CityFest is…

CityFest is a movement about serving the city and proclaiming the Good News. Our vision is to see the Christian community come together in unity, service, and proclamation – showing the community-at-large the joy, peace, love, and grace of Jesus Christ.

First Baptist Church and 75 other churches are partnering with the Palau Association to proclaim the Good News. We are beyond excited to see God move in powerful ways as we serve and share the Gospel with our beautiful community. We are going to see the Valley change through the Gospel and love of Christ.

Take Action!
