TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Thousands gather in Terre Haute to celebrate their faith.

It’s called the Circuit Assembly. It’s a gathering of about 2100 Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The assembly took place in the Hulman Center on Sunday.

An event of this size takes place twice a year. It draws believers from about a 75 mile radius.

The theme of this year’s event is “Increase your faith in Jehovah”.

“It’s a good way to encourage one another with, you know, these big groups,” said Jim Bridgewater, Elder, “A lot of times we don’t see these brothers and sisters from other congregations until we do these things. So it’s kind of like a, I don’t want to use the word reunion, but we get together in fellowship and encourage one another as well.”

The event included various talks, interviews and demonstrations among congregation members.
