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 meat every
 
Sunday at 10:45. We look forward to meeting you.

Kindness Begets Kindness

Read 2 Samuel 19:1 through 20:26

A couple faithfully served God for many years, opening their home and showing kindness to others. Many people came to know Jesus and grow in Him through their influence. Shortly before retirement, the people in their church did a home makeover for them. Those who helped were happy that they were able to repay this couple for the years of kindness and caring they had shown.

When King David fled from his son Absalom, Barzillai provided for the king. After his reign was reestablished, David offered to take care of Barzillai in return for his kindness. Barzillai asked that David bestow his favor on his son Kimham instead.

“Here is your servant Kimham. Let him cross over with my lord the king. Do for him whatever you wish” (2 Samuel 19:37).

Paying it forward is a modern way of expressing the idea that an act of kindness often fosters other acts of kindness. You may never know how an act of kindness may multiply to benefit many others and bring glory to God.

Prayer Suggestion: Lord, may the kindness I show inspire others to be kind and bring glory to You.

Quicklook: 2 Samuel 19:31–40

  • TV Versions of End Times Don't Line Up with the Biblical View
