Names are important.  Our name is not only how we are identified but the mention of our name causes others to think of our character.  The prophet Isaiah was allowed by God to envision the greatness of the Messiah and we have a glimpse of his amazing character in 4 descriptions of his Name.  We will explore the character of our Messiah, Jesus Christ this Advent Season.

Portrait of a Dynamic Duo
There are some couples who just stand out. Sometimes we call them power couples and other times dynamic duos. But the point is they work together, they have influence, and their marriage is a true partnership. We will look at what we can glean from such a couple beginning in the book of Acts. One thing we will discover, is that the focus of this couple was always on advancing the good news of Jesus Christ.

    Portrait of an Encourager: Barnabas
    Think of a time in which someone said or did something for you that was deeply encouraging. Many of us can recall the time, the circumstances, and the exact words that were spoken or deed that was done. Often we find ourselves welling up with emotion. As followers of Jesus we are all called to be encouragers and God in His grace gives us an example in Barnabas. May we each strive to follow his example.

    A Healthy Faith Community (Reflections in Acts)
    What can we learn from the principles we have seen in Acts? How can we apply them? As we come to the conclusion of this brief study we will look at a summary of our eight principles condensed into four purpose statements. All which may give us a better picture of what a healthy local church and faith community can look like. We can be that community.

    Endure the heat of Persecution
    Persecution is real. Persecution is painful. Persecution transforms us. We don’t like to think about persecution but it is something that we may all face. We each need one another in community to endure any level of persecution that may come our way. We learn to trust God more through persecutions. Bear in mind that our persecutor may be the agent of the trial, but they are not the source. When we suffer for our faith we need to remember that God is still in control.

    Put the Servant into Servant Leadership (Acts 6:1-7)
    Leadership is important. Jesus, reminded his disciples that the best leaders were servants first, and he modeled that. In the book of Acts we see the apostles exercising servant leadership and choosing those who also showed that they were servant leaders. Even those who do not consider themselves leaders should still exercise the qualities of servant leadership in their daily lives.

    The Unifying Power of Generosity (Acts 4:32-5:11)
    Generous people are not necessarily wealthy. Generous people tend to understand the temporary nature of things. Generous people understand that generosity extends beyond stuff. Generous people see others through the eyes of Christ. Generous people are most often, gracious, humble, and empathetic. There is a unifying power in generosity.

    Embrace the Strength of a Faith Community
    Community. In community we can feel safe. In community we feel we belong. In community we feel we have a support network. From the very beginning, the Church has realized the strength of community. As followers of Jesus we have been invited to join and embrace the strength of the faith community.

    Stick to the Core Message of Jesus
    So often we hear of organizations working on their branding and messaging. One of the realities of the early movement of the followers of Jesus, that became the church, is that they all knew and were deeply committed to the core message of Jesus. One could say their branding was as clear as it was simple. Sometimes the simplest message is still the most effective.

    Following Our Guide The Holy Spirit
    From the beginning of the book of Acts we discover that Jesus did not leave his followers alone. He promised to send the Holy Spirit and he did. The Holy Spirit guides us, empowers us, and helps us to do God’s work right now. The key is that we need to pay attention and wait as the Holy Spirit’s timing is always perfect. We will discover the importance of living life in the Spirit this morning.

    Prayer: Our main line of communication (Part 2)
    We continue our focus on prayer this week. We will look at several different aspects of what it looks like to make prayer a core reality in our lives both individually and as a corporate entity. Our prayer for this part of our Acts series is that each one would seek to make a small step of growth in their prayer relationship with the triune God.

    Prayer: Our main line of communication
    It is easy to say that prayer is important. However, we each need to think long and hard and determine if our prayer activity, matches our prayer declarations. Prayer is a vital necessity for the life of any church. It is not just an individual necessity, it is a corporate necessity. We need to be praying people. We need to be a praying church. How will we make that happen?

    What Now? (Acts 1:1-11)
    No matter how much instruction you receive there comes a point in which you have to step up and do what you have learned. There comes a time when you have to act on what you have learned. That time came for the first followers of Jesus in what is recorded in Acts 1:1-11. We will look at the “marching orders” given to them by Jesus and some pre-cautions that we all need to follow.

    Looking Back…Looking Forward
    We all face times of transition. We all face times when we know we need to leave something behind as we move forward in life. But what we leave behind is not forgotten, it becomes the foundation for our next step. The two volume set of Luke and Acts provide that transition for us. As we finish Luke we have a clear foundation and a certainty of God’s plan. As we begin Acts we will find clarity in God’s principles for His Church that we can all follow.

    One for the Ages (Luke 24:13-49)
    Imagine what it must have been like for the disciples to process the events leading up to the resurrection. Two of the disciples are privy to what had to be the most amazing sermon mentioned in the Bible. The risen Jesus explaining to them the flow of prophetic history and how it pointed to him. It was a sermon for the ages. We will look at some of those high points in the Scriptures this morning as we consider the risen, living, Jesus Christ.
  • Aug 8, 2021The Righteous for the unrighteous (Luke 22:63-23:49)
    Aug 8, 2021
    The Righteous for the unrighteous (Luke 22:63-23:49)
    To read again one of the crucifixion accounts should cause anyone to pause. Repeatedly, Jesus is declared innocent. Repeatedly, we see him caring for others in the middle of his own suffering. Repeatedly, we see the anger and vitriol that led to his death. One wonders how things would have been different had Jesus been welcomed and accepted as the Messiah. But for now we are left with the mystery of the only righteous one, willingly paying the price for unrighteousness.
 
 
 
 

 

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.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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.
