SANTA CLARA, CA - Jehovah’s Witnesses feel that all, including non-Witnesses, will benefit from the positive message and practical suggestions that will be highlighted at the 2012 “Safeguard Your Heart!” Tagalog District Convention to be held at Santa Clara Convention Center located at 5001 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara, CA.
The Witnesses’ convention program promises a fresh examination of Biblical references to the figurative heart. Through lively discourses, dramatic Bible readings and presentations, and even a live play, program parts will emphasize how protecting the figurative heart will enhance one’s spiritual well-being, family life, and happiness.
Starting this weekend, and continuing for the next couple of weeks, Jehovah’s Witnesses will put forth extra effort to extend a personal invitation to Filipinos from the Bay Area, Reno, NV, Seattle, WA, Auburn, WA, Renton, WA, Marysville, WA, Portland, OR, and Anchorage, AK to attend the convention with them. The three-day event to be held in Santa Clara, CA will begin Friday, August 3, 2012, at 9:20 a.m. The daily themes and titles of program parts are based on passages of Scripture, including 1 Samuel 16:7, 1 Chronicles 28:9, and Matthew 12:34. The convention theme “Safeguard Your Heart!” is based on Proverbs 4:23. Strengthening one’s spirituality will be the focus of the program.
There is no admission fee. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
Locally, all of the area’s 17 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses will be supporting the activity of distributing printed invitations to the convention. An estimated 2,500 will come to Santa Clara Convention Center over the weekend for the Bible-based Tagalog programs.
Throughout the United States, there will be 385 conventions in 103 cities. Worldwide, there are over 7,600,000 Witnesses in more than 109,000 congregations.
