On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake struck northeastern Japan, causing widespread damage and triggering deadly tsunamis. Few segments of Japanese society have been spared from the effects of this disaster. In the coming weeks and months, the people of Japan will undertake the massive task of caring for the hurting, rebuilding, and returning to normal life. Undoubtedly, this is a time when the Church can be a source of hope for Japan like never before.
In response to the Gospel's call to help others in Matthew 25, The Churches of Christ in Christian Union is accepting donations to help with disaster relief in Japan. The CCCU responds to crises through partnerships and people on the ground where the crisis has occurred. Through our partnership with World Gospel Mission (WGM), we are able to respond to this disaster. In Japan, WGM missionaries work with the Immanuel General Mission (IGM), an indigenous Japanese holiness denomination who will help lead the disaster relief efforts.
You have the power to make a difference in someone's life by making a donation to the CCCU Disaster Relief Fund. Every donation helps provide services to those in need and can help bring comfort to those in distress. The CCCU has set up an donation web page. Contributions can be made online using the link below or sent by mail to the CCCU Global Ministry Center, P.O. Box 10, Circleville, OH 43113.
