The event will take place in the gazebo closer to Main Street and Hermie’s, and all ages are encouraged to attend for an afternoon of music and fun. The event is free of charge.
This is the third Worship Fest; the first event occurred in 2013 the weekend before finals week and was hosted by Campus Christian Fellowship. The following year, the group hosted it again at the beginning of April. Although the event did not happen last year, the main coordinator, Steven Walquist, decided to bring it back this year.
“We had a really positive response in the past years from the local churches and community,” Walquist said. “Many people (from) the past years were really enthusiastic and encouraging to bring it back.”
Walquist has coordinated with the local churches that have worship teams, and three of those churches will be present at the park to play. Red Hills Southern Baptist Church, Sonrise Christian Fellowship, and Calvary Chapel Cedar City’s worship teams will be at the event. Steve Gray, from True Life Center (TLC), will be taking time to run sound for the event.
The event is the result of a lot of cooperation from Walquist, Gray, and the churches. The planning began back in January, and the churches have been preparing their song sets since.
The groups will be playing music by various contemporary Christian artists, and they are excited to share their music with the community.
Walquist, as well as all those involved, are excited to bring the event back to the community.
“We are hoping to continue the event annually and to include more churches in years to follow,” Walquist said.
Walquist would like to thank the True Life Center for the use of its sound system for the event, even though its worship team is unable to participate this year. He would also like to thank Gray for taking time out of his schedule to run the sound for the event.
Everyone is encouraged and invited to attend Cedar City Worship Fest to enjoy an afternoon of music, fellowship and fun. For more information, see the Facebook page for “Cedar City Worship Fest” or call (435) 590-3514.
