What is Your Story?

 

Recently I spent some time visiting the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, LA.  As you enter, you are given a dog tag representing a veteran that you follow during your journey through the museum.  At various points you get to hear their story in their own words.  You can also hear the stories of many other servicemen and women throughout the war.  It made the entire experience much more personal and engaging.

Our Congregation would like to share the mission and ministry of Church Extension Fund with the Millennials in our new member classes.  Is it too early to have this conversation?
