In the United States of America the Jehovah’s Witness religion was recently in the news when Prince, the superstar musician, died. Not only was he a follower of the denomination; so was the late Michael Jackson. Dwight D. Eisenhower’s mother, Ida, was also a believer.

According to the Pew Research Center’s Religious Landscape Study currently, Jehovah’s Witnesses make up just less than 1 percent of U.S. adults. According to that research ninety-four percent of the Jehovah’s Witnesses believe the Bible is the word of God. They are religiously committed, according to the study. About 90 percent surveyed say religion is very important in their lives, and they believe in God with absolute certainty.

As serious Bible-students they know the orders given in that Book of books and really make work of the task given by the master teacher of what was to become Christianity.

The East Hutchinson congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses is going from door to door now not to get more voters to one or the other national party but to ask people to come to the Regional Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Oklahoma City, which takes place from August 26 through 28, in Oklahoma City.

The convention will bring together 43 congregations in Kansas and Oklahoma to the Jim Norick Arena, State Fair Park, 333 Gordon Cooper Blvd., in Oklahoma City. The program begins at 9:20 a.m. each day and ends at 4:50 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 3:45 p.m. on Sunday. All sessions are open to the public. Admission is free and no collection will be taken.

The goal of the door-to-door campaign is to place a personal invitation at every home. Members ranging from an 8-year-old to a 90-year-old will team up to reach out to the public. Generally, people are polite and respectful, Forton said, regardless of their views. Plus, they might knock at a door at just the right moment.

“We feel if one person comes to Oklahoma City it will be worth it,”

said Ed Forton who grew up in the faith and married a woman who is also a member of the congregation.

The theme of the convention is “Remain Loyal to Jehovah!” and will feature talks, videos and real-life experiences of how Christians can maintain their loyalty to God.
