 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.

“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.

    “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.
  • Mar 11, 2018“Love and Marriage and stuff” (1 Cor 7:1-16)
    Mar 11, 2018
    “Love and Marriage and stuff” (1 Cor 7:1-16)
    The Apostle Paul had received a letter asking him about many things that were troubling the church in Corinth. Trying to live for God in a city of ill-repute, with people from all backgrounds wanting to influence the believers was a difficult task. From Paul’s words in this chapter, we can glean some very clear principles as we seek to manage our lives and marriage relationships in God honoring ways, under sometimes trying circumstances.
  • Mar 4, 2018A Call to Purity (1 Cor. 6:12-20)
    Mar 4, 2018
    A Call to Purity (1 Cor. 6:12-20)
    It is one thing to celebrate the fact that we are each created by God. That is truly an amazing reality. As creatures we were designed for a purpose and that is to bring glory to God as we build a culture that reflects who He truly is. As followers of Jesus we often use the metaphor of being the body of Christ. Paul’s challenge to his readers and to us, is to consider carefully how we are reflecting Jesus and the purity to which he calls all of us, in our daily lives.
  • Feb 25, 2018I’ll see you in court! (1 Cor. 6:1-11)
    Feb 25, 2018
    I’ll see you in court! (1 Cor. 6:1-11)
    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. But 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?”
  • Feb 18, 2018You Can’t Be Serious! (1 Cor. 5)

    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?”
  • Feb 11, 2018Rearranging Priorities (1 Cor. 4:8-21)
    Feb 11, 2018
    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.

 
 
 
 

 

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.
Honor God in ALL We Do. 
Connect in Relationship.

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.
