Scoopfuls of fun: Kansas City church celebrates 70 years

Members of the Swope Parkway Church of Christ in Kansas City, Mo., dish out bowls of ice cream during the congregation’s 70th Homecoming picnic June 3. The church of about 600 members packed the pews with visitors for its anniversary service. “I’ve been here for the whole thing. It’s amazing what God has done,” said Mamie L. Williams, who was baptized in 1936 and was part of the original church, launched by four families in a storefront at 18th and Euclid in Kansas City.
