The local congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses has begun extending a special invitation to attend this year’s three-day convention presented by Jehovah’s Witnesses. The theme is “God’s Word Is Truth!” based on Jesus’ words at John 17:17. These conventions began in the United States in May, and will continue worldwide through the end of December.
The convention theme is significant because Witness families embrace the Bible as the most trustworthy guide and source of advice in these troubled times. Personal Bible study is a priority for Jehovah’s Witnesses. Each week Witness families devote an evening to Bible study and research, which they call “Family Worship.” The convention series this year will provide families and individuals with fresh new resources for family and personal Bible study. The convention program will center on the subject of truth, where you can find it, and how it can benefit individuals and families.
“We feel that the public will benefit from and enjoy the varied and practical program,” stated John Harris, spokesman for the Witnesses.
Two dramatic plays will also bring Bible stories to life. On Sunday, the intriguing talk entitled “What Is Truth?” will examine why we can trust God’s Word, the Bible. There will be two conventions at Century II Convention Center, 225 West Douglas Avenue, Wichita. The first will be in Spanish, and begins at 9:20 a.m. each day starting Friday, June 21, 2013 through Sunday, June 23. The second convention, in English, begins at 9:20 a.m. each day, starting on Friday, July 5 through Sunday, July 7, 2013. An estimated 8,000 will be in attendance for these two Bible based convention programs. There is no charge for admission, and no collection will be taken.
