Jehovah’s Witnesses invite all to attend “God’s Word Is Truth!” Convention

CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS—Jehovah’s Witnesses are confident that all, including non-Witnesses, will thoroughly enjoy the fresh and positive message that will be highlighted at the 2013 “God’s Word Is Truth!” District Convention to be held at the AmericanBank Center Arena in Corpus Christi, Texas.

The Witnesses’ convention theme “God’s Word Is Truth!” is significant because as one embraces the Bible it has proved to be the most trustworthy guide and source of advice in trouble times. The convention’s Bible based program promises that all in attendance will benefit from the practical advice it will give and the positive message will help a person to rely on it in their everyday life.

Weeks before the convention, Jehovah’s Witnesses will put forth extra effort to extend a personal invitation to everyone from Aransas Pass, Carrizo Springs, Corpus Christi, Del Rio, Devine,  Eagle Pass, Hondo, Portland, San Antonio, Uvalde, Woodsboro and Victoria, Texas to attend the convention with them. The second and last of the two three-day events to be held in Corpus Christi will begin Friday, August 30-September 1, 2013, at 9:20 a.m. The daily themes and titles of program parts are based on passages of Scripture, including John 8:32, Psalms 86:11 and 2 Peter 1:12.

Program highlights include: Friday, 9:40am Chairman’s Address: “How We Know God’s Word is Truth,” 3:30pm A Live Dramatic Play: “Show Yourself Attentive to the Wonderful Works of God.” Saturday, 9:40am Symposium: “Reject What Is False!” 11:40am Baptism “Continue Walking in the Truth.” Sunday, 11:10am Public Bible Discourse: “What Is Truth?” and at 1:40pm A Second Live Dramatic Play: “Prepare Your Heart for the Trials Ahead” (Esther).

There is no admission fee. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.

Locally, all of the area’s congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses will be supporting the activity of distributing printed invitations to the convention. An estimated 3,900 will come each day to the AmericanBank Center Arena for the last English Program, starting Friday, August 30-September 1, 2013 for the Bible-based program.
