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 Century II Convention Hall, 225 West Douglas Avenue in Wichita.
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. Starting this weekend, and continuing for the next few weeks, Jehovah ‘s Witnesses will put forth extra effort to extend a personal invitation to everyone from our area to attend the convention with them. The first of two three-day events to be held in ‘Wichita will begin at 9:20 a.m. on Friday, June 17, in English. The Spanish speaking convention begins at 9:20 a.m. on July 1. The daily themes are based on passages of Scripture including Matthew 4:17, Matthew 6:33, and 2 Peter 1:11. 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 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses will be supporting the activity of distributing printed invitations to the convention. An estimated 9,000 will come to Century II Convention Hall over the two weekends for the Bible-based programs. Throughout the United States, there will be 381 conventions in 98 cities. Worldwide, there are over 7,500,000 Witnesses in more than 107,000 congregations.
