I3,000 PEOPLE expected this weekend.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses will be bringing a message of deliverance during their two conferences scheduled this month for Beban Park.
And they want people from all across Vancouver Island to join them, and hear that message.
More than 3,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses from Victoria to Port Hardy will converge on Nanaimo for the first of two district conventions at Frank Crane Arena June 9-11. Another 3,000 delegates are expected at the following convention June 23-25, also in Nanaimo.
“It’s the largest convention that comes to Nanaimo every year,” said spokesman Shanon Maurer.
The program will emphasize that mankind needs deliverance from the effects of inherited sin and its consequences. Talks and workshops will comfort people by emphasizing God’s love and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
The program includes a baptism ceremony on Saturday (June 10) and a Bible-based drama presentation on Sunday (June 11). The drama will showcase what is meant by loyalty to God.
Sunday will also feature a speaker who will discuss why there is a greater need now for deliverance and how God will provide salvation.
Jehovah’s Witnesses is a Christian religion that believes living by Bible principles brings people closer to God, promotes strong family ties and makes productive, honest citizens.
People who wish to hear what the group has to say can go to any session at either convention. The site is open to the public. No collection is ever taken.
Morning sessions begin at 9:30 a.m. and afternoon sessions at 2 p.m.
