Senior Adults

MDPC has a vibrant ministry of fun, fellowship, spiritual development, and educational opportunities for all of our seniors. Whether you’re a retiree, single, married, still working, a member of MDPC or not, we welcome you to journey with us.

The Venturers

All folks 50+ are welcome to gatherings of The Venturers at MDPC. The Venturers at MDPC is a group of people, either single or married, who meet each month for fellowship, dinner, and an informative and enriching program.

Our programs normally are on the 1st Monday of the month, Sep-May, at Fratelli's Ristorante (Wirt & Westview). Details and exceptions can be found in the Venturers brochure at the link below. 

Annual dues are $15/person or $25/couple (September–May). Paid members receive the monthly newsletter by mail plus a Venturers directory. You may join at a meeting or by mail (click here for a Membership form) or contact Connie Whelchel at or 713-785-7701.

Prime Timers

Prime Timers is a group of men and women, age 55 years or better, who meet monthly for fellowship, outings, and lunches. Each summer, we sponsor the showing of popular films for the whole congregation—admission, popcorn, and lemonade are all free of charge.

Monthly lunches and outings are planned for (normally) the third Tuesday of the month. Check out the latest Senior Adult Newsletter (April 2022, May 2022) for details!

Annual membership fee of only $10 is designed to defray the cost of programs. Paid members will receive a monthly newsletter and preference in trip reservations.

For more information about Prime Timers, contact Tammy Allyn (President) at   or 832-816-6254.


ENCORE FELLOWSHIP is an MDPC group for adults of any age or marital status. Join us for various social events out and about in Houston, where participants may enjoy the fellowship of other members. Contact Betsy at   for more information.
