Making a Difference in 2019
As we enter a new year, it is a time for many to consider how we interact with those around us.  We live in a divided time.  There are sharp divisions over almost every issue.  And there often seems to be no middle ground.   
The season we have just completed celebrates the birth of Jesus.   In reference to that event John 1:14 tells us: “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.  We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”  (*emphasis added).  What does it look like to follow Jesus and be people who strike the balance of grace and truth?  We will look at examples of how Jesus interacted with people as recorded in the Gospel of John.  Our desire in 2019 is to be people who learn to live in that same balance of grace and truth.  Join us each Sunday at 9:30 as we learn together.

Grace, Truth, and Sight (John 9)
The Disciples saw a sinner. The Pharisees saw a rule breaker. The crowds saw an anomaly. Jesus saw a person in need and touched his life giving him sight. The blind man saw Jesus and believed. When we understand grace and truth we learn to see life through the eyes of Jesus because we have truly seen Jesus.

    Grace, Truth, and Bad Choices (John 8:1-11)
    Have you ever been caught up in making a bad choice? We all have. While our passage today is in dispute as to where it falls in Scripture, it is a story that is consistent with what we know of Jesus. The woman was entrapped and found guilty. Jesus does not ignore her sin. Jesus does not rush to judgment. In a unique display of grace and truth, he protects her, forgives her, and gently confronts her sin.

    Grace, Truth, Fish, and Bread (John 6)
    In one of the most familiar accounts of the ministry of Jesus we will discover some important lessons of Grace and Truth. The biggest question that came out of the feeding of the 5,000 was simply this: “Why do you follow Jesus?” How do you and I respond to that question? Does our answer hold up when we face the tough things in life?

    Grace, Truth, and a Misplaced Focus
    Sometimes we get so focused on our circumstances that we are unable to see the solution.  In John 5 Jesus encounters such a man.  However, Jesus steps into this man's life and in one sentence changes it.  As we examine this instance and the lengthy discourse that follows we learn some valuable lessons of grace and truth.

    Grace, Truth, and Brokenness (John 4)
    Jesus knows who you are, where you are, and where you have been. Yet he steps into our lives and offers his grace and forgiveness. In John 4 we meet a woman who is broken, possibly victimized, and living an immoral life. Jesus breaks about every rule in the book to speak with her. Before it is all said and done, he reveals to her the life changing reality of his grace and truth.

    Grace, Truth, and a Fiasco (John 2:1-12)
    Social blunders are part of being human. In this passage it was more than a blunder. Running out of wine in the middle of a first century wedding was unheard of, unacceptable, and socially devastating for years. As a guest at this wedding Jesus was not responsible for planning. As the Messiah, he was on God’s timetable. And yet he showed grace in the middle of a fiasco and helped a family save face.

    Grace, Truth, and 2019
    We are in a new year. That brings with it, new hopes, new promises, and new challenges. As we begin to navigate the unchartered waters of this new year we are going to look to Jesus as our example. Our journey through the Gospel of John over the next few weeks will highlight two perfectly balanced characteristics of Jesus. He was full of “grace and truth” (John 1:14). May we each be people of grace and truth in this new year.

    Living by Faith in 2019
    It is one thing to talk about faith. We can celebrate “heroes of faith.” But what does it really mean to live by faith? Does it mean to sell everything and go to Djibouti? Does it mean to quit one’s job and become a pastor? Maybe. But it can also mean to make simple changes in my lifestyle and learn to listen to God on a daily basis. Living by faith can be very practical.

    Love That Lasts
    Series: Advent 2018
    The word love is possibly the most overused and therefore watered down term in current use. We love everything from pizza, to puppies, to performers, and vacation spots. But love that lasts must be deeper than a preference or an emotional reaction. God tells us that love is bound up in sacrificially putting others first. Love that lasts is neither self-centered nor self-serving. We will consider love that lasts on this last Sunday of Advent.
  • Dec 16, 2018Real Joy (Luke 2:8-11; John 15:9-13)

    Real Joy (Luke 2:8-11; John 15:9-13)
    Series: Advent 2018
    “Joy to the World” we sing. The angel said he was bringing, “good news that will cause great joy for all people.” What is joy? Is it just happiness over circumstances that are pleasant. Is it something like that but a bit more? Jesus said that our joy could be full, or complete in John 15:11. How can we get to that point? Today we consider the joy that comes from the promise and purpose of Jesus being born some 2000 years ago. Real joy is possible.
 
 
 
 

 

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.
