AKINA Community Church


 
Welcome to
 
AKINA Communty Church
 
AKINA is an Ojibwe word for “everyone”. At Akina
 
 Community Church everyone is welcome; all ages,
 
cultures and backgrounds. We gather every week to
 
do what is difficult to do on our own and that is to
 
honor our Creator by giving our full attention (our
 
mind, heart & soul) to Him. We were never meant to
 
walk this trail alone but together. It is our desire that
 
Akina would be a place where you can connect with
 
God and others on this journey. We meet every
 
Saturday 6 to 8pm. We look forward to meeting you.

Fear Not

Read Mark 6:1 through 7:37

Little Alexandra woke up terrified from a nightmare. Her frightened cries brought her father running into her room. He gathered his little girl in his arms, whispering gently, “Don’t be afraid. Daddy’s here.” The sobbing subsided and Alexandra snuggled into her father’s arms.

Jesus’ disciples found themselves in a boat on a dark, windy night. When they saw Jesus walking on the water toward them, the disciples thought they were seeing a ghost and were frightened. But when Jesus climbed into the boat, the winds died down and His presence overcame their fear.

But when they saw him walking on the lake, they though he was a ghost. They cried out because they all saw him and were terrified. Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid” (Mark 6:50).

Many times in life people find themselves in places or situations where they feel helpless and afraid. Just like Alexandra’s father came rushing to comfort her, so God comes to His children with His reassuring presence. He gently reminds Christians that He is always with them, and in His everlasting arms they find peace.

Thought for Today: God’s presence banishes fear.

Quicklook: Mark 6:47–52
