A dozen South Brevard County churches are getting together to paint local classrooms, beautify school landscapes and stock supply closets as part of Space Coast CityFest, a region-wide evangelistic campaign. It involves a total of 201 participating churches and 1,600 volunteers.
“It is a movement focused on encouraging unity in communities, denominations and ethnicities to serve others and proclaim the Good News,” said Randy Burtis, the festival director.
Space Coast CityFest will begin at 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, March 6 and 7 at Space Coast Daily Park, located next to Viera High School. Admission and parking are free.
Covid-19 safety protocols and guidelines will be observed.
A Family Fun Stage Program will start at 4 p.m. At 5 p.m., a sports demonstration will roar into action.
The main stage program kicks off at 6 p.m. Saturday. The lineup features Social Club Misfits, Mandisa, Casting Crowns and guest speaker Andrew Palau.
Sunday’s lineup features Mac Powell, Andy Mineo, Zach Williams and Palau.
“We will have a diverse music for everyone, including country, hip-hop and adult contemporary Christian,” Burtis said.
An illusionist will entertain.
The program ends at
9:30 p.m. both days.
Other ways Space Coast CityFest has served the community include a school partnership, helping with various-needs tutors, classroom monitors and school supplies for children who cannot afford their own. A network of volunteers works with feeding programs for homeless and non-homeless.
