Preconvention Release July 27, 2012
Jehovah’s Witnesses invite all to attend
“Safeguard Your Heart!” Convention
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS—Jehovah’s Witnesses feel that all, including non-Witnesses, will benefit from the positive message and practical suggestions that will be highlighted at the 2012 “Safeguard Your Heart!” District Convention to be held at the AmericanBank Center Arena in Corpus Christi, Texas.
The Witnesses’ convention program promises a fresh examination of Biblical references to the figurative heart. Through lively discourses, dramatic Bible readings and presentations, and even a live play, program parts will emphasize how protecting the figurative heart will enhance one’s spiritual well-being, family life, and happiness.
Starting this weekend, and continuing for the next three weeks, Jehovah’s Witnesses will put forth extra effort to extend a personal invitation to everyone from Aransas Pass, Beeville, Cuero, Corpus Christi, Floresville, Mathis, Pleasanton, Portland, Port Lavaca, Poteet, San Antonio, Three Rivers, Victoria and Woodsboro, Texas to attend the convention with them. The Convention to be held in Corpus Christi will begin Friday, August 17, 2012, at 9:20 a.m. The daily themes and titles of program parts are based on passages of Scripture, including 1 Samuel 16:7, 1 Chronicles 28:9, and Matthew 12:34. The convention theme “Safeguard Your Heart!” is based on Proverbs 4:23. Strengthening one’s spirituality 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. Between August 17-19, 2012 an estimated 3,900 will come each day to the AmericanBank Center Arena for the Bible-based program.
Throughout the United States, there will be 385 conventions in 103 cities. Worldwide, there are over 7,600,000 Witnesses in more than 109,000 congregations.
