More than 200 people came to the Dover Sheraton Hotel November 6th to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Lighthouse Christian Center in Milford. Begun in 1971 as a small ministry meeting in a building owned by a local non-profit group, the Lighthouse Christian Center currently has its own church building along the Milford-Harrington Highway. Having grown to a congregation of more than 500 members, the church is currently planning construction of a new facility near Delaware 1, north of the city. State Reps. Jack Peterman (R-Milford) and Harvey Kenton (R-Milford) presented Pastor Royce Andrus with a House of Representatives’ Tribute at the occasion, praising the strong commitment and hard work that has led the continued growth of the organization.
