Welcome To Pleasant Hill Community Church

 
Thank you for stopping by 
As you take a look around, let us know if you have any questions or how we can better serve you.
Contact us at Info@phcch.org
 
 
 
How can you and I live in a way in which we accurately represent Jesus in the 21st Century?  In a time in which there seem to be more divisions outside, and even within the church, what would it really look like to be characterized by oneness?  You know, the kind of oneness Jesus prayed for in John 17:20-21.  This year Pastor Scott will lead us in a sermon series based on the book of 1 Corinthians.  The city of Corinth was a large, multicultural city.  It was a wealthy city.  Some scholars have discovered that it was one of the very few cities in the ancient world that even had a "middle class."  In many ways the city of Corinth socially, morally, economically, and religiously, parallels much of our culture today.  In fact even the church in Corinth was not a united church but a divided one. 
 
We will look to learn positive lessons for living a Christ centered, unified life in such a world, from the example of a church that did not do so well.  As our study unfolds we will tackle difficult questions and even walk through what some would call "thorny issues."  Our prayer is that we will find the joy in a true oneness with one another, centered on the person of Jesus.
 
Please join us each Sunday morning at 9:30 AM as we gather to corporately worship our God and learn from the Bible.  You can also listen to each sermon on our podcast or download from this website.

You Can’t Be Serious! (1 Cor. 5)
There are no two ways about it. The Corinthian church did some things that were messed up. This chapter may take the prize for being messed up. Paul’s corrective here is to separate from people who claim to follow Christ and yet blatantly live a life of sin. However, we should seek to  understand and engage our culture that does not yet know Christ. The Corinthian church seems to have mixed up this concept. Before I am too hard on the Corinthian church , I need to ask myself, “Where am I possibly living a double standard?”

    Rearranging Priorities (1 Cor. 4:8-21)
    Our actions and our attitudes reveal the truth about our priorities. Our priorities then guide all our decisions. The Corinthian church focused on their idea of celebrities and personalities. They placed a premium on personal pride. In our passage today we will see how putting Christ first, living in unity and following godly examples will go far in rearranging our priorities.
  • Feb 4, 2018God’s Measure of Success (1 Cor 4:1-7)
    Feb 4, 2018
    God’s Measure of Success (1 Cor 4:1-7)
    What is your measure of success? How do you define success? The Corinthian church in 57 A.D. had in many ways adapted to ideals that exist in 2018. Success was measured by wealth and popularity. What we will discover in our passage today is that God’s measurement of success is quite simple. The fact is God makes it possible for anyone to be successful in His eyes.
  • Jan 28, 2018Just Grow Up (1 Cor. 3)

    Just Grow Up (1 Cor. 3)
    Cubs or Sox? Bears or Packers? Patriots or Eagles? In reality these questions are mere preferences. They should never be the issues over which we draw lines of divisions. In fact we would say that it is immature to draw such lines. And yet it happens. In our passage today we find that the overall cry from the Apostle Paul is for the Corinthian church to just grow up and make sure that Jesus is the center of all they do and all they hold dear.
  • Jan 21, 2018Spiritual Eyes to See Spiritual Realities (1 Cor 2)
    Jan 21, 2018
    Spiritual Eyes to See Spiritual Realities (1 Cor 2)
    Sometimes we are united by common experiences and circumstances. As he called the Corinthian church to unity, Paul reminded them that when the Spirit of God indwells us, because of our faith in Jesus, then there are some things we grasp that are not fully understood by those who have not yet trusted Jesus. This is should not cause us to be arrogant, but it should draw us together in community.
  • Jan 14, 2018Keeping It Simple (1 Cor 1:18-31)
    Jan 14, 2018
    Keeping It Simple (1 Cor 1:18-31)
    Are you on a journey that leads to the message of the cross? Or are you on a journey that is determined by your own standards? The Apostle Paul reminds his readers and us that the core message of the cross, is the first and only message in being right with God.  All other attempts to reach God will come up empty.
  • Jan 7, 2018Can’t We Just Get Along (1 Cor. 1:1-17)
    Jan 7, 2018
    Can’t We Just Get Along (1 Cor. 1:1-17)
    Outside of Rome, the city of Corinth, located on an isthmus between mainland Greece and the Peloponnesus Peninsula was arguably one of the most important cities in the first century. It controlled a major trade route and as a result became a large city with a cosmopolitan population. It was the capital of the provincial government of the area so it was politically important. It was also a city that was known for its immorality and pluralistic culture. Often what happened in Corinth stayed in Corinth. Yet it was here that the Apostle Paul spent 18 months in ministry. It is to the church in this city that Paul writes to call them to a Christ centered oneness. There is much we can learn in this study as we begin 2018.

    A Standard for Evaluation (1 Peter 4:7-11)
    As we stand at the threshold of a new year and at a time for transition for Pleasant Hill Community Church it is important to measure our effectiveness. Pastor Scott shows us the importance of faithfulness in serving our Lord. He also celebrates Ethan Reynolds as an example of faithfulness as our Youth Director for the past two years.
  • Dec 24, 2017Discovering the Heart of Christmas: Promise (Luke 1:53-55)
    Dec 24, 2017
    Discovering the Heart of Christmas: Promise (Luke 1:53-55)
    Every brightly wrapped package is a promise. A promise of a need met. A promise of a want fulfilled. And yet for every promise kept all to many of us are fully aware of the pain of promises broken. As humans we make promises but cannot fully control the circumstances to fulfill every made promise. But God can. God did. God does. The birth of Jesus is a promise kept and all humanity benefits.

    Discovering the Heart of Christmas: Humility
    God knows us at the core of our being. He is fully aware of our deepest thoughts. And so he knows exactly what to allow into our lives to bring us to a point of being willing to serve Him and others. God is not impressed by human displays of power and wealth. He uses the humble to do great things for his kingdom. We see God’s power in humility as we examine the words of his humble servant Mary.

 
 
 
 

 

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.

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.
