SESSION 1: “What are the dangers in bartering with God as Jonah did in Jonah 2:5-9?”

Jonah 2:5-9 (English Standard Version)

The waters closed in over me to take my life; the deep surrounded me; weeds were wrapped about my head 6 at the roots of the mountains. I went down to the land whose bars closed upon me forever; yet you brought up my life from the pit, O Lord my God. When my life was fainting away, I remembered the Lord, and my prayer came to you, into your holy temple. Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love. But I with the voice of thanksgiving will sacrifice to you; what I have vowed I will pay. Salvation belongs to the Lord!”

PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS!

SESSION 2: “Last week we received a few text messages and one of them stood out that we’d like to address today.”

Text Message:

“One of the problems with reaching out to the people we believe ‘need Jesus the most’ is that, as a global church, we already carry judgment towards certain people groups. This judgement is then reinforced when we choose to focus on ‘them.’”

PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS!

SESSION 3: “How does Jonah’s story of failure encourage us during our own experience in God’s mission?”

PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS!

Did you miss a message in the series? Were you unable to make it to church this week? We’ve got your back! Our messages are available online through our website as well as Apple and Google Podcasts. Click the link below for access to all of our past messages!

LISTEN TO PAST MESSAGES

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.

JOIN A PROMISE GROUP

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.
