Caring For Creation (C4C)
The shared vision of the two programs, Caring for Creation (C4C) and Caring for Social Justice (C4SJ) derives from the 4 Harmonies of the Bethel Bible Series: to live in harmony with environment, others, ourselves and God. As Lutheran Christians, we are called to care for others and for the Earth.
