Parent & Child Dedication

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, March 26 from 4-5pm. Prior to the Dedication Celebration, parents are required to attend a one-time class on Sunday morning, March 12, during the 11AM service in room TH 4. This class will focus on what a dedication is, as well as provide you with some excellent tools and resources for leading your child.

Woman to Woman

Woman to Woman features a new speaker & topic on the last Monday of each month, plus themed potlucks. Come join us! Make new friends & grow friendships during time together.

Toddler Time

Bring your children and join us on the following Tuesday mornings for a chance to meet and connect with other parents, do some fun parent/child projects, enjoy a light snack, relax and watch while the kids play in our classrooms, enjoy the play ground and more. Geared for parents/caregivers with children 2 and under (siblings are welcome to attend). Active adult participation is required. Our classrooms will be open from 9-11 AM and will have a variety of stations where you can choose activities to experience and enjoy – or just sit and visit while children free play. Bring your own picnic lunch if you’d like and use the outdoor seating at the church before heading home. Invite a friend or neighbor to join you! No pre-registration is necessary. The cost is $2.00 per child – all ages.

Dates:

Father Daughter Dance

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 & Daughters – choose the night that is best for you! Our daughters are precious gifts from God, & this night will celebrate that fact by allowing their fathers (or other adult male) a time of demonstrating to these young ladies how they should be treated, honored & respected as they mature.

Register

*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.

Tim Hawkins Live

Since giving up his job as a grocery truck driver in 2002, Tim Hawkins has been forging the magical blend between two comedic ideals: A genuinely funny comedy show that caters to the entire family. Is it realistic? Hawkins believes so. With over 300 million views on YouTube, 110 sold out show dates every year, 125K YouTube subscribers, and a motley crew of 400K+ Facebook fans, Tim has started a gut-busting grassroots revolution of multi-generational proportions.

What sets him apart? Some would say it is his equally gifted and twisted approach to the medium. His stand-up material is vigorous, well-timed, and honed to perfection. And his music? It stands on its own. However, the connection he makes with his fans goes deeper than that: “If you can’t laugh at yourself, laugh at other people.” It is this ability to show the brokenness of our human nature and simultaneously marvel in its hilarity which makes Tim such a unique artist.

NEW LIFE CELEBRATION

Kick off the Easter weekend by joining us for this FREE family event. Pantano’s 4th annual New Life Celebration includes traditional activities like egg hunts, egg dying, and crafts, but that is not all. You and your guests will also enjoy a petting zoo, inflatables, train rides, a magician, and much more. Food and Easter baskets will be available to purchase. This event is open to the community, so please help us spread the word.
