 Loving God and Loving Others

as together we follow Jesus Christ

 

 

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.

On Hats and Haircuts (1 Cor 11:2-16)
This is one of the most confusing passages in all of Scripture. And yet maybe if we look not at the details but at the overall context we can gain some understanding. We will consider how we show honor to God and to one another, as we maintain order and decorum and see if we can’t learn from this section of God’s Word.

    Walking a Fine Line (1 Cor 10:23-11:1)
    This section of 1 Corinthians wraps up the conversation on freedom. It leaves us with questions to answer: How sensitive am I to others? How do I adjust to help them see God? What would I sacrifice for the good of another? And finally do people really see God in me? Hard questions we each must address as we strive to follow Jesus.

    Let This Be A Lesson To You
    We all have examples in life. Some of our role models are very positive and the kind of people we want to emulate. But there are also people in our world of influence who are very negative and can lead us in a wrong direction. As Paul addresses the topic of freedom he is careful to make sure his readers understand and exercise their freedom with care and humility. We will see from some wrong examples that freedom is not the release from responsibility but is best exercised humbly within clear boundaries.
  • Apr 29, 2018“Freedom and Discipline” (1 Cor 9:19-27)
    Apr 29, 2018
    “Freedom and Discipline” (1 Cor 9:19-27)
    If we are to exercise our freedom in Christ effectively, it will be from a standpoint of self-discipline. Many are familiar with this section because it is where Paul mentions his ability to connect with a variety of people at their level, that is freedom. However, he also uses an athletic analogy to talk about how he works to train himself to do nothing that would get in the way of the clear message of the gospel, that is discipline. We each need both in our lives.
  • Apr 22, 2018“Speaking of My Rights” (1 Cor 9:1-18)
    Apr 22, 2018
    “Speaking of My Rights” (1 Cor 9:1-18)
    Ministering for the cause of Christ was not an easy task for the Apostle Paul. He put up with so many hardships and even false accusations. He also made some very clear and conscience choices that enabled him to freely teach about Christ and not feel beholden to anyone. Paul was willing to give up “rights” that were his by virtue of his position in order to freely preach the gospel. What “rights” could God be calling you and me to give up for his sake?
  • Apr 15, 2018“Are you going to eat that?” (1 Cor 8)
    Apr 15, 2018
    “Are you going to eat that?” (1 Cor 8)
    What cultural practices are okay for a Christian and which one’s should we avoid? There are older members of our congregation who can remember when going to movies or any kind of dancing was considered sinful. For years retail establishments were not open on Sunday. What is right, what is wrong? How do we determine? In this chapter Paul sets up a larger conversation that the real issue is our sensitivity to others as they progress in their life with Jesus.
  • Apr 8, 2018“Wait…What?” (1 Cor 7:25-40)
    Apr 8, 2018
    “Wait…What?” (1 Cor 7:25-40)
    Sometimes there are sections of the Bible that  just seem confusing. This is one of those sections and it requires us to examine the overall context and cultural realities of the original readers.  Paul has spoken about marriage and staying married and being content. Now he will talk about being single and it seems that he is saying it is best to stay single and not get married. What we will discover as we look at this section of his letter to the Corinthian church is that Paul’s message remains consistent. Single or married, we are to be first and foremost committed to serving God.
  • Apr 1, 2018He is Risen! Just at he said! (Matthew 28:1-15)
    Apr 1, 2018
    He is Risen! Just at he said! (Matthew 28:1-15)
    Jesus Christ rose from the dead! We proclaim that amazing event with power and enthusiasm! This is the key to our faith the reality of our hope, the promise of the future. And yet, there have been many from the very beginning, who doubted and sought to disprove the resurrection. In this sermon Pastor Scott looks at resurrection from both sides as Matthew has presented it to us.
  • Mar 25, 2018Why are you crying Jesus? (Luke 19:41-44)
    Mar 25, 2018
    Why are you crying Jesus? (Luke 19:41-44)
    Series: Palm Sunday

    In Luke’s gospel we have a detail about that celebratory ride into Jerusalem that should cause each of us to stop and think.  As he looked out over the city Jesus wept.  What would cause him to be sad on a day of joy and celebration?  What was on Jesus’ mind that others missed?  What can we learn?

     

  • Mar 18, 2018A Fresh View of My Circumstances (1 Cor 7:17-24)
    Mar 18, 2018
    A Fresh View of My Circumstances (1 Cor 7:17-24)
    “If I just had a new job then…” “If I just could move away, then….” “If I just had better neighbors then…” “If my spouse would just understand me then…” One of the realities we need to be reminded of, is that a change of circumstances typically does not change who we are or what we really need in life. In this passage we find Paul shifting the focus from circumstances to heart realities.

 
 
 
 

 

Our Purpose

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

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.
