**Announcement October 28, 2020 FOR CONGREGATIONS**
1. [Read after the Watchtower Study the week of October 26, 2020.\] 2021 Regional Convention: Many have expressed great appreciation for the special arrangement to benefit from the 2020 regional convention during this coronavirus pandemic. Because of the uncertainty of holding large gatherings in 2021 and the evidence of Jehovah’s blessing on this year’s convention program, the Governing Body recently approved the following arrangements for the 2021 regional convention program.
2. Similar to this year’s convention, the program will be prerecorded and will feature Governing Body members and their helpers who host JW Broadcasting monthly programs. It will be translated into some 500 languages and posted on JW Broadcasting during the months of July and August. Most brothers and sisters will enjoy the program in private homes. If local conditions permit and approval is given, some may have an opportunity to view the sessions together in person at Kingdom Halls or Assembly Halls.
3. We are confident that this simultaneous convention program from world headquarters will further unify the entire brotherhood and strengthen our faith, helping us to endure challenging circumstances. Fittingly, the theme for the convention program is “Powerful by Faith!” We express our thanks to Jehovah for these timely spiritual provisions and pray for his continued guidance deep in this time of the end.
