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.
DAY 6 PASSAGE // JOHN 19:31-42
31 It was the day of preparation, and the Jewish leaders didn’t want the bodies hanging there the next day, which was the Sabbath (and a very special Sabbath, because it was Passover week). So they asked Pilate to hasten their deaths by ordering that their legs be broken. Then their bodies could be taken down. 32 So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the two men crucified with Jesus. 33 But when they came to Jesus, they saw that he was already dead, so they didn’t break his legs. 34 One of the soldiers, however, pierced his side with a spear, and immediately blood and water flowed out. 35 (This report is from an eyewitness giving an accurate account. He speaks the truth so that you also may continue to believe.) 36 These things happened in fulfillment of the Scriptures that say, “Not one of his bones will be broken,” 37 and “They will look on the one they pierced.”
38 Afterward Joseph of Arimathea, who had been a secret disciple of Jesus (because he feared the Jewish leaders), asked Pilate for permission to take down Jesus’ body. When Pilate gave permission, Joseph came and took the body away.39 With him came Nicodemus, the man who had come to Jesus at night. He brought about seventy-five pounds of perfumed ointment made from myrrh and aloes. 40 Following Jewish burial custom, they wrapped Jesus’ body with the spices in long sheets of linen cloth. 41 The place of crucifixion was near a garden, where there was a new tomb, never used before. 42 And so, because it was the day of preparation for the Jewish Passover and since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there.
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!
There is something for everyone, so bring your friends and family along! In the Kid's Wing, we will have a full program of engaging & fun activities for children 0 to Grade 5.
Every seat at our services in our auditorium represents an opportunity for God to change someone's life. Everyone's welcome, so who are you bringing with you this Easter?

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.
