Local congregations will be gathering in St Charles this weekend

Jul 03, 2013 -- 6:00am


Local Jehovah’s Witnesses in Cape Girardeau, Scott County, Jackson, Perryville and others will join an estimated group of over 14,400 this weekend from Eastern Missouri and Southern Illinois at the St. Charles Family Arena in St. Charles, at the 2013 “God’s Word Is Truth!” District Convention.  Spokesperson Tom Kelsey tells KZIM-KSIM that the event is more than just worship time.  Kelsey is from Cape Girardeau, and says the convention offers members and guests a way to come back refreshed and recharged, and able to cope with all that we encounter in the world we live in.  Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations with no offerings ever being solicited.  Throughout the United States, there will be 385 conventions in 103 cities, with no admission fee.
