This week’s look ahead has four items, including glance ahead teasers …
AUMC — Vacation Bible School
Avondale United Methodist Church Invites Families to Rome: Paul and the Underground Church
[Kansas City, MO] A summer family event called Rome: Paul and the Underground Church will be hosted at Avondale United Methodist Church. Families step back in time at Rome, exploring the life of the apostle Paul and the underground church. Kids and adults participate in a memorable Bible-times marketplace, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig in to Roman eats, visit Paul while he’s under house arrest, and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s Word. Each day concludes at Extollo—a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.
Kids and adults at Rome will join The Missouri United Methodist Conference in the “Water for Haiti” project—a project that provides water filters to families in Haiti. With this service opportunity, families’ donations will change the lives of other families across the globe by helping provide them with safe drinking water.
Rome will begin on Friday, June 23, with supper at 6:00 p.m. and conclude at 8:30. Saturday, June 24, 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sunday, June 25, 9:30-Noon. For more information, call 816-452-3518.
Please register both adults and children using forms located in the foyer or by calling the church office. We encourage parents and grandparents to accompany children as we learn about Paul’s Rome. All church members of any age are welcome to attend with or without children!

KCCC Tug of War
This week, the final week of the Kansas City Corporate Challenge, has been the swim meet, the penultimate competition, since Monday night. Tonight is the final event: freestyle — both 50 individual and 200 relay.
Saturday is the ultimate event — the tug-of-war. I might even be doing it again for my company this year, for the second time. We are still trying to put together our team. Event itself starts 7:30 a.m. Saturday at the Longview Lake Swim Beach.
