The 2018 annual Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses will be held at the Governors Hall of the Statehouse Convention Center at Little Rock on June 1-3 and June 8-10.


Service times are Friday and Saturday from 9:20 a.m. until 4:50 p.m. and Sunday 9:20 a.m. until 3:50 p.m.


Prior to the meetings, Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world will participate in a global campaign to invite the general public to attend the program free, according to a news release.


“The three-day program consists of 54 presentations that will include talks, audio dramas, interviews, and short videos. Additionally, a feature film, entitled The Story of Jonah — A Lesson in Courage and Mercy, will be shown on the final day of the convention program. Each day, the morning and afternoon sessions will be introduced by music videos prepared specifically for the convention,” according to the release.


The theme of the annual convention series is “Be Courageous.”


“When you look at the news today, you can clearly see that people of all ages are dealing with more anxieties and fears than ever before,” said David A. Semonian, a spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “It takes courage to face these pressures. We welcome everyone to this year’s convention to benefit from the practical advice that’s contained in the Bible.”
