“Divine Sovereignty” District Assemblies
THIS is a time of year when readers of The Watchtower begin to make plans to attend one of the annual district assemblies of Jehovah’s witnesses. The Watch Tower Society is pleased to announce that arrangements are being made for such assemblies in the northern hemisphere for June, July and August. Thereafter, if it be the Lord’s will, they will be held in other lands around the earth.
“Divine Sovereignty” is the assembly theme—and a most appropriate one, in view of the fact that it is this issue that urgently confronts all intelligent creatures.
The assemblies are four days long. The daily program will usually run from about 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then from 3:00 to about 5:30 p.m. Arrangements are being made for a baptismal program at each assembly, in most cases on Friday morning. Unless otherwise indicated, the full program at the assemblies listed here will be in English.
So that you can select an assembly convenient to you, the assembly dates and cities are listed below. We warmly invite you to attend for the full four days.
