Tenth Anniversary Sunday!

Today our church celebrated her tenth anniversary. Dr. Bob Smith was our guest preacher all day. He said, “This is a miracle church.” God has certainly poured out His grace on us over the years. Bro. Smith also said, “If God has allowed you to have this property and this group of people in the first ten years, I can’t imagine what He is going to do in the next ten!” We are excited about whatever God wants to do here at Lighthouse Baptist Church!
God blessed us this morning with 133 in church and 4 saved.   (More below the slideshow)

Tonight, I showed our church the stacks of decision cards that have been filled out over the last ten years of our church – people getting saved, baptized, joining the church, or surrendering to full-time service.  I said, “You are in here somewhere. Your children are in this stack somewhere.” Sometimes we need to be reminded just how God has used the church in our lives.
After tonight’s service, we gave a commemorative lighthouse clock to each family. I also honored our remaining charter families and honorary charter families: Ron & Kelli Birkett, Tim & Marie Dart, Greg and Lisa Camp, and Cecil and Lee Davidson. These folks helped lay the foundation of our church, and I am forever grateful to them. Each of them was presented a beautiful New Testament.
My family and I were flabbergasted by the outpouring of love from our church tonight. They presented us with a beautiful plaque, many notes and cards, love offerings, and gifts. I was especially blessed that they gave each of our children a wrapped present to open in front of the church. What a blessing! It is a joy to serve our church as pastor and family.

    What a wonderful service today. Dad and I enjoyed the entire day. It was great to see how much your church loves their pastor and his wife and children. I was very touched at Bro. Birketts presentation.
