Prayers for Partners

At DSPC, we want to show up for our Mission Partners in every way--physically, financially, and spiritually. We believe in order to be faithful partners, we must be praying for these organizations and the people that comprise them. On a regular basis, we solicit specific prayer requests from our partners. Then, the Mission Team, along with a dedicated group of prayer warriors pray over these specific joys and concerns and lift them up to God.
Want to be a part of this Prayers for Partners mission team? Simply fill out the form below to begin receiving lists.
On June 6, 2021 DSPC turned the $3K of donated inventory into Summer Fun Bags for Street Youth Ministry. SYM serves street dependent youth and young adults up to age 28. The bags included fun items to help lift spirits such as drinks, chips, cookies, and treats. Items essential for battling the oppressive summer heat like sunscreen and insect repellent were also included. In total, we packed 360 bags that will be put in the hands of those who need them in downtown Austin during the summer months. Way to go, DSPC! The generosity of our community is inspiring!

"Home in a Month" in partnership
with Hometown Missions

DSPC has the opportunity to partner with Hometown Missions on a special project in 2021.
Hometown Mission’s big project for the year is to build a “home in a month” and the recipients of this new home will be Roy and Louisa Acosta. Louisa, better known as “LaLa”, has lovingly cared for all the babies who’ve passed through the DSPC nursery for many years. We are overjoyed to be able to return that love in this way.
The goal of this project is to make it a community-wide event with the city and several churches contributing resources and labor. We will have the opportunity to serve hands-on by pre-building different components of the home as construction begins in August and September.  
To contribute to the cost of this project, you may donate directly to the Mission Fund of DSPC or note "New Home" on your check. Stay tuned for more opportunities to participate!

DSPC Pancake Brunch for Missions

From the very beginning, DSPC has combined yummy breakfast foods with great fellowship one Sunday a month to support a particular cause outside of our walls. Over the years, we have raised money for non-profits, scouting projects, neighbors in need, and community outreach.
Covid-19 has put a temporary twist in how we do things...but stay tuned...pancakes will be back!

DSPC Partner Church in Mazatlan, Mexico

In 2020, DSPC formed a long term relationship with a Presbyterian Church in Mazatlan, Mexico. Our support allows them to provide support to children, youth, and families in their immediate community. During the past year,  they've created a youth orchestra for the youth of the church to counter the effects of the isolation experienced from the pandemic and to guard against the risk of drugs and other perils.  Additionally, Pastor Mauricio established a food pantry supplying families with needed food items. He also operates a prison ministry with his guitar and Biblia.
The cost of a single family food pantry deliver is $10. The cost to sponsor one child in the orchestra is $30/month. For more information about sponsorship donations, contact Amy.
