Jehovah's Witnesses are gathering in Saginaw for their annual faith-based district convention. About 15,000 believers will worship at the Dow Event Center, for an event that features music, dramas, talks and baptisms.
This year's theme is "Let God's Kingdom Come."
Held over three weekends, the convention will pump $3 million into the local economy for lodging, food and related services.
There are 7.3-million Jehovah's Witnesses worldwide, in 107,000 congregations.
This is the fourth time they have held their convention in Saginaw.
