Mountain Messen Church Salute Lewisburg officials of the Watch- tower Bible and Tract Society have said plans for a series of 142 district conventions of Jehovah's Witnesses in the United States have been made for this summer. Spokesman James H. Copland said 59 separate facilities would be used to accommodate more than one million delegates expected for the four-day district convention meetings throughout the country. Mr Copland said the convention program will be presented in nine languages. In addition to English they include Spanish, Chinese, French, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Portuguese. Hope Lutheran Church, located on Routes 39 and 92 at Min- the Springs, was established in 1876 by the family of Henry The congregation met in homes until 1893, when the present building was constructed. Reverend J. F. A. Lautenschlager first Reverend Neal Weltzin took over the pastorate of ly 15. Mr Copland said 1,500 delegates will represent 21 congregations from Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia at the convention scheduled July 19-22 at the Civic Center Coliseum in Roanoke, Virginia. Mr Copland said language has been a divisive factor in human rela- tions for centuries. "Language is only one of the reasons for divisions among men, however," he said. "Others are nationality, race, educa- tion and social status. But Jehovah's Witnesses are working internation- ally to overcome all these divisive factors and become truly united." "Last summer we saw a more striking display of this unity in the cities of Chorzow, Poznan, and Warsaw in Poland. Witnesses speaking at least 20 different lan- guages were present from 37 lands. Yet, a striking oneness was manifest by all of the over 160,000 who at- tended," he said. "By means of talks, demonstra- tions, symposiums and dramas, lhe theme of international unity will be emphasized," Mr Copland said.

Of Holy Land' Ronceverte PreSbyterian Church joined a growing Vacation Bible School trend June 11-15 as it con- ducted its first "Tour of the Holy Land." According to co-chairman Pam Arnold, 23 adults helped in the week's emphasis on the traditions and culture of Jesus' day in Israel. Thirty children, aged three through eleven, attended and were divided into four groups. Groups visited a different "town" each evening and experienced a variety of "hands-on" opportunities to become acquainted with foods, crafts, worship, and other traditions of Biblical times. Represented were Bethany, where children learned about every- day procedures in the Jewish home; Nazareth, where they worked in car- pentry; Jerusalem, where musical instruments, cloth, and foods were studied; and Capernaum, where children were involved in Jewish worship traditions. Junior and senior high school students served as assistant tour guides and helped adults in a vari- ety of ways. Mary Burdette and Pam Baker joined Ms Arnold as co-chair- men of the Vacation Bible School Committee. "It went very well," Ms Arnold said. "The children thoroughly en- joyed the week, and the adults en- joyed it just as much. One thing I really liked about it is that it involved a large number of our adults--and that's something you don't often see in Vacation Bible School. It gave our children an opportunity to get to know them in a way that's not often possible. It was a wonderful 'inter- geherational experience.'" The week's activities concluded with a& open house June 22. Mini- tours of the four towns were pro- vided for visiting parents.
