An estimated 15,600 people will go to the NW Georgia Trade & Convention Center Arena at 2211 Dug Gap Battle Road in Dalton, this year, over the course of six extended weekends in both the English and Spanish languages. There is one more weekend to take advantage of this event.
The theme of this year's program is 'God's Word Is Truth!' It is highlighted by an intriguing talk on Sunday at 11 a.m. entitled "What Is Truth?” It examines the reasons why we can trust God's Word, the Bible. The two dramatic plays will be presented on Friday at 3:20 p.m. and Sunday at 1:25 p.m.
Admission is free, and no collection will be taken. Everyone is warmly invited to attend this year's three-day convention presented by Jehovah's Witnesses on this final weekend.
