Title: Jehovah's Witness conventions coming to town

 

Article: 

The Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses district conventions are coming to the Rochester Mayo Civic Center's Taylor Arena starting this weekend and over the next two months.

 

Jehovah's Witnesses will extend personal invitations to everyone in Minnesota, Northern Iowa and Western Wisconsin to attend these conventions. Locally, all of the Rochester areas' nine congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses will help spread awareness about the convention.

 

"We get so excited and it's fun to see our friends — we get to show hospitality to all those who come," said Laurie Schneider, a member of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Rochester.

 

With the convention being in Rochester, it's accessible for local Jehovah Witnesses.

 

"It makes it very easy for us. We also appreciate the city, that they are so welcoming and kind," said Schneider. "The Mayo Civic Center, restaurants and hotels cooperate with us."

 

The first of six three-day events to be held in Rochester began at 9:20 a.m. today. Five of the conventions will be in English and the Spanish convention will be held July 22-24.

 

The theme of this year's program is "Remain Loyal to Jehovah."

 

"The theme is about how we can remain loyal not only to God, but to family, friends and the community," said Rochester convention spokesperson Micah Argenio. "It's more so the benefits of displaying loyalty to others."

 

Their official website, jw.org, states "The three-day program will feature 49 presentations, each exploring the theme 'loyalty'. Additionally, there are 35 video segments specifically for the program plus two feature-length films that will be shown Saturday and Sunday."

 

An estimated 20,000 will come to the Mayo Civic Center Taylor Arena for the Bible-based programs. Jehovah's Witnesses throughout the United States are organizing more than 400 conventions in many languages.

 

There is no admission fee and no collection will be taken.
