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. 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.

The next luncheon will be Thursday, May 9. Join us as we enjoy lunch together at noon followed by music by Cathy Zang. Cathy has  worked on the Gateway Clipper Fleet and with Don Brockett Productions. She appeared on WPXI's local singing competition "Gimme the Mike" and also won the Pittsburgh's Idol competition on KDKA radio with Larry Richert. She will be singing a variety of oldies, standards, country, and beach/summertime songs! 

Registration and prepayment for this event must be made by Sunday, April 7. Click here to register!

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. Contact Pastor Karen Anderson for details at
