Advent at Pleasant Hill Community Church
 
 
 
This time of year is sadvent-prepare-for-christ-christmas-powerpointpecial.  It is a time of preparation.  We prepare for family celebrations.  We prepare for travel.  We prepare as we purchase gifts for family and friends.   But were in not for Jesus being born as a baby in Bethlehem 2000 years ago we would not have this season.  So it is important that we also consider how to prepare our hearts.  This year we will focus on the themes of the Advent wreath.  Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace.  It seems that we need these realities this season for than at other times.  Join us each Sunday at 10:00 AM and discover how God can give you hope, love, joy and peace like never before.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Our Purpose

Our Mission: Leading people who are far from God to become fully engaged followers of Jesus Christ.
 
PHCC was established to serve our community.
The Bible says in I Peter 4:10-11 “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.”
 
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.

2016 Christmas Store Outreach

Saturday, December 10, 2016 
A cooperative ministry of Local Area Churches
The Christmas Store is an opportunity for low-income families in our neighborhood to purchase several gifts for their children at a reduced price in a dignifying manner. Our desire is to preserve each family’s dignity by creating an opportunity that would allow them to select gifts, at a significant savings, that are appropriate and enjoyable for their children.  In most cases, these gifts are the only gifts their children will receive. This unique day honors the parents while offering a low-cost, supportive alternative to retail shopping.

The Mystery of Peace (Isaiah 9:6; John 14:27)
Series: Advent 2016
worship-12-04-2016A brief look around our nation and we are fully aware of the elusive nature of peace. Wildfires ravage pristine forests. Protests and unrest over many issues.

We will discover that real peace begins with relationship.

    Hope for Humanity: Isaiah 40
    Series: Advent 2016
    worship-11-27-2016There are many things for which we hope. We hope our children will turn out well. We hope we will do well on an exam. We hope our team will win. We hope we can get off work for a special event. But the hope offered by God and realized by the birth of Jesus Christ is more than a wish or a desire. It is an eager expectation of a reality based on the evidence that God is able to bring about his purposes. In Jesus we discover hope for humanity.

    Does God Really Understand? Isaiah 53:1-3; Hebrews 2:14-18
    worship-11-20-2016No matter what we hear, it seems that it is easy to wonder if God really understands. The fact is, if we really believe the text of the Bible, then we do have a God who is personally aware of what we face in life. In fact it was the plan all along that Jesus would be fully human not just to go through the human experience but also to be the only one who could atone for our sins. God really understands, and more.

    How do I love my neighbor whose lifestyle and identity are different than mine?
    worship-10-30-2016We live in a time in which many believe that we have to accept everyone’s gender identity without reservation, for to do less is to completely reject them. But that is not the message of Jesus. Jesus was full of grace and truth (John 1:14). His example is one of receiving each person first as one created in the image of God. It was on the basis of love and acceptance for who they were as people that Jesus then spoke truth  and transformation into their lives. Today we explore how we can be people who hold to the clear teaching of the Bible and still love our neighbor whose identity and life are vastly different than ours.

    “Don’t All Lives Matter to God?”
    worship-10-23-2016Over the past year or so we have been witness to some of the worst that we can be as Americans. Between controversy and protests over police shootings; rhetoric on the campaign trail, and a year in which Chicago has seen over 500 homicides, this has been a hard year. How should we as Christ followers respond? How can we live our lives in a practical way that sends a message that we truly love our neighbor as ourselves? Where does change begin?

    “God, how come life seems so unfair?” (Psalm 73)
    worship-10-16-2016Maybe it is just me. But it seems that the people who are truly the “good guys” rarely win. It seems that the wealthiest, most successful, and beautiful people could care less about God, or the Bible, or any of the things that we are supposed to care about. Sometimes it is tempting to just live the way the rest of the world lives and see if it is better. Centuries ago a man by the name of Asaph was tempted to think this way and in Psalm 73 we find what he discovered

    Where is God when I grieve over a loss? (Lamentations 3)
    worship-10-09-2016Loss is part of life. We say goodbye to our beloved Kindergarten teacher as we move on to first grade and it is an early lesson on loss. All around us we see loss. Not just the loss of a loved one in death. But loss of possessions, loss of relationships, loss of employment, loss of reputation. Loss leads to grief. We learn from God’s Word that our God understands loss and gives us reminders that he is there and his constant presence and care is something we cannot lose.

    Oct 2, 2016
    Why Doesn’t God Always Heal Us? (2 Corinthians 12:6-10)
    worship-10-02-2016It is really a mystery. A friend or loved one becomes ill and their church family prays. It seems like no time and they are whole and healthy again. But not always. Sometimes, it seems they just get worse. Sometimes the illness drags on. Sometimes they die. Why doesn’t God just heal them? Why does it seem so random? Some are healed some are not. We can find direction in God's Word.

    How can a church respond to mental illness?
    worship-09-25-2016We don’t like what we can’t fully understand. Sometimes we feel like David in Psalm 142, alone and in a cave with no one to help us. When families face mental illness of any kind, life can feel that way. In this interview we will learn from from the experiences of others that the faith community should be the place of safety, acceptance, and healing.  From their experiences courageously shared Pastor Scott draws six practical principles.  (This interview has been edited out of respect for the families courageous enough to share their story with us.)
