Dear Redwood Family,
There are times when we face especially difficult moments. This past week has been an incredibly painful and challenging time for so many of us, as we heard the news about the death of someone who was very well known in our community.
Our hearts are broken and this raises so many questions for all of us. Questions that need answers. Questions that deserve answers.
At this point in time, we are unable to share any information due to an ongoing investigation that is currently underway. We will share more information when we are able to do so.
What I can tell you is that for anyone who is hurting right now, please know that we are here for you and that we are standing with you.
As we experience our hurt and pain and confusion, it will be important that we lean in together as a church community. That we offer our support to each other and help each other find hope in God’s goodness.
In hope we know that nothing we are facing today is greater than God. In hope we know that God’s goodness will aways triumph over today’s darkness.
Joel Enyart // Lead Pastor
We understand that the heaviness of this past week has been overwhelming and emotional. We encourage anyone that needs to talk to someone to make an appointment with a counsellor to seek healing & understanding, and we want to provide the following counselling resources to our community:
Student Counselling Night
On Tuesday August 21st from 7-9pm, a licensed counsellor from Thunder Bay Counselling Centre will be hosting a group session in Room 7 at Redwood for any High School, College, & University age students that need to process and debrief. Please note that the purpose of this meeting is not an information session, but an opportunity for students to work through the confusion and grief they may be experiencing.
Walk-In Counselling Services
There is free, confidential counselling services every Wednesday from 12pm-8pm, available on a walk-in basis, at the following locations:
Thunder Bay Counselling Centre (Every 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month)
Children's Centre (Every 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month)
Everyone is Welcome. Nobody is Perfect. Anything is Possible.
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 our Summer Sunday service on Sundays at 10:30am.
