Jehovah’s Witnesses convention is virtual
For more than 20 years, Jehovah’s Witnesses on Maui, Lanai, and Molokai have gathered at Maui Arts and Cultural Center for their annual convention. Due to health and safety restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic, this year the convention is virtual to allow congregations to view the program from their homes. The theme is, “Always Rejoice!”
The program is being released in six installments. The first convention session took place July 11-12. The final weekend of the virtual event is scheduled for Aug. 29-30.
Those interested in viewing the convention can contact their local congregation or access the program on jw.org, available under the “Library” tab. There is no charge for viewing the convention.
