When it comes to life on earth, we’ve all heard some version of the quote by Heraclitus – There is nothing permanent except change. Everything has and is changing as we find our way into the new normal. However, as people of faith, we also believe that God is permanent and he never changes (Hebrews 13:8)! He is our rock in the midst of chaos, uncertainty, and change!

We are all facing lots of changes as our economy begins to reopen. Here are some transitions that have or are happening at Pantano. Let me help us get “caught up” on some changes.

Physical On-Campus Services Resume June 7th

Services at our East Campus begin Sunday, June 7th at 9 am, 11 am, and 1 pm. Students will resume on June 21st – 9 am and 11 am. Kids will resume on July 5th. Please use our online service option if you are sick or have a higher risk of medical issues if you get sick or if you are choosing to avoid public places. We are waiting for permission from the Vail school district for our Southeast Campus to resume at Empire High School. No date has been given.

We have placed hand sanitizer dispensers all around the campus. Services will be as “touchless” as humanly possible (doors propped open, pre-packaged communion you’ll pick up, no handouts, etc.). While we are not requiring attendees to wear masks, our staff and key volunteers will wear masks through June. We are asking you to practice physical distancing for the protection of yourself and others.

Parking Lot

We had signed a contract to repair and resurface our East Campus parking lot before the pandemic. It was way past due and several people were injured because of the cracks. It will be finished as we begin to resume on-campus services.


We have some staffing changes happening in our Kids and Student ministries. It’s with great sadness that I have to announce that Shelly Vasey is resigning as our Kids Pastor. Shelly loves our kids, church, and staff, but feels it’s time for a change for her and for Pantano. She’ll be with us through our Crazy Daze event ending on July 10th.

We’ve hired Sean Haynes to be our NextGen Pastor, who will serve on our Executive Team overseeing both Kids and Student ministries. With our middle school pastor vacancy, Sean will join Brian Lucas to provide special attention to our students as we are looking for our next Kids Pastor.
