2017 Sermons

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.

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).

    When It All Came Crashing Down (2) Genesis 3:10-24
    God will not let sin go unpunished. The punishments meted out by God in Genesis 3 continue to plague our world and our lives. We wrestle against evil in so many forms. We find strife in relationships, pain in the natural processes of life and work is often more of a drudgery than a delight. And in the middle of it all we see glimmers of God’s grace.
  • Feb 5, 2017When it all came crashing down (Gen. 3:1-9)
    Feb 5, 2017
    When it all came crashing down (Gen. 3:1-9)
    One solitary act of disobedience brought death in all of its forms to all. Every relationship was damaged. Relationship with God, relationship with fellow humans, and relationship with nature was marred. Today will not be a feel good sermon but it will be one from which we can learn. Satan’s tactics have not changed much over the years, only the voices. How can we be alert and ready?
  • Jan 29, 2017Created for Relationship (Gen. 2:17-25)
    Jan 29, 2017
    Created for Relationship (Gen. 2:17-25)
    We were created for relationship. Relationship with God and relationship with one another. The foundational relationship in order to initially fulfill the command to be fruitful and increase is that of husband and wife. And yet in that fundamental relationship we learn much about who God has created us to be. We are dependent upon God and live interdependently with one another.
  • Jan 22, 2017Rest, Worship, and Obedience (Gen 2:1-17)
    Jan 22, 2017
    Rest, Worship, and Obedience (Gen 2:1-17)
    The Creation Account gives us a sense of order for living. Part of that order for living is to rest, to cease work. Part of that order has to do with our relationship with God which includes worship and obedience. When we have a rhythm of work, rest, worship, and obedience we find a completeness and a satisfaction in our life and relationship with our Creator.

    Created to Reign Responsibly
    Series: Advent 2016
    As human beings created in the imaged and likeness of God we each have a divine responsibility. We are tasked with developing a civilization and harnessing all the raw materials in this world in such a way that God is glorified. This has not happened in a good way due to sin. There have been abuses throughout history, and yet we still have a God-given responsibility to be people who manage what God has given us.

 
 
 
 

 

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.
