Jehovah’s Witnesses convention

Jehovah’s Witnesses will discuss the keys to family happiness during their 2015 “Imitate Jesus!” Convention to be held at the Sacramento Convention Center this weekend.

The Witnesses’ three-day convention series will demonstrate how Jesus’ example can give parents and children the tools to build stronger and more united families. The program will also include a stimulating examination of Jesus’ famed Sermon on the Mount. William Laffoday, a spokesman for the convention program, said, “Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount offers timeless advice that can help parents to better use their time and resources to build a more secure and loving family environment.”

Jehovah’s Witnesses invite people of all ages to attend. The first day of the convention is today. Sessions begin at 9:20 a.m. on all three days of the convention. Admission is free. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
