Staff report

DAYTON — Jehovah’s Witnesses will soon hold its annual regional conventions at the Ervin J. Nutter Center, Wright State University. They extend an open invitation for all to attend. The theme of this year’s program is “Remain Loyal to Jehovah!”

Starting this weekend, and continuing for the next six weeks, Jehovah’s Witnesses will extend personal invitations to everyone from Indianapolis, Indiana; Dayton, Ohio; Cincinnati, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; Lexington, Kentucky, and surrounding areas to attend the convention. All of the local congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses will be involved in hand delivering printed invitations to the convention.

The three-day program will feature 49 presentations, each exploring the theme “loyalty.” Additionally, the Witnesses have prepared 35 video segments specifically for the program plus two short films that will be shown on Saturday and Sunday. Each day, the morning and afternoon sessions will be introduced by music videos recorded for the convention.

David A. Semonian, a spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses at their world headquarters in Brooklyn, New York, states: “We strongly believe that loyalty is an essential part of any healthy relationship. Our convention this year features content that will help people develop stronger bonds with friends, family members and, above all, with God. We are confident that all who attend will enjoy this program.”

Jehovah’s Witnesses invite people of all ages to attend. The first of four three-day events to be held in Dayton, Ohio will begin Friday, June 17, 2016, at 9:20 am. There is no admission fee. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations. For more information about Jehovah’s Witnesses and the 2016 Conventions, visit:
