Peace and Justice

”…he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, to release the oppressed to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” -Luke 4:18

Our peace and justice ministry at BSLC formed to further live out our Baptismal covenant to serve all people. Peace and Justice meets monthly to discuss issues of faith and life and seeks to provide a forum for volunteerism and action around a variety of issues. Many Peace and Justice projects have become integral ministries here at BSLC. Currently Peace and Justice is involved in the Peace and Justice Fair every summer in Vancouver and is working on Safe Car Camping here as well.
