Now more than ever Promise Kids needs your help. As our church continues to grow, so has our children’s ministry. Our plan is to expand the Promise Kids into two separate age categories to help better target our messages at an appropriate age group. In order to this, however, we will need as much help and volunteers as we can get. If you are interested in this, please fill out the appropriate section on the “Find Your Place To Serve” tab above!

GUEST SPEAKER: TIMOTHY KLASSEN
Pastor Tim Klassen is the lead pastor of Niagara Worship Centre. This church is one of the main partnering churches in Promise Church’s first year.
Hebrews 8 (ESV)
1 Now the point in what we are saying is this: we have such a high priest, one who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, 2 a minister in the holy places, in the true tent that the Lord set up, not man. 3 For every high priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices; thus it is necessary for this priest also to have something to offer. 4 Now if he were on earth, he would not be a priest at all, since there are priests who offer gifts according to the law. 5 They serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly things. For when Moses was about to erect the tent, he was instructed by God, saying, “See that you make everything according to the pattern that was shown you on the mountain.” 6 But as it is, Christ has obtained a ministry that is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises. 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion to look for a second. 8 For he finds fault with them when he says: “Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, 9 not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt. For they did not continue in my covenant, and so I showed no concern for them, declares the Lord. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 11 And they shall not teach, each one his neighbor and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.” 13 In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.

Promise Groups are central to what we do at Promise Church. Through Promise Groups, we reach into the heart of our community to serve it and help make it better, by strategizing, socializing, studying and serving together. People want to see things done well, and want to see things made better. Promise groups invite people to join the group for the purpose of doing something to make the community better.
Each promise group will be composed of members of Promise Church and their unchurched friends, neighbours, and coworkers. Our church members will invite others into our promise group process, which involves four or more evenings to socialize with each other, study the word of God through a short video presentation, strategize about what they can do to improve their community, and serve as a group where they see fit. Promise Groups are the gateway into community. In community, a desire for God is created that comes not from guilt, but from a loving offer of a gracious benevolent God.
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 follow the link below and designate your offering to “Promise Church.”
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.
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.
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.
