    Commissioning Service: Dave and Karen Baer

    Who are Dave and Karen Baer?
    Dave is from Pastor Scott’s home church in Millersburg, PA and Karen grew up in Cromwell, CT. Karen also attended WEFC for a couple years while living in the area.

    Where are they going and what will they be doing?
    For six months of the year, they will be in Medellin, Columbia, South America. Dave will be teaching Old Testament at the Biblical Seminary of Columbia and mentoring the younger faculty at the school. Karen will be ministering to the families of the other missionaries as well as the families of the students at the school. The other six months of the year will be spent in Connecticut. During this time, Dave will be recruiting teachers for seminaries around the world. While in Connecticut, WEFC will be their home church.

    What will we be doing at the commissioning service?

    • We will get to hear more about their ministry and what they will be doing.
    • Pastor Scott’s father, Rev. Brooke Solberg, will offer a word of encouragement. Dave grew up under Brooke’s ministry.
    • We will consider what it means for us as a church to partner with Dave and Karen Baer.
    • We will commission them and cover them with our prayers.
    • We will celebrate what God is doing in their lives and the life of WEFC.

    Light refreshments will be served. Please join us Sunday, April 29th at 5:00 pm.
