Senior Ministries

Senior Ministries offer dynamic opportunities for senior adults. Whether you're seeking Bible study, entertainment, Christian fellowship, or volunteer opportunities, our Senior Ministries offers a true community of friendship, love, and lots of laughter! For more information on how to get involved, contact Rev. Dr. Karen Anderson, Pastor of Visitation & Senior Life.
Where can you have a delicious meal while enjoying fellowship with old and new friends followed by excellent entertainment… all for just $8 a person? From September through May we invite you to join us for 2nd Thursday Senior Community Luncheons (formerly Celebration of Life). Each luncheon is served at noon in Westminster Hall at MPC. After lunch, we enjoy the talents of many local musicians/vocalists, dancers, or speakers. Prepaid reservations are required by the Sunday before the program.

There will not be a January luncheon. Please re-visit this page at the end of January to register for the February 14 luncheon which will feature vocalist/guitarist Tom Lamb.

These ‘senior’ men meet every Friday morning in Fellowship Hall for a continental breakfast and Bible study (the study/lecture begins at 8:00). The discussion is facilitated by a teaching team of pastors and laymen and usually pertains to a timely topic. This group meets occasionally in the summer. Contact Dee Cuffman for assistance.
These singing senior men meet on a regular basis to share their love of singing in praise to the Lord. They participate in Sunday morning worship services and also visit area nursing homes and retirement communities with the Primetimers. Reading music is not a requirement, but is something that is taught.
This group of senior adults along with the pastors and other church members, visit several area nursing homes and retirement communities to lead a worship service for the residents. Volunteers of all ages, especially those with musical talents, are welcome to participate. Our schedule runs most Thursday afternoons from September through June and features a special musical program at Christmas time. This is a rewarding ministry that helps share the Word of God with others.
This group for widows and other women alone meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. in Westminster Hall for a bag lunch and an informative and/or entertaining program. Special trips and outside events are planned through the year. In addition, the ladies meet regularly for lunch, bridge and travel. Annual dues are $20. Contact Edie Haughton for more information.
We offer a Senior Ministries Bible Study class each fall (beginning in September) and Winter (beginning in January). Classes are offered as part of our Adult Class opportunities. For 2018 we are also offering a Summer Bible Study! For registration and additional details, visit our Adult Classes page.

2019 Senior Study

You fear you won’t make it through. We all do. We fear that the depression will never lift, the yelling will never stop, the pain will never leave. In the pits, surrounded by steep walls and aching reminders, we wonder: will this gray sky ever brighted? This load ever lighten? Beginning February 7, we will begin a study for seniors following Max Lucado's book, You'll Get Through This: Hope and Help for Turbulent Times. In this six-session, DVD based Bible study, pastor and New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance: “Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere.” Pastor Karen Anderson will lead the discussion each week as we meet on Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. in the Geneva Room. No registration required. We hope to see you there!
