Magpunta ka is when you intentionally punta, while pumunta ka is when you just punta
Magpunta ka sa simbahan -> pay a visit to the church
Pumunta ka sa simbahan -> go to the church

Magpunta and Pumunta are actually a good example of where the mag and -um- usages don't differ too much. In the command form Magpunta ka na nga! and Pumunta ka na nga!they are virtually the same. To quote Ken Yamauchi from reddit and formerly the PH Langs discord.
 
> "For me, it's more on the hidden implication between the difference between the -um- verbs and mag- verbs.
 
Example: Nagbabasa-basa naman ako ng libro. (Sometimes, I am reading a book.)
 
Nagpupunta ka pa ba sa bahay ng lola-lolo mo? (Do you still go (to visit, or any purpose) to your grandparent's house? or much better, Do you still pay a visit to your grandparent's house (because before you had once used to)?)
 
Pumupunta ka ba sa bahay ng lola-lolo mo? (Do you go to your grandparent's house? (just a plain question))"
