‘Blessing Jehovah Among the Congregated Throngs’
EVEN as King David of old delighted in blessing Jehovah among the congregated throngs of true worshipers (Ps. 26:12), so there will be opportunity to voice appreciation of the Creator at this year’s “Disciple-making” District Assemblies of Jehovah’s witnesses. Have you begun to make your plans to attend?
The wide choice of locations and dates this year should make it convenient for all who love God’s Word to benefit from the faith-building provisions of the assembly program. There will be counsel and help for young and old in the form of constructive discourses, demonstrations and Biblical dramas. After last year’s assemblies the remark was frequently heard: “I am so glad I brought the whole family!” Do your plans include the entire family?
Outstanding on the program at all assemblies will be the timely public lecture on the subject “Rescuing a Great Crowd of Mankind Out of Armageddon.”
Assembly locations for all of the United States, Canada, Bermuda and the British Isles are listed below. Five weeks before the assembly of your choice is due to begin you may write Watch Tower Convention at the rooming address given for that city, and arrangements for your accommodation will be made.
