LATE SUMMER SERIES
As we wrap up the summer, we will look at 5 "Christian Urban Legends" that are sometimes uttered as if true.  We will look at what it seems people want to say and then explore what God's Word really says.  You are welcome to join us each Sunday at 9:30 am as we discover together what the Bible really says as opposed to trite phrases and cliches that often hurt more than they help.
Coming Fall of 2018!
Some times the old adage that "the more things change, the more they remain the same" is really true.  It seems like from the beginning of time humans have sought to find the ultimate sense of peace, and freedom, and meaning in life.  That search has led some to try to amass wealth.  Others have looked for their purpose in pleasure.  Others have sought knowledge.  And yet time after time when we look at the lives of those searching we see a longing for more because what was thought would bring satisfaction, comes us short.  Some times life just seems meaningless.   This Fall we will work our way through the book of Ecclesiastes in a sermon series we are calling "Chasing the Wind."   This phrase comes from the book of Ecclesiastes.  The problem with Chasing the wind is that if you think you have caught it, nothing is there.  Where do we find meaning and purpose?  The Wise "preacher" of Ecclesiastes tells us that we are to "remember our creator."  Join us each Sunday at 9:30 am  as we discover the emptiness of chasing the wind compared to the deep satisfaction of living in relationship with the Creator of the universe.
 

Sermons

If I give 10% will God make me wealthy, right?
Some people look at God as an investment plan. They donate a percentage of income and God gives a return on their investment. But why is that not the case for every person? Where in the Bible are we commanded to tithe? What is God’s standard for giving? What does God promise me when I give? We will try to unravel this Christian Urban Legend.

    Aug 5, 2018
    “If I Have Faith I can do anything…right?”
    Sometimes it seems people treat faith as a magic wand. We just wave it and God answers. Other times it can be used as a club to make God do what we want. So what is faith and how do we exercise it? We must be careful to trust God and not demand of God. How do I apply the passages regarding moving mountains and asking what we want from God?
  • Jul 29, 2018Does the Bible Teach that I must Forgive and Forget?
    Jul 29, 2018
    Does the Bible Teach that I must Forgive and Forget?
    C.S. Lewis wrote: “Everyone says forgiveness is a lovely idea, until they have something to forgive...” (Mere Christianity p. 104). When we add to that reminder the idea that we must forgive and forget if we are to be Christlike, then forgiveness seems almost impossible. It is important to understand what forgiveness is, what it is not, and how to apply it. Then we can correct the false notion that we are to forgive and forget.

     

  • Jul 22, 2018Everything Happens for A Reason…or does it? (Jeremiah 29:11; Romans 8:28)
    Jul 22, 2018
    Everything Happens for A Reason…or does it? (Jeremiah 29:11; Romans 8:28)
    Does God manipulate situations and circumstances? Did God cause me to get sick and lose my job? Is it possible that some things just happen? As we think through the common statement “Everything happens for a reason” we have questions. For the Christ Follower they are questions about the sovereignty of God. We don’t know the mind of God but we have the Word of God for guidance.
  • Jul 15, 2018Do Everything In Love (1 Cor 16:13-14)
    Jul 15, 2018
    Do Everything In Love (1 Cor 16:13-14)
    As the Apostle Paul wraps up his letter to the Corinthian church it seems that v. 14 stands out as the key reality. It is love that will compel the church to be generous, love that will guide them to listen to and follow leadership, and love that will truly refresh others. Ultimately, it is love that will unite this church if they so choose.
  • Jul 8, 2018Eternal Makeover (1 Cor 15:35-58)
    Jul 8, 2018
    Eternal Makeover (1 Cor 15:35-58)
    In some way, shape or form, we will each be changed. Our bodies that we have now are designed for this world. God will give us new bodies. Therefore, we do not need to fear the future or worry about physical death. Knowing what is coming should free us to serve fully right now.
  • Jul 1, 2018Why Resurrection matters; even when it isn’t Easter
    Jul 1, 2018
    Why Resurrection matters; even when it isn’t Easter
    Resurrection is important to anyone who follows Jesus. Resurrection is important to the whole of the Christian faith. The resurrection of Jesus, proves our faith. The resurrection of Jesus gives us hope. The resurrection of Jesus holds us accountable for how we live as we will one day see him face to face. The fact is you and I need resurrection.
  • Jun 24, 2018Decently and In Order (1 Cor 14)
    Jun 24, 2018
    Decently and In Order (1 Cor 14)
    A local church is a unit and each person is a significant part of the whole. A local church is to operate from a heart motivation of godlike love. Therefore, it stands to reason that when a church gathers, that there is a clear sense of that love and unity throughout the time of meeting. When people who claim to know Jesus, have gatherings that are characterized by chaos and strife, then the love and unity Jesus called for is destroyed and outsiders will be chased away.
  • Jun 17, 2018“A More Excellent Way” (1 Cor, 12:31b-13:13)
    Jun 17, 2018
    “A More Excellent Way” (1 Cor, 12:31b-13:13)
    It is not always what someone does that makes an impact, but it is also the deep inner motivation that drives the act. If you have ever been upset that an act of kindness was not equally reciprocated, check your motive. If you have ever hoped that someone would notice your service in the church, check your motive. We learn today that the purest motive for the Christ follower is a God centered love.
  • Jun 10, 2018Many yet One (1 Cor. 12:12-31a)
    Jun 10, 2018
    Many yet One (1 Cor. 12:12-31a)
    In an extended metaphor using the unique make-up of the human body the Apostle Paul makes the point that the local gathering of those who follow Christ should operate in the same way. Each individual part making its contribution to the good of the whole. Every person in a local church is important, and contributes to the health of the whole.

 
 
 
 

 

Our Purpose

Our Mission: Loving God and Loving Others as Together we Follow Jesus Christ.
 
Pleasant Hill Community church was established to serve our community.
The Bible says in I Peter 4:10-11
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.
 
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.

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.
