Come connect, eat, laugh and enjoy. Everyone is welcome. This is a monthly event, held on the last Monday of every month (unless it falls on a holiday). Every month there is a specific food potluck theme. Every month there is an informative dynamic speaker or event. Won’t you come join us?
Kick off the Easter weekend by joining us for this FREE family event. Pantano’s 5th annual New Life Celebration includes traditional activities like egg hunts with over 25,000 eggs hidden, egg dyeing, and crafts, but that is not all! You and your guests will also enjoy a petting zoo, inflatables, train rides, an illusionist, reptile shows, games, face painting and so much more. Food and gifts will be available to purchase. This event is open to the community, so please help us spread the word.
This is more than a time for candy-filled baskets and colorful eggs; Easter is a time we set aside to remember the third day after Christ died on a cross; the day when He rose from the grave. This exciting, historical event had a significant impact on the world and to this day, Christ’s followers still rejoice because love came back to life on that day. Our service will feature exciting worship music, a dramatic live performance, a relevant message from the Bible, and baptisms. Do you want to get baptized on Easter Sunday?
Shine Like the Stars is our theme this year.
Your evening will include dinner, dessert, a gift for the daughters and a special photo of the evening!
We hold two dances to accommodate all of our fathers and daughters – choose the night that is best for you! Our daughters are precious gifts from God and this night will celebrate that fact by allowing their fathers a time of demonstrating to these young ladies how they should be treated, honored and respected as they mature. If a father is not present in the daughter’s life, mothers may choose to invite another important adult male role model in the daughter’s life to take her to the dance.
- Register for the April 6 dance – (Deadline: April 1)
- Register for the April 13 dance – (Deadline: April 8)
*After deadlines cost will be $20 per person, while space remains.
Suggestions for Fathers…
Make every effort to make the evening special for your daughter. Wear a tie, buy her flowers or a corsage, buy her a gift to start the evening off, write a special letter for her, or make a card for her to join you for the evening.

- April 10 – Jungle Exploration
Dedications are designed for parents to take time to specifically dedicate their child to God.
We offer parent & child dedication ceremonies twice a year. The next dedication ceremony will be Sunday, April 22 from 4-5PM starting in the Auditorium with a reception to follow in Coop Court. Prior to the Dedication Celebration, parents are required to attend a one-time class on Sunday morning, April 8, during the 11 AM service in room TH5. This class will focus on what a dedication is, as well as provide you with some excellent tools and resources for leading your child.
The Children’s Baptism class helps elementary children and their parents answer questions about baptism and aids parents in determining if their child is ready to make this incredible decision. This class is interesting, interactive, and informative for both children and their parents. We ask that at least one parent attend the class with the child.
Registration is encouraged, but not required.
