Current Sermon Series
 
 
 
No matter who Fall 2016 Sermon Graphic(2)we are, we have faced difficulties in life.  Sometimes we call these “storms.”  Storms are very real like hurricanes, tornadoes, or floods.  Storms are relational like abuse, or loneliness,   Storms are physical as we face disease.  Storms are deep within us such as loss, grief, or even mental illness.  The question is so often asked, “Where is God?”   In this series we will look at the storms we all face and discover that God is there in more ways than we could imagine.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Our Purpose

Our Mission: Leading people who are far from God to become fully engaged followers of Jesus Christ.
 
PHCC was established to serve our community.
The Bible says in I Peter 4:10-11 “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.”
 
All PHCC Ministries are driven by the following purpose statement:
 
Together we are working to:
Proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Honor God in ALL We Do. 
Connect in Relationship.
Care for the Needs of Our Community.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

PHCC MINISTRIES

We endeavor to minister to the whole family.  We begin as early as possible to teach children about God who loves them.  We seek to apply the lessons of the Bible to each age group in age appropriate ways.  Our childcare workers and volunteers are screened so that we do our best to provide a safe and secure learning environment.  We also offer ministry to Middle School and High School Students.  We involve all ages in our adult ministry.

Missions

Pic44We view missions as a major ministry of Pleasant Hill Community Church. The vision and goal of Missons is to carry out the command of Christ’s Great Commission as we partner with individuals and agencies to make disciples of all nations.
 
Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
 
PHCC currently partners with 12 Missionaries and their families worldwide. We have a primary focus to raise up individuals from our own congregation to be active in making disciples globally. To that end 5 of our 12 Missionary families have formative roots in our church.  We also partner with two local organizations, Life Spring Women’s Ministry in Aurora, IL and World Relief DuPage/Aurora.. below are the mission organizations with whom we are ministry partners and links to their web sites.

How can a church respond to mental illness?
worship-09-25-2016We don’t like what we can’t fully understand. Sometimes we feel like David in Psalm 142, alone and in a cave with no one to help us. When families face mental illness of any kind, life can feel that way. In this interview we will learn from from the experiences of others that the faith community should be the place of safety, acceptance, and healing.  From their experiences courageously shared Pastor Scott draws six practical principles.  (This interview has been edited out of respect for the families courageous enough to share their story with us.)

    Does God Care That I Was Hurt?
    worship-09-18-2016Sometimes we are hurt by another inadvertently. But unfortunately in a fallen world some are hurt by another on purpose. Abuse in any form is the ultimate betrayal and can lead to the deepest hurt. Today we will explore this most difficult topic and learn that God cares, God knows, and God can help victims become victors. As the church we can be God’s agents of compassion and healing.

    Seeing God in Natural Disasters
    worship-09-11-2016Hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, flooding, wildfires, have all been on the news in the past 9 months. Where is God during these tragedies? Why doesn’t he stop them? We will explore natural disasters and the ways we do see God through these most difficult times today. We will learn some very important lessons about our hopes, our confidence, and our priorities.

    Refocusing on God
    Attributes of God Church PowerPointA.W. Tozer wrote in Knowledge of the Holy, "We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God" (Tozer, 7). The question then becomes where that mental image originates. Pastor Scott reminds us that we must let the Bible help us think rightly about God.

    Rethinking Church as Community

    Worship 08-28-2016When you see or hear the word “church” what comes to mind?  For many of us the first thing we think about is a building or a place where we gather to worship God.  But interestingly enough, that idea is no where to be found in the New Testament.  It is important that we work to rethink church so that our idea of church is in line with God’s concept of church.

    Making It Personal
    Book of 2 Timothy PowerPoint Template (1)After almost 8 months and 29 sermons we come to the end of this journey through the Pastoral Epistles.  In the final words of 2 Timothy we find the Apostle Paul expressing himself in very personal terms.  We see loneliness and despair, mixed with hope and an awareness of God's presence.  It seems that we can each relate to that emotional tension.  Like Paul it is best to cling to God when nothing else makes sense.
  • Aug 14, 2016Final Words (2 Tim. 4:1-8)

    Final Words (2 Tim. 4:1-8)
    Worship 08-14-2016In the final chapter of 2 Timothy, there is a sense of both urgency and confidence in Paul’s words . It is the stuff of a commanding officer to his soldiers before a decisive battle. It is the power of a coach rallying his team at half time. It is a father expressing his confidence and love as his son strikes out on his own. In these final words of Paul to Timothy there are some important lessons for each of us.
  • Aug 7, 2016Go with what you know (2 Tim 3:10-17)

    Go with what you know (2 Tim 3:10-17)
    Worship 08-07-2016Sometimes new is not always better. Sometimes, it is important to remember the lessons we have learned and stick with them as we go through life. In this passage the Apostle Paul reminds Timothy to remember what he has observed, continue in what he already knows, and stay true to the knowledge from Scripture he already has. In this he will be useful, successful, and equipped to serve where God places him.

    Navigating Cultural Whitewater (2 Tim 3:1-9)
    Worship 07-31-2016At what point in the history of our world after Genesis 3 have things been perfect? We live in a fallen world that is increasingly moving away from the cross both in time and in attitude. It should not surprise us. We look at a depressing list in the Bible today and our first response should be to look in the mirror of our own soul and make sure we are following Jesus and not the drift of the world in which we live.

    Majoring on the Majors (2 Tim 2:14-26)
    Worship 07-24-2016Sometimes we have a tendency to emphasize issues that are not really emphasized in God’s Word. Sometimes we think if we just have the right data and the best delivery that we can argue a person into believing in Jesus. Today we learn that God wants us to pay attention to basic truth, live a life that reflects him and be respectful and gentle with everyone. Quite frankly, that is a very relieving prospect.
