Today’s world will challenge your kids’ faith. DO you know what to do about it?

It’s no secret that children of all ages are being exposed to negative criticism of Christianity as they spend time at school, with friends, or online. Research shows that at least 60%of kids eventually reject their faith as young adults.

But there’s a lot you can do as a parent to spiritually prepare your kids for what they’ll encounter.

Chiefs Watch Party ~ Tailgate in Style at Ascension

Chiefs Watch Parties will be held during Chiefs Sunday games, currently in the Adult Bible Study Room, I mean the "Chiefs Rally Room" just off the church entrance. (Follow the noise)

Let's "Tailgate" in style, Show Team Spirit with our congregational family while watching the game on Ascension's new 75-inch flatscreen TV. Come and see it!

Some refreshments and snacks will be provided. Please feel free to bring a dish or snack to share. The NEW Ascension Bar-B-Que grill will be available to grill dogs or burgers so bring them.

Seating may be limited for now so bring your favorite folding lawn chair. If we "outgrow" this location (and I hope we do) we will relocate to the Fellowship Hall.

RSVP's requested for planning purposes only, not required but appreciated. RSVP to or text at 816-832-6099 Chiefs Watch Parties sponsored by the Ascension Outreach Committee.

In partnership with Girl Scout Troop 40, Ascension is hosting Trunk-or-Treat again this year on Halloween, Tuesday, October 31, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. This is a safe, family friendly environment for kids of all ages. We are looking for hosts to decorate car trunks and pass out candy. We have up to 45 spaces in the parking lot. E-mail if you are interested.

This year, we are encouraging our guests to vote for the trunk they like the most, so there may be a prize at the end of the night. Also, the stores already have the candy on display, but the price has really gone up. We’re starting to collect early to ensure that we have plenty. Look for the leaky cauldron in the Narthex.
