Dear Lighthouse Family,
Jan and I want to express our great appreciation for allowing us to attend and for me to serve as your pastor for the past 5 1/2 years.  It has been a joy to be part of the family.  To be there for the good times and the tough times. It has been wonderful to see God work in our midst. Thank you for your kind expressions and actions over the years.  We are so grateful for the multitude of ways you have taken care of us and the ways you have allowed us to care for you.  
We will never forget the atmosphere of love among our church members and how the church family truly acted as the body of Christ, caring for each other's needs and ministering to each other, just as a body is supposed to do.
While we will not be present or seeing you all on a weekly basis, you will still be in our hearts and on minds.  Feel free to give us a call if you have something you want to share about how God is working or you would like us to lift you up to the Lord in prayer.
Finally, thank you for making our final Sunday special with your cards, gifts, warm expressions, well wishes and words of wisdom.
We love you all,
Jay and Jan Ashcraft
