    In Honor of Your Faithful Service

    To Our Beloved Pastor

    We Hereby Name You Pastor Emeritus

    “Let the elders that rule well
    be counted worthy of double honour, 
    especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.”
    Bible Verse -- 1 Timothy 5:17

    1 Timothy 5:17 is the best verse to honor you
    and your work here at Lighthouse Baptist Church.
    We believe the Lord used you and your family
    to accomplish a work only you could have done.
    You led in Truth, battled for Truth, taught the Truth,
    and preached the Truth with love and compassion.
    We thank the Lord for sending you here 
    when we needed you most!
    Now, as the Lord moves you on, may God bless
    and keep you safely in His arms as you continue to
    serve in this last dispensation of time.

    May God always be near you,
    showering his blessings and faith
    on you and your family. 
    May God guide you with His love as
    you walk the path of retirement

    With much Affection, Love, and Gratitude
    from your Church Family

Service was excellent! The website is easy to navigate and personalized the products. Email proof was received within the hour after placing order. Wording was in Spanish and they corrected some of the words by adding the accent (didn’t think it was possible to add) so I was impressed. I will definitely order from them again!

Product Description

Symbolizing the house of God, with its peaked roof and sturdy base, the Religious Retirement Tribute is a beautiful way to mark the final chapter of your pastor or deacon’s good work. Shepherding a congregation takes commitment and dedication; make sure your gift to honor that service is worthy.

What really stands out about this piece is the ample plaque space for engraving. Choose an excerpt from a beloved hymn or perhaps a line of poetry. You are also welcome to choose from our sample pastor emeritus farewell tribute bible verses. The example on this piece from First Timothy is a lovely sentiment. “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor.” This piece can also be personalized to honor both pastor and his companion in marriage if inscribed with best wishes to retiring pastor and wife wording ideas.
