Jehovah’s Witness Congregation holding memorial for Jesus
by Vanessa Stark
The Chemung Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses will be holding a memorial for Jesus Christ’s death at the Kingdom Hall located at 1349 Buckhorn Road.
The congregation will be making its way into the community with this memorial service as they hand out invitations to everyone from all around to come and remember what Jesus Christ sacrified.
“It gives everyone (the community and people belonging to the congregation) a chance to reflect and know what Jesus Christ is about from the bible,” says Rachelle Skerratt with Anne Kyle, members of the congregation, about the memorial.
The service will be held on Tuesday, March 26 and will be discussing Jesus Christ and explaining the importance of his death. It will also try and answer some questions from the bible such as: who is Jesus Christ and why is it important to remember Him?
Last year’s service had 131 people in attendance, 84 of which belonged to the Kingdom Hall. There is usually an increase in people each year and it is expected again to increase for this year’s memorial.
“It’s up to the community to come, but we do increase the familiarity of what we do and what goes on by the invitations,” Cassandra Kyle, a young Jehovah’s Witness that will be handing out invitations and attending the memorial, says.
The congregation will be starting to hand out invitations for the memorial on March 1 in the community.
They will be starting with the most highly dense populations such as Peterborough, Bridgenorth and Lakefield and working their way out from there.
The Parishioners hope to spread the word about the service and the importance of why they hold the memorial and look forward to seeing many people there.
