Pastor Tony’s Transition Out of Lighthouse

Are you curious about Pastor Tony’s transition out of Lighthouse and the future of Groups Ministry at Lighthouse? Check out this video for answers to your questions.


Please join Lighthouse staff at any of the church services this weekend to pray for Tony, say goodbye and wish him and his family well. There will be a gathering in the coffee shop (in the new building) after each service where you can talk to him and enjoy a hot or iced coffee beverage.

Pastor Tony’s last day at Lighthouse is Tuesday, June 13.

It’s the Great Planting, Charlie Brown!


Just kidding. But in all seriousness, if this rainy weather has had you cooped up inside for far too long, join us this Saturday morning for an all church, family-friendly event. We’ll be planting over 1,000 plants and trees around the Lighthouse property beginning at 9 a.m. Rain or shine. Coffee and pastries will be served in the morning and pizza will be provided for lunch. Bring a shovel, your gloves, and the members of your home, learning and/or fun group for a wonderful chance to gather with friends while helping spruce up the church property. Register here (for food planning):

Welcome our Groups Administrator!

This week marks my first year as the Home Groups Pastor at Lighthouse. It has been an awesome year for me and I want to take this opportunity to thank Beth Beck for her help in assisting Home Groups and me throughout my first year. As year two begins, my pastoral oversight for groups at Lighthouse is increasing. To aid in that change, Sarah Biggerstaff has been hired as a Groups Administrator. I am excited to have Sarah introduce herself to you. –Tony


Some of you may know me from my role as Publicity Team Leader for MOPS or as a helper in children’s ministries, but this time I’d like to introduce myself as the Groups Administrator at Lighthouse. I’ll be assisting Pastor Tony with communication, planning, organizing, and am here to help Home Groups, Fun Groups and Adult Learning Groups with questions, concerns and special requests. I’ll be taking over the administrative duties that Beth Beck previously handled for Groups, so anything that you would go to Beth for, feel free to send to me.

I’m really looking forward to working in this new role and hope to meet many of you soon. Here’s a little bit about me:

  • I grew up in nearby Graham and graduated from PLU, go Lutes!
  • I spent 10+ years working in Public & Media Relations, specifically in the travel & tourism industry. Most recently I’ve spent my time as a stay at home mom to my two and four year old sons.
  • I’m a huge Seahawks fan. My husband and I had season tickets until we had children and our friends still tease us that we traded our seats for strollers.

Feel free to email me anytime at and I’ll be happy to assist you. Although I primarily work part-time from home, I will be in the office a couple of times each week and check my email and phone messages regularly. I look forward to hearing from you!
