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.

Extending Grace

Read 2 Chronicles 8:1 through 9:31; John 7:37 through 8:11

Julie, a high school girl, got pregnant out of wedlock, but she continued going to church. Then, one day in the ladies’ room, she overheard some girls gossiping about her. That was the last time she attended for many years. When she needed support, her church friends failed her.

“Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her” (John 8:7).

Christians often categorize sin. On a scale of one to ten, some rate immorality as a ten but gossip as only a three. Others may rate hatred a five, unkind words a six. God doesn’t see sin that way. He says everyone has missed the mark. Jesus died for the gossiper and for the fornicator.

When a Christian sins, God’s people are to love and restore them, not gossip or avoid them. Since everyone has sinned, everyone needs grace. Church is not a club for righteous people but a group of people rescued at a terrible cost.

Challenge for Today: Show Christ’s love to someone needing grace today.

Quicklook: John 8:3–11
