Now more than ever Promise Kids needs your help. As our church continues to grow, so must our children’s ministry. In order to do this, however, we will need as much help and volunteers as we can get.

SERMON TEXTS:

Romans 16:16 (English Standard Version)

16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you.

Hebrews 13:1

1 Let brotherly love continue.

John 13:35

35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

1 Thessalonians 4:9-10

Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another, 10 for that indeed is what you are doing to all the brothers throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more,

SERMON NOTES:

  • Brotherly love as a marker for the church:
    • “Let brotherly love continue” (Hebrews 13:1)
    • “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35)
    • “Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another, for that indeed is what you are doing to all the brothers throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more,” (1 Thessalonians 4:9-10)
  • 3 Expressions of brotherly love at Promise Church:
    1. Reliable presence:
      • Nothing says, “I love you” more than your presence and engagement.
    2. Genuine greetings:
      • The way we greet each other communicates love, indifference, or disdain.
    3. Remember the details:
      • We communicate brotherly love when we remember details.

Promise Groups are central to what we do at Promise Church. Promise Groups are core to what we do at Promise Church.

We all want our lives to be fulfilled, and we believe that living a life devoted to Jesus is the key to that goal. The experience in a Promise Group foreshadows the type of connectivity with others we were created for, while engaging with our larger purpose as part of the body of Christ. There are five things you can expect to happen in a Promise Group that will increase the quality of your week and your relationship with Jesus:

1) Meaningful discussion about a specific Biblical text
2) Closer, consistent friendships
3) Team members for Promise Grants
4) A place to build your ministry capacity
5) Strengthening your spiritual practice

WHY WE GIVE:

Here at Promise Church, we believe that giving is an act of worship, as well as a demonstration of trust in what God is doing in His kingdom. As we give, we demonstrate three things: we demonstrate our trust and faith in God’s provision (giving back to God what He gives us), we emulate his generosity, and we demonstrate that we are not bound to our material possessions.

HOW TO GIVE:

As a church plant, Promise Church is parented by Willowdale Pentecostal Church. Because of this, they act as our financial mediator. In order to give to Promise Church, please fill out the form below and select “Promise Church” from the Fund drop down.

WHY WILLOWDALE PENTECOSTAL CHURCH?

As our major parenting church, Willowdale Pentecostal Church acts as our governing body and legal accountability. This gives us the freedom to shape our ministries, and then establish our individual governing board in line with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, and the vision of what God is calling us to do.

Worship is more than just music and singing on a Sunday morning. Worship is the very way we live. Everything we do becomes an act of worship when it honours God and builds his kingdom. In a corporate setting, music helps us worship together as a body; it encourages us to sing with each other and express our praise to Christ in a way that edifies the church and fosters a united community.

CHURCH SONG LIST:

Because of the necessity of corporate worship, and its purpose in building up our community, we have (and will be maintaining) a playlist that includes all the songs we sing, or are going to be singing, during our Sunday morning services. The purpose of this playlist is to encourage you, the church, to listen to these songs on your own, and to include them in your devotional time.

NOTE:

Songs at the top of the playlist will be reserved for newer songs that have either been recently introduced, or will be introduced in the near future.
