We tend to mark time by our school year.  New classes, new grades, new teachers, new experiences.  What kind of character do we want to develop in our lives?  In His eternal wisdom God has given us important lists of character traits that will shape us to be the people He wants us to be.  One of the most familiar set of character traits is the Fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23.  Beginning on Sunday, August 20, as somewhat of a “back to school” series Pastor Scott will explore with us a different character trait as we learn to cultivate the Fruit of the Spirit in our lives and in our faith community.   Please plan to be part of the journey each Sunday at 10:00 AM.   We would so enjoy seeing you in person, and yet we are also excited when you choose to join our livestream at

Patience…Now! (Galatians 5:22)
We live in an impatient world. We want our Amazon delivery to come in 24 hours, but it’s even better if it arrives in a matter of hours. The lottery promotions tell us we can have it all now...if we win. There is a maturity to being patient. There is a healthy perspective in knowing what is worth waiting for. It is interesting that this characteristic follows that of peace. Maybe there is a connection.

    The Blessing of Peace (Galatians 5:22-23)
    Peace is the third aspect of the fruit of the Spirit. It is a characteristic that comes directly from God. It is a characteristic that gives us strength and hope. Jesus told us that the peacemakers are blessed. We will discover the true nature of peace and how it reflects the Holy Spirit who indwells us.
  • Sep 3, 2023The Strength of Joy (Galatians 5:22)

    The Strength of Joy (Galatians 5:22)
    Joy is one of those words that we tend to either ignore or some over do it. What is joy? How do I get it? How do I keep it? How can I be joyful when I am hurt, or grieving, or struggling to figure life out. Since joy is part of the fruit of the Spirit, then it will help all of us to have a greater understanding of how to discover and grow in this area and discover why the joy of the Lord is our strength.
  • Aug 27, 2023Love is the Key (Galatians 5:22)

    Love is the Key (Galatians 5:22)
    There are nine aspects or characteristics of the fruit of the Spirit. The foundational characteristic is love. We will define love as used in the Bible and look at several characteristics of love that reflect the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We will discover that love is more than an emotion
  • Aug 20, 2023Freedom within Boundaries (Galatians 5)
    Aug 20, 2023
    Freedom within Boundaries (Galatians 5)
    As we open this series we will begin with defining freedom as Paul does in Galatians and get some background of the letter. We will also look briefly at the characteristics that are the complete opposite of the Fruit of The Spirit. We need to understand where not to go so we can more fully understand who God wants us to be. One thing that is clear is that self-indulgent living is not the path to God honoring freedom.
  • Aug 13, 2023Grace is the Key part 2 (Romans 15:22-33)
    Aug 13, 2023
    Grace is the Key part 2 (Romans 15:22-33)
    What is your dream? If you could do anything you wanted for God what would it be? Believe it or not God has created and equipped you and placed you exactly where He wants you at this time. In God's grace we can think about what we would want to do for God. It is not wrong to dream big dreams for God. Just make sure you keep Him the focus. His grace will enable you to do more than you can imagine. But it is always His work.
  • Aug 6, 2023Grace is the Key (part 1 – Romans 15:14-21)

    Grace is the Key (part 1 – Romans 15:14-21)
    Rarely do any of us really feel we are "good enough?" We have too much experience and too many voices in our past and our present that remind us how far we fall short of some elusive level of perfection. We all need God's grace. We need to know that God makes us enough for what He invites us to accomplish.
  • Jul 30, 2023Others-centeredness Personified (Romans 15.1-13)
    Jul 30, 2023
    Others-centeredness Personified (Romans 15.1-13)
    If I could only see a picture. If there were only a video. It seems when we have an example to follow it is easier to achieve the goal. In this section we have the prime example of unselfishness. As we look at Jesus and at how he accepts us as we are with all our faults, we should be able to accept others and their differences. The idea is not to just "live and let live." The idea is to accept one another and grow in love together, toward God and one another.
  • Jul 23, 2023Putting Others First (Romans 14:13-23)
    Jul 23, 2023
    Putting Others First (Romans 14:13-23)
    It almost seems unfair at times to feel like we have to think of others. In our humanness, we wonder why no one thinks about us first. In a faith community that is characterized by loving one's neighbor as themselves, we ought to be concerned about others. On the one hand, it is wrong to let someone manipulate and control you. On the other hand, it is important that we do nothing that would hinder another person from growing and knowing more about Jesus.
  • Jul 16, 2023Focus on the Essentials (Romans 14:1-12)
    Jul 16, 2023
    Focus on the Essentials (Romans 14:1-12)
    There were divisions in the Roman house churches. Often they fell along ethnic lines between the Jewish believers and the non-Jewish believers. Sometimes just like us, the first century Roman believers made issues of faith out of things that were issues of preference. If we are to truly love one another we need to learn to focus on the essentials and show grace with differences.
  • Jul 9, 2023What Love Looks Like (Romans 13:8-14)
    Jul 9, 2023
    What Love Looks Like (Romans 13:8-14)
    As we have stated in the past this section of Romans is bookended by love. If God’s love is the most powerful force in our lives (Romans 8:37-39) then love should be the core motivating factor of our lives. Love is the ultimate fulfillment of God’s law and the one characteristic that we all take with us into eternity.
  • Jul 2, 2023Living Lovingly and Wisely as Citizens (Romans 13:1-7)
    Jul 2, 2023
    Living Lovingly and Wisely as Citizens (Romans 13:1-7)
    As a “living sacrifice” whose mind is to be renewed so that I live transformed in my world, I must carry that reality over to my life as a citizen. The aspects of harmony and peace with others are key to our life as citizens. While we cannot and should not try to make a one to one comparison between First Century Rome and the 21st Century USA, there are still principles to understand and lessons to learn.
  • Jun 25, 2023A Lived Theology of Love (Romans 12:9-21)
    Jun 25, 2023
    A Lived Theology of Love (Romans 12:9-21)
    These verses consist of a list of behaviors that reflect the outworking of a renewed mind. Imagine our own faith community in which we each sought to live in the ways outlined in this passage. Imagine our families, neighborhoods, workplaces, and local communities. Maybe this is what Jesus meant when he instructed us to be salt and light (see Matthew 5:13-16).
  • Jun 18, 2023A God Centered Self Concept (Romans 12:3-8)
    Jun 18, 2023
    A God Centered Self Concept (Romans 12:3-8)
    When you look in the mirror who do you really see? Do you see a person who is created in the image of God? A person of immeasurable worth and value? A person who has been given a unique set of skills and abilities to serve God and others? A person who is humbled by God’s love and yet encouraged by God’s presence? As we learn to be living sacrifices, transformed by the renewing of our minds we develop a God-centered self concept
  • Jun 11, 2023Living Sacrifices (Romans 12:1-2)
    Jun 11, 2023
    Living Sacrifices (Romans 12:1-2)
    How we respond practically to God's Mercy and Grace and Love is the theme of Romans 12-16. Today we begin to answer the fifth and final question in the book of Romans: "How should a follower of Jesus conduct themselves in this world?" We will learn in today's passage that it begins with a choice deep within the soul of each person to allow God to do a transforming work. And we will discover it is a constant process.


What to Expect on a Typical Sunday
Each Sunday we gather at 10:00 AM.   
We invite all ages to be part of our time together as we begin.  However, we understand that it may be more comfortable for Infants and Toddlers to be in a nursery that we provide.
Dress is casual and comfortable.
Our music is a blend of that which is relatively contemporary and traditional
We will dismiss children up through 5th Grade to attend an age appropriate class during the sermon.   
Following the sermon all children return to the Auditorium for a time of response to the sermon through song.


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.


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 involve all ages in our ministry.


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.
Camp Oak Hills
The Navigators
Slavic Missionary Service
World Gospel Mission
Wycliffe Bible Translators
