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.

Join us for a special edition of 2nd Thursday… to be held on a Wednesday! We will join with the Sealarks to enjoy a concert by the River City Brass Trio on Wednesday, December 9 at 1 PM in the MPC sanctuary. (This event will be entertainment only – lunch will not be served.)

 COVID-19 protocols will be observed, and masks will be required at all times once you enter the church.

 Register for this event by December 2 so that we can arrange safe seating in the sanctuary. Please click here to register…https://memorialparkchurch.ccbchurch.com/goto/forms/929/responses/new

 As a special Christmas service project, we will be supporting North Hills Community Outreach at this event. If you are able, please bring a paper product or non-perishable food item, or you can bring a monetary donation by check made payable to North Hills Community Outreach. Donations from those not attending the concert are also welcome.

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.

Karen Anderson will be teaching a Senior Bible Study on Thursdays at 10AM starting on September 24. This 7-week study will be conducted via Zoom. The study will center on the Parables of Jesus based on a study by R.C. Sproul. Please contact Dee Cuffman at 412-364-9492, x 128 or dcuffman@mpcepc.org to receive the zoom invitation.
