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!

SESSION 1: “In Hebrews 6:1-12 the writer is encouraging the listener to take seriously the argument of Jesus’ superiority. What do these verses mean for my day-to-day Christian life?“
Hebrews 6:1-12 (ESV)
1 Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3 And this we will do if God permits. 4 For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt. 7 For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God. 8 But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed, and its end is to be burned. 9 Though we speak in this way, yet in your case, beloved, we feel sure of better things—things that belong to salvation. 10 For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do. 11 And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
SESSION 2: “Since Jesus is superior to all other religious means to build contact and relationship with God, what is left for me to do in my world as a Christian? Where do I spend my time, energy, and devotion?“

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 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.
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.
