Caring For Social Justice (C4SJ)
Educational Forum and Discussion Series at 10:15am on Sundays, as listed, Borgwardt Hall
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 the environment, others, ourselves and God.

In addition to the forums, C4SJ encourages ongoing self-education through Bethel’s Social Justice Book Discussion Group and participating in social justice initiatives with our Synod and other groups that advocate for positive change.
