    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.

    deep compassion, dedication and
    generosity you have shared with
    your flock for over 47 years.

    May God bless and keep you 
    safely in His arms as you continue to 
    serve in this last dispensation of time. 
    We thank you for your ministry, 
    your guidance and your care.

    “His Lord said unto him, well done, 
    thou good and faithful servant: thou 
    hast been faithful over a few things... 
    enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.”
    - Matthew 25:21

    To Our Pastor’s Wife

    When we thank God for our Pastor,
    we must give Him thanks for two.
    For when your husband came to us,
    God also sent us you.

    Your presence blesses all of us
    who know you from day to day.
    As our Pastor’s wife and much
    more, you have served God
    in a fine and worthy way.

    In recognition of your hard
    work, dedication and service
    to our Lord and Savior.

    “We continually remember before our
    God and Father your work produced
    by faith, your labor prompted by
    love, and your endurance inspired
    by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
    - 1 Thessalonians 1:3

    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

This product is amazing. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

I was looking for a special gift for our Pastor who is retiring. I found the perfect gift on Crystal Central. The customization process was very easy. I liked the fact that the company emailed you a copy of the design before it went into production to make sure everything was accurate. My purchase went into production immediately after I confirmed, and I received my finished product a week sooner than expected. I am happy with my purchase. I would definitely recommend Crystal Central to everyone looking for that special gift.
