    You left out Family Study. If you have a family, you are expected to fit in a weekly study with them.

    Also, if you are lucky enough to have acquired a Bibly Study or two out of the thousands of hours of

    field service you do, those have to be fit in there somewhere, too.

    Sun. 9:30 - 11:30 -- Public Talk and WT study -Depends how many congos share the hall. If a 9.30 start would finish at 11.15 to allow for shorter PT (30minutes now)

    2:00 - 4:00 -- Field service - again varies. Many (if they have a 9.30 -11.15 PT/WT) will go out about 11.45 -2.00 pm on Field Service

    Mon. (after work) -- Study for your Tues. night book study, work on preparing any upcoming parts you many have been assigned. This is encouraged - Yes

    Tues. 8:00 - 9:00 -- Book study - Varies in many congos - 7.00 pm or 7.30 pm is a more normal start time

    Wed. (after work) -- Study for Thurs night meeting and work on parts assigned. This is encouraged yes - or evening field service

    Thurs. 7:30 - 9:30 -- Ministry School and Service Meeting - not quite - would finish at 9.15 pm - and has for many years. The start time may vary depending on congregation and hall being shared by other congos

    Sat. Morning -- Field Service, return visits. CORRECT

    Sat. evening -- Study for Sunday's WT lesson CORRECT

    So, does the Public Talk now start at 10:00am on Sunday instead of 9:30?

    Sorry, I'm just trying to get this straight.....and I DO have a reason.

    Thanks much!

    As far as I know the vast majority prefer to start at 10.00 am and finish at 11.45. However not all do and ESPECAILLY if there are three congos sharing a hall. Then they will start earlier to allow all congos to meet on a Sunday.

    When I was growing up in the tower we had the service meeting/ ministry school on Friday night.

    The Sunday talk was in the afternoon.

    And book study was on Tuesday.

    Service was Saturday and Sunday. And everyday for pioneers.

    to truly be following what the society teaches, to have a legit shot at surviving the big A, that is about 50% what a witness does in a given week.

    I can remember a schedule similar to that. Often we would rotate the Sunday boasting session--in alternating years, they would start at 12:30-2:30 PM (or 2:15, allowing for the shorter talk). Of course, that leaves the morning free for field circus--and they want people out in more field circus during the late afternoon.
