Dear WTUC Members and Friends,
Here at WTUC, we take seriously the call of Christ to help others through prayer, volunteer work, and monetary donations. Our church supports many outreach ministries and makes special offerings for emergencies and people in crisis. We are blessed to have such an amazing and diverse congregation which gives so generously of its time and talents.
Like all churches, WTUC could not exist without this generous support to run its various operating expenses. Also, it is at this time of year that we send money from our yearâ€™s benevolence budget to organizations and ministries that we support. (Some of the ministries we support are: Second Harvest Japan, Sanyukai â€“ a medical and food ministry for the homeless, two Japanese childrenâ€™s homes, Fuchu Prison ministry, a shelter for battered Asian women, ministry to a hospice for the homeless, Asian Rural Institute, the Personal Growth and Counseling Center, a harp ministry to the terminally ill, the Tokyo English Life Line, and a fund for relief work throughout the world when natural disasters strike such as floods, earthquakes, and tsunamis.)Â Â I would ask you to please continue to give generously in the offering plate and with your tithings. Think of us on Sundays when you are away, knowing that the churchâ€™s ministry continues throughout the year.
Godâ€™s work is being done here through WTUC. We prayerfully donate to the church and the churchâ€™s ministry in many ways. Our financial support is one of the ways to show our gratitude to God.
As you give, remember that Jesus said, If you give you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more and running over. (Luke 6:38)
