Discovering the Heart of Christmas: Mercy (Luke 1:49-50)
It seems that this is a time of year when so many are shown mercy. Organizations that are based on compassion to others see an uptick in charitable giving. People talk about wanting to give back. But what happens in January? Where is the mercy then. If part of the heart of Christmas is mercy, it would seem God wants it to last far beyond one month of the year.

    Discovering the Heart of Christmas: Belief (Luke 1:46-48)
    What would cause a young girl to be willing to have her entire future turned upside down? In the case of Mary it all hinged on what she believed about God. She believed that God was fulfilling an ancient promise and allowing her to be part of the process. Her belief determined her actions and is reflected in her song.

    The Disturbing Results of Ingratitude
    We have just completed a Thanksgiving Holiday. It seems that even a holiday centered around giving thanks has morphed into a time of self-indulgence in many quarters. What happens when we grow ungrateful? How can we safeguard ourselves so that we practice being thankful on a regular basis?  In this sermon we discover 3 traits of ingratitude and learn 3 safeguards that each can apply.

What happens when we grow ungrateful? How can we safeguard ourselves so that we practice being thankful on a regular basis?  In this sermon Pastor Scott shows us 3 results of ingratitude and gives us 3 safeguards we can develop to help us practice thankfulness on a regular basis.

    Following Jesus: Making Disciples
    Here is the difficult thing about commands. We only have two options. To obey or to disobey. Today we look at a command that for many of us is hard to obey because we haven’t learned how. Today we will lay a foundation for what it looks like to be a disciple maker and give you some illustrations from God’s Word. Here is the first tip: First be an engaged follower of Jesus. You will be amazed what God will do as you simply follow Jesus
  • Nov 12, 2017Living as Disciples (Colossians 3:1-17)

    Living as Disciples (Colossians 3:1-17)
    Once you commit to following Jesus, it becomes a daily endeavor. No matter what you do, no matter who you are with, you are to be first and foremost a Christ follower. You and I are to reflect Christ when we are alone when we are with our family when we are at work  and every other waking moment. Have my decisions, my actions, and my thoughts reflected Jesus this past week?
  • Nov 5, 2017Following Jesus: Foundational Realities (John 15:1-17)
    Nov 5, 2017
    Following Jesus: Foundational Realities (John 15:1-17)
    When we think about it, Jesus does so much to give us very basic instructions to help us follow him. In this passage we are told to stay actively connected to him and live in obedience by loving each other. Those are foundational realities that have major implications for daily living.

    Destined for Transformation: The Hope of Discipleship (Romans 12:2)
    What would it look like to embark on a journey of following Jesus every day? What are some outcomes that we could expect so we know we are on the right path. As we look at the whole of Scripture we find two outcomes that can give us perspective. A disciple is obedient. A disciple undergoes transformation as he/she becomes more like Jesus.

    Discipleship Basics (Luke 9:23-25)
    How does one live out what they say they believe?  A word that has been sometimes misused and misunderstood is the term “disciple.” For the next few weeks we are going to explore this term. Since the term "disciple" is used to describe followers of Jesus over 200 times in the New Testament it seems that we should understand what it describes and how it applies to us.  In this sermon we will arrive at a working definition and some examples.

    Baptism & Communion: Why are these practices so important?
    Baptism and communion are common practices for faith systems that claim to follow Jesus. Different meanings are attached to these practices and sometimes we can get confused. Today we will look briefly at these two ordinances and learn why they are important and what they mean to us.

 
 
 
 

 

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.
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.

A cooperative ministry of several local churches, the Christmas Store is an opportunity for low-income families 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 significant savings, that are appropriate and enjoyable for their children.  This unique day honors the parents while offering a low-cost, supportive alternative to retail shopping.    Families receive a special invitation to the one-day Christmas Store where they can purchase Christmas gifts at a savings of 75% off the retail price.  Parents select several new gifts per child, which have been donated by people like you.  Then, volunteers provide gift-wrapping while the parents enjoy Christmas music and refreshments.

To make a gift donation to the Christmas Store click on the following link
