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 look forward to meeting you.

Through Every Trial

Read 2 Corinthians 10:1 through 13:14

Despite severe physical disabilities and heartaches, Mack maintained a strong faith in God. His mother had given him up for adoption. His adoptive parents were Christians, and Mack became a Christian at an early age. While in his twenties, he developed an illness that resulted in the amputation of his legs, blindness, and other major health problems. Part of Mack’s testimony was that, in spite of setbacks and disappointments, with God’s help he could find meaning and purpose for his life.

Paul suffered a physical affliction and prayed for God to remove it. However, that didn’t happen.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2Corinthians 12:9).

We know from reading Paul’s letters in the New Testament that, despite his affliction, he served God and endured trials far beyond what most people have faced.

Reading about Paul should give Christians the assurance that through every trial God remains faithful.

Thought for Today: God walks beside His children through the bad times as well as the good.
