Jehovah’s Witnesses expect about 3,500 people will attend their convention in Macon this weekend, convention spokesman Troy Tirrell said.

The convention, which is free and open to the public, draws people from 28 congregations in south and Middle Georgia, Tirrell said.

The theme of this year’s convention is “God’s Word is Truth” and will include a talk on the topic of “What is truth?” at 11:10 a.m. Sunday, he said. Other events include two dramatic plays based on scenes and teachings from the Book of Esther at 3:30 p.m. Friday and 1:40 p.m. Sunday. There also will be a baptism Saturday at 11:40 a.m.

The convention is being held Friday and Saturday 9:20 a.m. to 4:55 p.m. and Sunday 9:20 a.m. to 3:50 p.m. at the Macon Coliseum, 240 Coliseum Drive. The convention also is hosting a variety of talks.

Tirrell said the convention’s goal is to bring people together in appreciation of God’s word.
