Dear First Pres,

   Things are really starting to ramp up for City Fest, which is now only six weeks away. I don't know about you, but knowing we're six weeks out lights a bit of a fire in me (and maybe a little anxiety). If you haven't been praying regularly for this important week in our Valley, I ask that you would please start doing so. And, if there are people that you hope to invite, now is the time for you to begin coordinating with them. Now is the time for you to be looking for the God spaces in your conversation. Now is the time to ask the Holy Spirit to lead you in when and how to invite them to consider faith in Christ. Of course, those are additional reasons to be lifting this whole thing up in prayer.

   Now is also the time to start ramping up the advertising. If you're paying attention, you'll start seeing more about City Fest on billboards, on television, and in the mail. And, we'd love for you to join in that advertising as well. On Sunday, we'll have lawn signs available for you to put in your yard. I encourage you to grab one and plant it in your front yard. Hopefully, God will use it as a conversation starter with your neighbors.

   If you're looking for a way to volunteer, you can explore the opportunities on our website. If you'd like to simply learn more about the big week and its various events, you can explore the City Fest website.

   I believe that God wants to use City Fest not only to bring thousands of people to faith in Christ, but to also revive the Church's passion for those who are far from God. So, please, please, please join me in praying for God to bring revival among us, His people, and repentance among those who have not put their faith in Christ.
