Current Sermon Series:
Some times the old adage that “the more things change, the more they remain the same” is really true.  It seems like from the beginning of time humans have sought to find the ultimate sense of peace, and freedom, and meaning in life.  That search has led some to try to amass wealth.  Others have looked for their purpose in pleasure.  Others have sought knowledge.  And yet time after time when we look at the lives of those searching we see a longing for more because what was thought would bring satisfaction, comes us short.  Some times life just seems meaningless.   This Fall we will work our way through the book of Ecclesiastes in a sermon series we are calling “Chasing the Wind.”   This phrase comes from the book of Ecclesiastes.  The problem with Chasing the wind is that if you think you have caught it, nothing is there.  Where do we find meaning and purpose?  The Wise “preacher” of Ecclesiastes tells us that we are to “remember our creator.”  Join us each Sunday at 9:30 am  as we discover the emptiness of chasing the wind compared to the deep satisfaction of living in relationship with the Creator of the universe.

Remember Your Creator…today
Life is short. That is especially true as one gets older and looks back. The Teacher and the narrator draw similar conclusions after all has been considered. The most important thing is to know and focus on God our creator while we have breath. In fact, the younger the better. Only God gives meaning and purpose to what all to often seems meaningless. Remember your Creator.

    Living in the Real World (surrounded by fools)
    In this life under the sun, reputations are fragile, people ill-equipped end up in leadership positions, and we all take risks. The Teacher looks at all of this with a bit of cynicism and seems to promote a “live and let live” view point. We will let all of scripture guide us as we seek to make sense of these observations.

    Living on Borrowed Time – Eccl 9
    Believe it or not we are in November. Time is really short. How does the fact that time is short, affect your daily decisions? Do you live in fear or in making the most of the time God has given you today? The fact that we all live on borrowed time should actually energize us to use our time wisely. What is the most important thing you can do for God today?

    Take note of the signs on the journey of life
    Because each human being is created in the image of God, a person, like The Teacher, who looks at life “under the sun” can still make wise observations. In this passage we will draw some practical observations from The Teacher and apply them to twenty-first century living.
  • Oct 21, 2018Living in Paradox – Eccl 7:1-14

    Living in Paradox – Eccl 7:1-14
    Consider the following: “the first shall be last;” “to be great you need to be a servant;” “consider it all joy when you face various trials.” These are paradoxical statements that we can find in the Bible. A paradox should make us step back and think about the truth that is being presented. In our passage today we will see several paradoxes that may help us adjust our thinking.
  • Oct 14, 2018Approach with Caution Eccl 5:1-7

    Approach with Caution Eccl 5:1-7
    How do you get ready to come to church? Oh yes we all choose our outfit. But what about our mindset? How do we prepare to join with others in turning our focus to God? Besides that, have you ever made a promise to God? Did you keep it? The Teacher reminds us each to take God seriously.
  • Oct 7, 2018The Value of Community (Ecclesiastes 4:7-12)
    Oct 7, 2018
    The Value of Community (Ecclesiastes 4:7-12)
    Our digital age has provided opportunity for more and more people to be isolated. But God did not create us to live in isolation, but to live in community. The Teacher considers the importance of the most basic form of community, two people supporting one another. He leaves us with a mystery as we strive to understand the third strand. Today we will consider the value of community.

    Stopping the Treadmill of Discontent (Ecclesiastes 4,5,6)
    It seems that from the beginning of time as we know it, humanity has had an insatiable desire for some kind of personal prestige bound up in the false promises of wealth and power. We will take some time to look at these themes woven into Ecclesiastes chapters 4, 5, and 6. What we will find is that the way to get off the endless treadmill of these empty pursuits is the unlikely path of surrender.
  • Sep 23, 2018Does anybody really know what time it is? (Ecclesiastes 3)

    Does anybody really know what time it is? (Ecclesiastes 3)
    The teacher writes a beautiful poem describing the order in the universe. And yet he regrets that we still cannot know God’s work. He is frustrated by injustice and by the reality of desiring to know the future but only being able to live in the moment. So we are left with two options: adopt fatalistic materialism or pursue faith in the eternal, creator God who knows far more than we do and has the end game in mind.
  • Sep 16, 2018Never Enough (Ecclesiastes 2)
    Sep 16, 2018
    Never Enough (Ecclesiastes 2)
    What makes you stand in awe and wonder? What intrigues you? It seems as we live in this age of immediate information there is less that stirs wonder in our hearts. In Ecclesiastes Chapter 2 we discover that life lived on its own terms, no matter the pleasure, accumulation, or achievements is still a dead end
 
 
 
 

 

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.
 
 
 
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.

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.
