Welcome to Redwood Park Church
Everyone is Welcome.
Nobody is Perfect.
Anything is Possible.
Our daily Easter Reflection is a way for us to prepare our hearts together as a church community as we approach Easter. Each day, we will post a daily passage accompanied by a video from one of our Redwood pastors. We encourage you to join us as we commit to remembering the death of Jesus and celebrating His resurrection.
GOOD FRIDAY PASSAGES
50 Then Jesus shouted out again, and he released his spirit. 51 At that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart, 52 and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead. 53 They left the cemetery after Jesus’ resurrection, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people.
54 The Roman officer[a] and the other soldiers at the crucifixion were terrified by the earthquake and all that had happened. They said, “This man truly was the Son of God!”
55 And many women who had come from Galilee with Jesus to care for him were watching from a distance. 56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary (the mother of James and Joseph), and the mother of James and John, the sons of Zebedee.
17 Carrying the cross by himself, he went to the place called Place of the Skull (in Hebrew, Golgotha). 18 There they nailed him to the cross. Two others were crucified with him, one on either side, with Jesus between them. 19 And Pilate posted a sign on the cross that read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.”20 The place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek, so that many people could read it.
21 Then the leading priests objected and said to Pilate, “Change it from ‘The King of the Jews’ to ‘He said, I am King of the Jews.’”
22 Pilate replied, “No, what I have written, I have written.”
23 When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they divided his clothes among the four of them. They also took his robe, but it was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom. 24 So they said, “Rather than tearing it apart, let’s throw dice for it.” This fulfilled the Scripture that says, “They divided my garments among themselves and threw dice for my clothing.” So that is what they did.
25 Standing near the cross were Jesus’ mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary (the wife of Clopas), and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus saw his mother standing there beside the disciple he loved, he said to her, “Dear woman, here is your son.”27 And he said to this disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from then on this disciple took her into his home.
28 Jesus knew that his mission was now finished, and to fulfill Scripture he said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar of sour wine was sitting there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put it on a hyssop branch, and held it up to his lips. 30 When Jesus had tasted it, he said, “It is finished!” Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
We welcome you and your family to join us for a special time of communion and a reflective message. We'll take time to journey through the story of the cross with scripture readings and beautiful worship.
This is a more traditional service than our Easter Sunday services. We hope you to see you at one of our 2 service times at 5pm & 7pm. Childcare for ages 0 to 4 will be available.
The resurrection of Jesus changed the course of human history and this is worth celebrating in a big way! You're invited to join us at any of our 4 services as we experience the hope & love of Jesus and what it means for us today!

We believe that we are called by God to make a difference in Thunder Bay and in our world. We believe that faith is a life changing and a life giving experience available to everyone. We believe Jesus calls us each to become fully alive and that knowing God and living our lives for Him is what we were created for.
The heart of our mission NEVER changes. We want to lead people into a life giving relationship with Jesus and embrace his call to make a difference in the world around us.
We hope you will join us at one of our weekend services on Sundays at 9:30am & 11:30am.
