Starting this weekend and continuing for the next three weeks, Jehovah’s Witnesses will extend a personal invitation to everyone on Kaua‘i, to attend their annual convention.
Jesus Christ’s life, ministry, and future activities will be the focus of this year’s three-day event. Witnesses hope residents “will come along with them to attend the 2007 ‘Follow the Christ!’ District Convention,” which will be at 9:30 a.m., July 20 at the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall.
Admission to the convention is free, and no collections will be taken.
Those who participate “will be able to say truthfully that Jehovah’s Witnesses do believe in Jesus Christ. That is because the Witnesses are launching a vigorous campaign to invite all to see how vital Jesus Christ is to the life of each Witness. … and every resident on Kaua‘i.
“Our goal is to extend a personal invitation to as many people as possible. The effort is very similar to what we did last year when we invited people to attend our ‘Deliverance at Hand!’ District Convention. That distribution met with great success, contributing to a sizable increase in convention attendance worldwide compared with that of the previous year.”
Locally, the area’s eight Witness congregations will be giving support to this united global advertising activity for convention programs that will be held over the course of the next few months in over “150 lands.”
The Witnesses hope for an even greater attendance this year since the program will be devoted to examining what the “Bible really teaches about Jesus and what scriptural basis there is for determining who are true Christians today,” according to the Church.
There are close to 100,000 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses throughout the world.
“We hope everyone will accept our invitation to come to ‘Follow the Christ!’ We are confident that all in attendance will benefit from being there.”
