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.

Pure Love Affair

Read Song of Songs 1:1 through 8:14

A bride and groom wanted to honor God by praying together before the wedding ceremony but also wanted to keep the tradition of the groom not seeing the bride until she walked down the aisle. Their solution was to stand “back to back” on opposite sides of the wall of an archway between rooms, hold hands, and pray. That pictured the purity of their love, focusing on God first then honoring each other.

A similar portrait of pure love is the essence of the Song of Songs. Both the lover and the beloved are focused on each other, describing in detail the one they love.

I belong to my beloved, and his desire is for me (Song of Songs 7:10).

It is with similar sweet anticipation that those who follow Christ look forward to the day when they will be with Him and live in fulfilling fellowship with Him for eternity. And as they wait, they tell others about their beloved.

Prayer Suggestion: Lord, may the way I live and what I say show others my love for You.

Quicklook: Song of Songs 7:10–13
