MCC Seniors

The MCC Seniors Program provides persons 55+ with a multi-purpose, culturally and ethnically sensitive, inter-generational program and services. We offer social, educational, recreational activities and outreach.

The program targets Montgomery County residents; however, we welcome all. Our members enjoy monthly trips, special events, stimulating lectures and activities, spiritual nurturing by our Imam Sh. Mohamed Abdullah, skills development, activities to help get or stay in shape, and delicious home cooked lunches that are lovingly prepared by members of our program and are served buffet style. Voluntary contributions from participants help support the program.

Our program is held on the second Saturday of every month, from 1:45 pm to 4:30 pm. Please subscribe to the MCC email list  to receive updates about the MCC Seniors Program activities. We are located at the Muslim Community Center, 15200 New Hampshire Avenue, Silver Spring, MD 20905.

Please join our program by submitting a registration form  by email to mccseniorprogram@gmail.com.  You can also visit us on Facebook.
