The 2006 district convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses begins at 9:30 a.m. today at the Cleveland State University Convention Center.
The three-day convention is expected to attract about 15,000 delegates from the greater Cleveland area. This year’s theme is “Deliverance at Hand.”
Morning sessions begin at 9:30 each day, and afternoon sessions begin at 2 p.m. today and Saturday and 1:40 p.m. on Sunday. All sessions are free and open to the public.
Jehovah’s Witnesses are part of a worldwide religion that views first-century Christianity as its model. They actively share information about God, whom they call Jehovah, and about Jesus Christ. Their official journal is called The Watchtower.
