2017 Sermons
genesis-2017-graphic
 
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.

Faith-Walk Lessons
If only our walk of faith could be lived in a straight line. But it is not. It zigs and zags and mainly because we zig and zag. God leads us clearly as long as we continue to focus on him. But when we think we have a better idea, or we need to help God make life work, then we tend to stray. When we come back to what we know to be true we find an amazing reality. God is there waiting and willing to receive us and help us as we choose to follow him.

    Jesus is Still Alive on Monday
    In a technological age we are used to “defaults” and “factory resets.” After all the excitement had died down Peter led some of the disciples back to a “default setting.” They needed to make ends meet and they went back to fishing. But Jesus appeared and he was still alive and it changed everything. What does the risen, living Jesus want to change in your life?

    Word Pictures during the Last Week of Jesus’ Life
    When a person becomes fully aware that their life on this earth is quickly drawing to a close, that are able to discern more readily what the most important things of life really are. As Jesus has his last few days of teaching the crowds and the disciples we find several key themes that he emphasizes.

    When God Wants All of You (Gen. 11:27-12:4)
    God does not negotiate. He doesn’t have to. He sets the terms and we either agree to them or we go our own way. God doesn’t negotiate but he waits. He is patient. He waits for us to discover that going our own way in life, is a mistake. He gives us just enough freedom to trip over our own foolishness. In this passage we discover that God wants all of us and it is then that He can use us far beyond what we could ever imagine.

    The Error or Reducing God (Genesis 11:1-9)
    It seems that humans are constantly trying to re-create God in their own image. It is a common theme among those who choose to not believe that God is the creator and source of all that exists. If God can be more like us, then we can have excuses for doing our own thing. We will see today, that not only were the ancients disobedient, but they tried to bring God down to their own level fallen humanity.

    And So It Begins Again (Gen. 9:18-10:32)

    After the great flood the world is new, but the heart of humans has not changed.  In a mysterious incident we find Noah’s son committing a sin that brings a pronouncement of judgment from Noah.  While the flood cleansed the earth, the heart of humanity remains the same.  But God in his grace offers hope as he promises to dwell with the line of Shem.  His plan for redemption will not be denied.

    A Fresh Start with a New Purpose (Gen. 7:1-9:17)
    With a freshly cleaned and dried world, came some old reminders, new privileges and responsibilities, and a visible promise. Noah and his family were expected to fulfill the original mandate, and be God’s new first family. Once again we are reminded of God’s judgment, mercy, provision, and protection.  He is a God who can be trusted because He keeps his promises.

    God Hits Reset (Genesis 6)
    There comes a time when we hit the reset button. Our phone seems sluggish so we do a soft reset. We don’t like how the video game is going so we hit reset and begin again. As kids we did a “do-over” when we could not agree during a back yard football game. In Genesis 6, things in the world have gotten so bad that God hits, as it were, reset. How bad does it have to get to make God restart his creation? What can we learn about God and us in this passage?

    Stuff we can learn from a genealogy (Gen. 5)

    Why do we have these boring lists of one “begetting” another in the Bible?  Who really cares?  But if that were the only way to prove your citizenship, you would care.  If that were the way to prove your inheritance, you would care.  And the fact is most of us like to know who our ancestors were and from where we have come.  Genealogies remind us that God works through real people, just like us to bring about his plan. We can learn stuff from genealogies.

    When Sin Matured (Genesis 4)
    James reminds us that "...sin, when it is full grown, gives birth to death." (James 1:15). We see that reality between Cain and Abel in Genesis 4. And yet God reveals his grace as his creation, infected by sin, still develops many tools of culture. The only real solution to this dilemma is to call upon the name of the Lord (Genesis 4:26b).

 
 
 
 

 

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.
