2017 Sermons
genesis-2017-graphic
 
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 9:30 AM as Pastor Scott leads us through the book of Genesis.
 
 
What do we believe about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Bible?
How does what I believe about these things affect how I live my life?
 
This Fall at Pleasant Hill Community Church Pastor Scott will lead us through a study of what we believe and how that should determine how we Follow Jesus.  Join us each Sunday at 9:30 AM for this practical study from God's Word.

“The Big Reveal” (Genesis 42-45)
The day finally came. The dreams he had as a teenager were fulfilled for Joseph. It is in his response to the fulfilled dreams that we learn a bit more as to why God chose this man to be his instrument to save the family of Israel (Jacob). We also learn about how God sometimes works in situations that are less than comfortable.  We learn the godly character qualities that make Joseph stand out as an example to us all.

    Waiting is hard, but worth it (Gen. 40-41)
    Sometimes the hardest thing God asks us to do is to wait. As we learn from the life of Joseph, God always has his plan and it is up to us to wait until He brings it to fruition.

    More Than a Test of Character (Gen. 39)
    Passing a test of character for one who trusts in God is more than human resolve. When we understand and take to heart, that everything we do, say, or think, is done in the presence of God, we have a unique motivation to act in ways that we know please God. In this unique passage we not only see God’s presence, but also God’s fulfilled promise of blessing to the descendants of Abraham.

    Desperate Choices…God’s Grace (Genesis 38)
    God is aware of the fact that some people, by no fault of their own, are put in impossible situations. We meet a young lady named Tamar today. She is in an impossible situation and makes a desperate decision. Little does she know that God will use her, a Canaanite woman, to be his human instrument to preserve the covenant. The God of grace can also work through our desperate choices.

    Transitions (Genesis 35:11-37)
    Change happens, to us as humans. As much as we try we cannot avoid the reality of change. It happens as our children grow. It happens as we grow. But God does not change. God is steady, and constant, and true. When we face times of change we need to learn how to stay focused on our Lord who is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

    God’s Faithfulness v. My Obstacles
    Some obstacles are unavoidable like natural disasters. Other obstacles are self-imposed by poor decisions we sometimes make. Today we see the fallout from a rash decision in contrast to God calling Jacob and his family to return to serving only Him. God proves himself faithful time and time again in spite of the poor choices I tend to make.
  • Jul 9, 2017The Wounds of Mercy and Grace (Gen. 29-32)
    Jul 9, 2017
    The Wounds of Mercy and Grace (Gen. 29-32)
    At over 70 years old Jacob still hasn’t fully figured out what it means to fully follow God. In a series of life events that entail the deceiver being deceived and humiliated, Jacob begins to understand. In the end, the wounds of God’s mercy and grace through life events will begin to soften Jacob. But a face to face encounter with God leaves him walking with a limp and learning dependency.

    Jul 2, 2017
    What About Esau? (Selections from Genesis and Hebrews 12:14-17)
    While the Genesis story shifts its focus to Jacob, there is still the other brother. In our message today we will consider the person of Esau. What about this brother do we see that could reveal to us why God may not have chosen him? What can we learn from Esau?

    Preaching the Gospel To Ourselves (John 10:1-18)
    We live in a spiritually blind age where we are daily confronted with messages that pull us away from God. We encounter this message every day, whether we acknowledge it or not. How can we keep our focus on Christ during these times? Our message today helps us to discern and remember wheat is important in our pursuit of following Jesus. We will look at some aspects of Jesus being the Good Shepherd.
  • Jun 18, 2017A Father’s Blessing (Genesis 27:26-29)
    Jun 18, 2017
    A Father’s Blessing (Genesis 27:26-29)
    We often use the term blessed or blessing, but do we understand it in its biblical context? Is it possible for us to pass on a blessing to others?  We will discover some important life lessons as we consider Isaac's blessing of Jacob.

 
 
 
 

 

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.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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.
