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.

Who’s in Charge Here?

Read Judges 17:1 through 18:31; Luke 4:31 through 5:11

The teenage girl had invited several friends to a party at her house while her parents were out of town. The night started out smoothly, but, within a couple of hours, her friends—and several uninvited guests—became unruly and the house became strewn with trash and broken items as the teenagers did whatever they wanted. The girl had to call the police to come and restore order.

In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit (Judges 17:6).

Israel knew the consequences of not having a king or any authority figure. The people sinned greatly against God, and everyone acted in their own selfish interests. How terrifying it must have been to live in such a society! Only when people have rules and authority to guide their lives can they enjoy peace and real freedom.

Those who ignore the teachings and instructions of God’s Word and seek to do what they want to do instead will not have peace. God is King, and everyone must bow and submit to His authority to have a joyous and abundant life.

Prayer Suggestion: Heavenly Father, have complete control of my life.

Quicklook: Judges 17:1–6
