COVID-19 Updates

Redwood Park Church started the process of re-opening our building and programs in stages. We have been following government protocols in order to make sure that we don’t just keep our church safe, but the entire community of Thunder Bay. We’ve had to adjust to changing government guidelines as medical professionals learn more about COVID-19, sometimes on a weekly basis. It has been an incredible season of learning and re-training for the staff and our volunteers. Our mission has not changed, we've simply adapted to move forward in a manner that is safe, effective, and better suited to meet the growing needs of our community.


----------

Update (November 12, 2020):  We shared with you our 5-Stage Redwood Re-Opening Plan, with the caution that at any point, we might have to move back to Stage 1, where we go back to online programs and services. Over the past few weeks, there has continued to be a significant uptake in Covid-19 cases in Thunder Bay. 


Due to the size of our Redwood Park Church community, we want to be proactive to help stop the spread. As a precautionary measure, we have decided to temporarily move back to Stage 1 and postpone all of our in-person programs and services. We will continue to have a live stream service on Sundays at 10:30am.
