        The new areas of Bradford need our prayers! God has called Promise Church to foreshadow the fulfillment of God’s promises in those neighborhoods. Adopt-a-Street is our church committing to pray for our community and sharing an experience united to fulfill our mission.

        STEP 1: COMMIT

        We will be handing out an interactive booklet to every member of our congregation leading them to commit to adopting a street.

        STEP 2: ADOPT

        You will choose a street in the specified neighbourhood in need of adoption.

        STEP 3: PRAY

        Along with the other members of Promise Church, you will walk through a process of prayer and mission, reflecting on God’s work in each neighbourhood, and sharing it with the rest of our church community.

        WHEN?

        Booklets will be handed out on March 21, and the process will begin on March 28.

        IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

        COVID-19 restrictions have unfortunately limited our gathering numbers again. We hope to continue at some point in the next year. Please stay alert for details during the coming weeks.

        MESSAGE TEXTS: 

        Galatians 4:8-20 (English Standard Version)

        Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods. But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?10 You observe days and months and seasons and years! 11 I am afraid I may have labored over you in vain. 12 Brothers, I entreat you, become as I am, for I also have become as you are. You did me no wrong. 13 You know it was because of a bodily ailment that I preached the gospel to you at first, 14 and though my condition was a trial to you, you did not scorn or despise me, but received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus. 15 What then has become of your blessedness? For I testify to you that, if possible, you would have gouged out your eyes and given them to me. 16 Have I then become your enemy by telling you the truth? 17 They make much of you, but for no good purpose. They want to shut you out, that you may make much of them. 18 It is always good to be made much of for a good purpose, and not only when I am present with you,19 my little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you! 20 I wish I could be present with you now and change my tone, for I am perplexed about you.

        SERMON NOTES:

        • Every human being develops beliefs of the world as they grow.
          • What did you believe?
          • How effective were those beliefs for bringing you to God?
          • Consider what you learned about Jesus.
          • What happened to you when you first received the message of Jesus?
        • The gospel is the story of God coming to you.
          • Consider what you are being led into.
          • Jesus comes and changes people’s very real core belief system.
          • The gospel does not affirm where you came from, it affirms Jesus regardless of where you came from.
        • If Jesus does not make you uncomfortable in some way, we may need to look at him closer.
          • Let Jesus challenge your positions and make you uncomfortable.

          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
