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
 
Sunday 10:45am. We look forward to meeting you.

From Strength to Strength

Read Psalms 82:1 through 85:13; Acts 27:1–20

We use the term marathon as a way to honor the Greek runner, Phidippedes, who ran about twenty-six miles to carry the news of the Greek victory in the battle of Marathon. The effort killed him. Today, running a marathon is the crowning achievement for most long-distance runners. Even prepared runners struggle throughout the race in different ways. Some draw strength from the nourishment that awaits at checkpoints, while others run with a friend.

In some ways, life can feel like a marathon when hard times and struggles come. It can seem like a chore just to make it through each day, but, for life’s race, God’s people can draw strength from His promises.

Blessed are those whose strength is in you . . . They go from strength to strength (Psalm 84:5,7).

This is not human strength, but a strength that God provides along the way in the difficult journey of life. As this life has its way of taking its toll on human hearts, God is there for those who look to Him for strength.

Challenge for Today: Find your strength in the promises of Scripture and the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Quicklook: Psalm 84:5–7
