At Promise Church we value giving families the opportunity to worship together during our service! If you have young children, you will be able to sign them in and drop them off to our kid’s program following worship, during our brief break!
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 “Get Connected” tab above talk to Pastor Victoria directly!

Promise Groups go out into our community and find places to serve and improve it. As a group, we spend time watching videos together that help us take an idea of service and turn it into a reality. From here, we invite others to join along with us as we take steps towards improving our community. Click on the “Join a Group” button in the “Promise Group” tab below to find a group near you!
If you are interested in helping out with events, suggesting new ideas, or help organizing we invite you to join our conversations on Slack.
QUESTION 1: “If we read Matthew 5:13-16 with ‘you’ as a plural, what does this verse mean for corporate evangelism?”
Matthew 5:13-16 (ESV)
13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
QUESTION 2: “We’ve talked about the ‘Promise Church Grant Program’ as our primary form of corporate evangelism. What questions do you have regarding this program?“
QUESTION 3: “Promise Church has said that the Gospel in five words is, ‘Jesus is God with us.’ In what ways might this be good news for an unchurched person?”
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.
Promise Youth is Promise Church’s youth group. We aim to have a lot of fun together, but also grow in our the understanding and the practice of our faith in Jesus.
We will learn and discuss hard things about God and have space to ask really tough questions about the Bible… stuff like: Can I trust this Bible? Is Christianity too restrictive for my social life? Why is this world so messed up? How do I hear from God? We will also navigate practices of great leaders that teach us how we can excel in this world.
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.
