The Cleveland Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses is participating in the “Follow The Christ” district conventions as part of a global campaign.
The convention starts Friday, 9:20 a.m., in Duluth, Ga.
A concerted effort is being made to reach as many local residents as possible with the special invitation to attend the three-day assembly which thousands will attend.
The worldwide conventions will feature an audio drama Friday based on Mark chapters 4 and 5.
On Saturday, a talk highlighting the role of each individual in the family “Husbands, Wives, Parents, Children — Follow the Model!” will be given.
A six-part symposium on Sunday morning will feature Matthew chapters 5 through 7. The symposium will discuss the Sermon on the Mount.
On Sunday afternoon a full-costume Bible drama, with a cast of more than 25 characters, will be presented based on Colossians 3:12.
The convention will be held at The Arena at Gwinnett Center at 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth. Admission is free and no collections are taken.
