Jehovah’s Witnesses are inviting all in the area to attend a program focusing on a government that millions, perhaps billions, pray for. God’s Kingdom government, which is requested in the world-famous model prayer taught by Jesus Christ, will be the focus of the 2011 “Let God’s Kingdom Come!” District Convention to be held at Interior Savings Center, in Kamloops.
Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the request for God’s Kingdom in the model prayer, recorded in the Bible at Matthew 6:10 (also known as the Lord’s Prayer or the Our Father), has profound meaning. They also believe that the answer to that prayer will bring significant changes to the earth and mankind. The Witnesses’ convention program promises intriguing details from the Bible’s explanation of such developments.
The first of two three-day events to be held in Kamloops, will begin on Friday, July 8, at 9:20 a.m.
The daily themes are based on passages of Scripture. Strengthening one’s faith in the reality of that Kingdom will be the focus of the program.
There is no admission fee. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
Locally, all of the area’s seven congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses will be supporting the activity of distributing printed invitations to the convention. An estimated 6500 will come to Interior Savings Center over two succesive weekends for the Bible-based programs.
Throughout Canada, there will be 42 conventions in 22 locations. Worldwide, there are over 7,500,000 Witnesses in more than 107,000 congregations.
