We’ve always said that The FEST is more than a day – it continues all year long.  We have been partnering to build out a new prayer/reflection APP called SOTE Life (Salt of the Earth).   This APP is filled with daily reflections, songs, prayers, and so much more.  It’s going to quickly become an essential part of your walk with the Lord – your life of prayer.   Make sure you are on The FEST email list and watch for an email at the end of August so you can download and be inspired by this very helpful prayer and reflection APP.   It will also help you receive the most up-to-date FEST news and information.

ALPHA Village

The FEST sponsors a number of community outreach efforts one of which is ALPHA Village.  We have been working for the past five years to bring help and hope to our sisters and brothers in the Clark/Fulton community.   Through ALPHA Village, we sponsor community clean up days, regular food distribution, Project WARMTH (winter coat, hat, gloves) distribution, along with community leadership development.

We will be launching a new online platform to help everyone in the neighborhood find the help, support, and care they need.  OneHopeNEO.com will coordinate all community based resources for easy access.

We will be planning a Fall Clean-up day (date pending due to Covid-19).   If you would like to be on the mailing list to learn more and have good information about upcoming events, please send an email to caitlin@c87.68c.myftpupload.com.


God has created an amazing universe and filled it with wonderful places to explore and adventures to experience.

outRISE lets you share your experiences with others and allows others to give you best ideas and insights on places – all over the world – to visit, see, experience and explore.

The developer of outRise has long been a friend of The FEST and has partnered with one of our new sponsors, Remarkable Lake County, to plot out some of the best places to explore right in our own backyard.

GreaterthanHeroin.com / Relink.org

Amid the challenges of the pandemic, there’s another crisis that continues to rage on – heroin and opiate overdoses.   Over the past several years, The FEST has been working to create community awareness and support across the region by GreaterthanHeroin.com.

We’ve also partnered with relink.org which has ‘best’ resources for those who need help and their families.   If you know of someone who is struggling, please explore.
