How did we get here?  Why are we here?  What is my purpose?  What is God's plan?  
 
These are all questions we ask as we ponder our place in this world.  We want to know our origins, our purpose, and a bit about our future.  In the book of Genesis, we learn about God and his plan as we discover how he deals with people in both righteousness and grace.  Along the way we will discover together practical and foundational realities that will enable us to better understand our faith.  
 
Join us each Sunday at 10:00 AM as Pastor Scott leads us through the book of Genesis.

 

Our Purpose

Our Mission: Loving God and Loving Others as we Follow Jesus Christ Together.
 
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.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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.

It’s All About God (Genesis 1)
Series: Advent 2016
worship-01-08-2017Ancestory.com has made millions from people who want to know their family tree. We want to know from where we have come. We long to know our source and family history. The most simplistic answer is also the most complex, we all come from God. He as the creator, originated the human race. Genesis is more than a book of beginnings, it is a book about God, our source and the foundation for our faith.

    Three Goals for 2017
    Series: Advent 2016
    horizons-1280x960Sometimes when we set goals for a new year we make them very elaborate and detailed. Today we will look at three goals for our church and our individual lives that are stated simply and yet will take all we have to live them out. In striving for these goals we will individually and collectively be living in obedience to our Lord. Simply stated the goals are Love God and others, Follow Jesus, Make. Disciples.

    The Gift of Love (1 John 4:9-12)
    Series: Advent 2016
    worship-12-18-2016Love may involve emotion but it is more than that. Love is a choice, a decision, made for the benefit of another, expecting nothing in return. God loves us so he made a decision. He chose to enter our world, to stoop to our level, to become human. We celebrate that act of love at this time of year. Jesus, the God man loved us and willingly laid down his life for us. The Holy Spirit loves us and willingly indwells and guides and teaches those of us who put our faith in Jesus. Love is a gift. If you have received that gift, then look for ways to pass it on.

    The Secret of Joy (Luke 2:8-11; John 15:9-11)
    Series: Advent 2016
    worship-12-11-2016Good news of great joy. There was great joy a couple of months ago when the Cubs won the World Series. People talked about coming together and focusing on that which was positive etc. etc. Is that the great joy of the Bible? How can we have joy when we go through struggles (see James 1:2)? While joy encompasses happiness, maybe, just maybe it is just a bit deeper. On this third Sunday of Advent we explore the secret of joy.

    The Mystery of Peace (Isaiah 9:6; John 14:27)
    Series: Advent 2016
    worship-12-04-2016A brief look around our nation and we are fully aware of the elusive nature of peace. Wildfires ravage pristine forests. Protests and unrest over many issues. People attacked on college campuses and in urban neighborhoods. Is it possible that real peace is a myth. On this Sunday of Advent we look carefully at the one called the Prince of Peace. We will discover that real peace begins with relationship.

    Hope for Humanity: Isaiah 40
    Series: Advent 2016
    worship-11-27-2016There are many things for which we hope. We hope our children will turn out well. We hope we will do well on an exam. We hope our team will win. We hope we can get off work for a special event. But the hope offered by God and realized by the birth of Jesus Christ is more than a wish or a desire. It is an eager expectation of a reality based on the evidence that God is able to bring about his purposes. In Jesus we discover hope for humanity.

    Does God Really Understand? Isaiah 53:1-3; Hebrews 2:14-18
    worship-11-20-2016No matter what we hear, it seems that it is easy to wonder if God really understands. The fact is, if we really believe the text of the Bible, then we do have a God who is personally aware of what we face in life. In fact it was the plan all along that Jesus would be fully human not just to go through the human experience but also to be the only one who could atone for our sins. God really understands, and more.

    How do I love my neighbor whose lifestyle and identity are different than mine?
    worship-10-30-2016We live in a time in which many believe that we have to accept everyone’s gender identity without reservation, for to do less is to completely reject them. But that is not the message of Jesus. Jesus was full of grace and truth (John 1:14). His example is one of receiving each person first as one created in the image of God. It was on the basis of love and acceptance for who they were as people that Jesus then spoke truth  and transformation into their lives. Today we explore how we can be people who hold to the clear teaching of the Bible and still love our neighbor whose identity and life are vastly different than ours.

    Oct 23, 2016
    “Don’t All Lives Matter to God?”
    worship-10-23-2016Over the past year or so we have been witness to some of the worst that we can be as Americans. Between controversy and protests over police shootings; rhetoric on the campaign trail, and a year in which Chicago has seen over 500 homicides, this has been a hard year. How should we as Christ followers respond? How can we live our lives in a practical way that sends a message that we truly love our neighbor as ourselves? Where does change begin?
