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
 
Saturday 6 to 8pm. We look forward to meeting you.

TODAY'S DEVOTIONS

 
 
 

Uniquely Gifted

Read Mark 14:1 through 16:20

The speaker revealed the financial needs of the crisis pregnancy center in her area. Ella desperately wanted to give to this ministry, but there was simply no money in her tight budget. Frustrated and discouraged she almost missed what the speaker said next. “While our financial needs are great, what we need most is for volunteers to organize and manage our clothing bank.” Ella’s heart quickened at the words. She had time to give and was especially gifted at organization. After the meeting she immediately volunteered her services.

“She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my burial” (Mark 14:8).

Just as this grateful woman poured out her precious gift on Jesus’ feet, so you can use your gifts and talents to honor Him. God does not ask you to do something you can’t. All people have different situations and abilities, but each is uniquely gifted to participate in the work of God’s Kingdom. Instead of becoming discouraged about what you cannot do, do what you can.

Challenge for Today: Look for ways to use your gifts.

Quicklook: Mark 14:3–9
