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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    God is Serious (Intro to Minor Prophets)
    With this sermon we begin a new sermon series entitled, “God’s Heart...Our Heart.” We will be going through the last 12 books of the Old Testament, often known as “The Minor Prophets.” These books will reveal to us God’s heart for his people. We will also learn of God’s heart for justice, compassion, mercy, and our faithfulness to Him as we live out our daily lives.
  • Apr 17, 2022The “Yes” of Resurrection (Matthew 28:1-20)
    Apr 17, 2022
    The “Yes” of Resurrection (Matthew 28:1-20)
    The resurrection of Jesus Christ is arguably the foundation of all we believe. To paraphrase the Apostle Paul: If Christ has not been raise our faith is pointless. (1 Cor. 15:17). In Matthew’s account of the resurrection we find discover three general responses joyful wonder, denial, and doubt. And yet as we will see, in many ways resurrection is God’s “Yes” to many of our questions.
  • Apr 10, 2022Tough Questions Matthew 22:34-45
    Apr 10, 2022
    Tough Questions Matthew 22:34-45
    The week following Palm Sunday was full of confrontation. The religious leaders worked hard to find a way to trip Jesus up so they could have an excuse for arresting him. In this interchange we find Jesus not only answering their question but posing a question to them for which they have no answer. We are left with yet another reminder of Jesus’ full awareness of who he is and the goal of his mission.
  • Apr 3, 2022Leadership Jesus’ Way

    Leadership Jesus’ Way
    We have seen what it means to follow Jesus. Now we will see what it means to lead in the manner of Jesus. There is much written about leadership. Jesus not only gives us a very simple, yet complex principle, but then in Matthew’s Gospel he shows in real time what it looks like.
  • Mar 27, 2022For all those who follow (Matthew 16:13-27)
    Mar 27, 2022
    For all those who follow (Matthew 16:13-27)
    In every endeavor there are leaders. Even if a leader is not designated for a particular situation, one will eventually emerge. The question each person must answer is “Do I know the leader I am choosing to follow?” In our passage we discover that while the disciples had a raw understanding of who Jesus was, they still needed to be reminded of his mission, and the cost to join him on that mission. We need the same reminders.
  • Mar 20, 2022Jesus Assembles the Team (Matthew 9:34-10:4)
    Mar 20, 2022
    Jesus Assembles the Team (Matthew 9:34-10:4)
    In order to launch a mission that would alter the course of human history, Jesus first assembled a team. They were not considered “all-stars” but were hand picked by Jesus after spending a night in prayerful communion with the Heavenly Father. We will see the balance between grace and truth as we look at the most unlikely person to be chosen for this special team.
  • Mar 13, 2022What Job learned…What we can learn (Job 42)
    Mar 13, 2022
    What Job learned…What we can learn (Job 42)
    What can we learn from a concluding chapter? What is there for us several thousand years later? We will consider Job’s repentance, his intercession for this friends and their misinformation, and what it may mean for us to be full of years. What we will discover is the power of God's grace in uncertain times. It is a unique twist that we don't always see coming.
  • Mar 6, 2022And Then God Spoke (Job 38-42:6)
    Mar 6, 2022
    And Then God Spoke (Job 38-42:6)
    Finally, God steps is. Finally, we may be able to make sense of all this. Finally, Job will be vindicated. That is our hope. But God’s ways are not our ways. God reminds Job clearly as to who is really in charge. When all is said and done, Job will know one thing. God is and there is no other. And that is all he really needs to know.
  • Feb 27, 2022It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It
    Feb 27, 2022
    It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It
    The youngest of Job's friends, who is not mentioned at the beginning or at the
    end of the book speaks for 6 chapters. What we learn is that one can speak truth
    about God but do so in a way that comes across as arrogant. We will look at
    what is right about his speech from which we can learn and we will look at
    where his arrogance gets in the way.
  • Feb 20, 2022Closing Argument: Job 29-31
    Feb 20, 2022
    Closing Argument: Job 29-31
    Job makes his final defense of himself before his friends and before God. We see a man reflecting on his life, on his motives, and on his struggles. It is important to note that God gives Job all the space and time he needs to get it all out of his system. As we examine Job’s final words we will consider the fact that we all can look back at memories, joys, sorrows, regrets, and victories. The question we need to explore is simply this: “When I have hit the proverbial bottom of my life, where is God?”
  • Feb 13, 2022The Most Important Treasure

    The Most Important Treasure
    The person, chosen by God, to pen the words of Job inserts a special chapter. It is a poetic description of the great lengths to which humanity will go to find rare treasure. But it ends by reminding the reader of the simplicity and value of the greatest treasure of all. This pause in all the verbiage that has preceded is like a breath of fresh air that helps each of us refocus on what is really important.
  • Feb 6, 2022Amazing Statements from a Hurting Man
    Feb 6, 2022
    Amazing Statements from a Hurting Man
    Sprinkled throughout the speeches of Job are statements that should cause each of us to stop and take note. Millenia before Jesus was on the scene Job was confident that there was an advocate, a redeemer, and that they would one day see each other. These amazing statements should give each of us hope in difficult times.
 
 
 
 

 

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.
