Advent at Pleasant Hill Community Church
The themes for Advent 2018 are Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love.  These terms are each packed with meaning.  We live in a time in which we hear of political unrest, division in our country, racism, classism, and fear.  We need hope, not just a wish for a better tomorrow, but an eager expectation based on fact, our hope is not based on human solutions but God with us, Jesus Christ.  We need peace.  More than a treaty or an agreement, we each need peace in the depth of our being.  Jesus is the Prince of Peace who gives us his peace.  Available to us in so many forms is comedy.  But comedy that makes us laugh is not as deep as joy.  Joy found in Jesus is a depth of confidence that comes from the hope and peace we have in him.  It is all bound together in Love.  God loved us so much that he sent his son Jesus.  Jesus loves us so much that he was willing to die on the cross for our sins.  Love, we are told in God’s word will never end.  Join us each Sunday in December, to discover the gifts of Advent.

Peace on Earth
Series: Advent 2018
Peace is far more than the absence of conflict. Peace has to do with one’s well being. Peace is when there is harmony in relationship. Peace is not about circumstances but about the heart. Jesus came to bring peace, between God and humanity. Once we have peace with God, we find that we have peace with one another.

    Hope for All – Isaiah 40
    Series: Advent 2018
    Hope. It is a word we use a great deal. Last week children were hoping for a snow day. Parents were hoping for school. We hope our team wins. We have many things that we hope for. But the hope that comes from Jesus is far greater than a wish. Christlike hope is a confident expectation based on the reality of who God is. The birth of Jesus is hope fulfilled, as well as hope for the future.

    More Than Just One Day A Year
    Being thankful is an important characteristic of one who follows Jesus. Thankfulness is to be part of our daily lives, part of the attitude with which we face the world. As we look at a survey of this mindset in the Bible, we will see it is more than an idealistic way of looking at the world. It is a mindset that will impact every relationship.

    Remember Your Creator…today
    Life is short. That is especially true as one gets older and looks back. The Teacher and the narrator draw similar conclusions after all has been considered. The most important thing is to know and focus on God our creator while we have breath. In fact, the younger the better. Only God gives meaning and purpose to what all to often seems meaningless. Remember your Creator.

    Living in the Real World (surrounded by fools)
    In this life under the sun, reputations are fragile, people ill-equipped end up in leadership positions, and we all take risks. The Teacher looks at all of this with a bit of cynicism and seems to promote a “live and let live” view point. We will let all of scripture guide us as we seek to make sense of these observations.

    Living on Borrowed Time – Eccl 9
    Believe it or not we are in November. Time is really short. How does the fact that time is short, affect your daily decisions? Do you live in fear or in making the most of the time God has given you today? The fact that we all live on borrowed time should actually energize us to use our time wisely. What is the most important thing you can do for God today?

    Take note of the signs on the journey of life
    Because each human being is created in the image of God, a person, like The Teacher, who looks at life “under the sun” can still make wise observations. In this passage we will draw some practical observations from The Teacher and apply them to twenty-first century living.

    Living in Paradox – Eccl 7:1-14
    Consider the following: “the first shall be last;” “to be great you need to be a servant;” “consider it all joy when you face various trials.” These are paradoxical statements that we can find in the Bible. A paradox should make us step back and think about the truth that is being presented. In our passage today we will see several paradoxes that may help us adjust our thinking.

    Approach with Caution Eccl 5:1-7
    How do you get ready to come to church? Oh yes we all choose our outfit. But what about our mindset? How do we prepare to join with others in turning our focus to God? Besides that, have you ever made a promise to God? Did you keep it? The Teacher reminds us each to take God seriously.

    The Value of Community (Ecclesiastes 4:7-12)
    Our digital age has provided opportunity for more and more people to be isolated. But God did not create us to live in isolation, but to live in community. The Teacher considers the importance of the most basic form of community, two people supporting one another. He leaves us with a mystery as we strive to understand the third strand. Today we will consider the value of community.
 
 
 
 

 

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.
 
 
 
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.
