The issues we face in 2022 are very different and yet very much the same as those faced by God’s people in ancient times.  Two things have not changed over time.  God’s heart and the heart of humans.  God has always been about mercy, compassion, justice, grace and repentance.  Humans seem to have always been about power, popularity, oppression, wealth, and influence.   Throughout the Spring and Summer of 2022 we will look at The Minor Prophets, in the Bible, also known by some as “The Book of The Twelve.”  We will discover God’s Heart and in so doing learn how we need to adjust our hearts to care for the issues the really matter to God.

In the brine but not yet pickled (Jonah 1:17-3:3)
Sometimes we think we have gone too far astray and that we are not useful to God any longer. Jonah had to be thinking that all along. But he does the one thing we all can do, he prays. And the lesson he learns is that God is always there and always willing to give another chance.

    You can run but you can’t hide (Jonah 1)
    Jonah is the one minor prophet most know about. That is because of the story of the great fish. But there is more to Jonah than a Fish Story. We will learn about God and his relentless pursuit of us, his grace to save us from ourselves, and his willingness to let us think we can make life work on our own. Until we can’t.
  • Jul 24, 2022The Foolishness of Pride (Obadiah)

    The Foolishness of Pride (Obadiah)
    In this shortest book of the Old Testament, God uses the prophet Obadiah to reveal his heart regarding pride. The nation of Edom is object of this prophecy. Although this nation traced its ancestry to Esau, the brother of Jacob that is where their kinship seemed to end. Their pride and animosity toward the descendants of Jacob became their down fall. We will examine how pride destroys we will also learn how to defeat pride in our own lives.
  • Jul 17, 2022Misconceptions About God (Amos 7-9)

    Misconceptions About God (Amos 7-9)
    In a survey of the final two chapter of the prophecy of Amos we will discover four misconceptions about God that seemed to be circulating 2800 years ago. What we will discover is that in 2022, these same misconceptions are still out there. But what we can learn for our own lives is the true balance of our God. He is Holy and Righteous and yet Gracious and Forgiving. He is a God of Justice and also a God of Lovingkindness. When we refuse to exchange the truth of God for the misconceptions of our culture, we find God being enough for us day in and day out.
  • Jul 10, 2022Words of Caution (Amos 5:18-6:14)
    Jul 10, 2022
    Words of Caution (Amos 5:18-6:14)
    Sometimes we think we have come to the point where we can handle whatever comes our way. Amos continually warns the people to beware of their external worship and complacent hearts. God deals with pride, privilege, and injustice severely. We also need a reminder to not think that because things are going well in our lives we don't need to stay committed to God.
  • Jul 3, 2022A Simple Path (Amos 5:1-17)
    Jul 3, 2022
    A Simple Path (Amos 5:1-17)
    On this Independence Day Sunday many of our thoughts are centered on our nation and the freedom we have. But all too often we put our dependency on human institutions, including romanticizing our own nation's past. Israel had done the same thing. In this section they are called to repentance. We as God's people need to take seriously any ways we have personally strayed from him and come back to following him.
  • Jun 26, 2022Prepare to Meet Your God (Amos 4)

    Prepare to Meet Your God (Amos 4)
    Are you really ready to stand before God? What about your life right now do you think God would be pleased with? What about your life is getting in the way of your relationship with God? What do you think God would ask you to change? All questions we really should be asking now. The people in Samaria were not ready to meet God. What about you and me?.
  • Jun 19, 2022Breaking Down Fortresses (Amos 3:1-15)
    Jun 19, 2022
    Breaking Down Fortresses (Amos 3:1-15)
    On this Father's Day we will consider the fact that the best Dads help their children see reality and prepare for living responsibly. Amos outlines several "fortresses" that the people had built up. He reveals to them that they are simply living for themselves and ignoring God and others. Our only real guarantee in life is our relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
  • Jun 12, 2022A Regular Guy with a Powerful Message (Amos 1-2)

    A Regular Guy with a Powerful Message (Amos 1-2)
    Sometimes the most profound truths come from the least expected people. We expect soundbites from politicians or celebrities. But often it is the regular person with whom we have a relationship who speaks truth into our lives, or truth into a situation that has the greater impact. Amos was a regular guy, a farmer, but his words continue to have great importance.

    When Bad Things Happen: Survey of the Prophecy of Joel
    We don’t have to look to far in the past to recount some bad things that have
    happened in our world. Natural disasters, a global pandemic, tragedies of
    violence, and war are splashed in front of us daily. What are we to do? How
    are we to respond? Where is God? Today we will discover a question that may
    be uncomfortable: What could God be saying to us when bad things happen?
  • May 29, 2022Letters from a Loving Father (Hosea 11-14)
    May 29, 2022
    Letters from a Loving Father (Hosea 11-14)
    In a unique approach we are going to view the final chapters of Hosea as letters written from a loving, yet hurting Father to a wayward child. One of the things that we will discover is that God’s heart is not a heart of angry punishment. He longs for all to see the error of their ways and to return to him. For those who choose otherwise, God painfully allows them to experience the consequences of sin. As a loving Father, God wants all his children to be close to him.
  • May 22, 2022The Flimsy Defense: Trusting One’s Own righteousness (Luke 18:9-14)
    May 22, 2022
    The Flimsy Defense: Trusting One’s Own righteousness (Luke 18:9-14)
    In a brief parable in which we see the different approaches of two men who come to God in prayer we are reminded of a very important reality. We must always approach God from a heart of humility. Pride will always move us away from God and deeper into ourselves. God is never drawn to human pride.
  • May 15, 2022God as a Presiding Judge (Hosea 8-10)
    May 15, 2022
    God as a Presiding Judge (Hosea 8-10)
    Following God may be hard in regards to challenges we face and ways God asks us to express our obedience. And yet it is also quite simple. Just keep one’s focus on God and strive to love him and others. As God passes down his sentence on the nation of Israel, we will find glimpses of God wanting more for his people. Even a good human judge would rather see a guilty person learn and change.
  • May 8, 2022God as a Prosecuting Attorney (Hosea 4-7)
    May 8, 2022
    God as a Prosecuting Attorney (Hosea 4-7)
    God does not ignore our sin. God does not gloss over our sin. He calls out his people for their actions and their attitudes. And yet in the middle of his pointing out their failures, he continues to appeal for them to change their heart and their actions and to return to Him. God continually offers to us the opportunity to turn around and return to him.
  • May 1, 2022Response of a Wounded Lover (Hosea 1-3)
    May 1, 2022
    Response of a Wounded Lover (Hosea 1-3)
    Sometimes we need to remember that the God who created our emotions, is a God of emotions. God rejoices and celebrates. God also is wounded by our actions and deeply saddened by our sin. Nowhere do we see this more dramatically portrayed than in the first three chapters of Hosea. In this section we will see God as a wounded lover who longs to restore and heal relationship.
 
 
 
 

 

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.
