Pastor Bob Dygert and his family will be honored Oct. 16 for nearly seven years of service to Knights Baptist Church.
The church at 4809 Paul Buchman Highway will thank Dygert for "his sacrificial dedication, spiritual teaching and wise counsel" at the 11 a.m. worship service. A luncheon in his honor will follow the service.
The festivities are part of Clergy Appreciation month.
Dygert, a graduate of Baptist College of Florida, became pastor at Knights following service at a church in Daleville, Ala.
Dygert and his wife of about 28 years, Terry, have three sons, Devin, 23, Zachary, 20, and Jonathan 16. The family has had a "tireless commitment to our congregation and our community" during their time in Plant City, the church said.
