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.

Take Courage!


Read Mark 6:1 through 8:26

Published: Sep 21, 2017

After a day of ministry, Jesus told His disciples to get into a boat and go to Bethsaida, while He went up onto a mountain to pray. Later that night, a storm arose and the disciples had a hard time crossing the lake because of the wind. Jesus went to them, walking on the water. They mistook Him for a ghost and were terrified. But Jesus spoke to them to calm their fear.

Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid” (Mark 6:50).

Christians often face storms in their lives that cause them to be afraid. No matter how hard they fight against the winds of adversity, they can’t steer their lives to safety. They sometimes feel they are by themselves. Just when they think all is lost, Jesus climbs into the boat with them and says, “Take courage. Don’t be afraid.” Suddenly, the water is calm and the winds cease. All is calm and peaceful because Jesus walked onto the scene.

Prayer for Today: Lord, calm the storm in my life today and help me steer my life in faith.
