“If you are going to talk the talk, you had better walk the walk.”  That phrase has been used in many arenas and the basic ideas is that the way you talk about your life, or you playing abilities, or you business acumen, or your academic skills had better be backed up by how you live, play, do business, or perform in the classroom.   The book of James in the New Testament essentially says the same thing.  It is not enough to say you have faith, you need to show it by your actions.  This Fall at Pleasant Hill Community Church, Pastor Scott will lead us through a study in the book of James.  Together we will learn what it means in practical ways to live what we say we believe.

Smart is not always wise (James 3:13-18)
Throughout this past summer we examined wisdom as it is seen in the Proverbs. In a brief segment of James, tied in contextually with how we use our words, we are given an outline of the differences between earthly wisdom and heavenly wisdom. It should be obvious, what path we want to choose, but it is not always easy. Being smart does not always equate with being wise in the eyes of God.

    A Most Powerful Gift (James 3:1-12)
    The ability to communicate is a gift. God has gifted humans with speech. Words are important. Words are powerful. Words are permanent. Words can build up or tear down. James reminds all of us that we need to be very careful as to how we use our words.

    Oh Yeah! Prove it! (James 2:14-26)
    It is easy to talk about how good we are or how much faith we have. James essentially says "talk is cheap." The proof of one's faith is not in their personal declaration, it is in the way they live their lives. If one is not exercising their faith, then there is a possibility it may not even be there. We learn in this section of James that our faith must be validated by our actions and good works.

    Who is unworthy of….? (James 2:1-13)
    Who is unworthy of your kindness? Who is unworthy of your help? Who is unworthy of your respect? Think very carefully before you answer those questions. We have a tendency to determine who is worthy of our attention based on what we see. No matter who we are we can be guilty of showing favoritism. We learn in this section of James that showing favoritism is the opposite of loving one’s neighbor as themselves.
  • Sep 22, 2019Don’t Just Look, Do Something (James 1:19-27)
    Sep 22, 2019
    Don’t Just Look, Do Something (James 1:19-27)
    A new theme that will play out through the book of James is introduced in this section. James is about living what we say we believe. First we are instructed to be good listeners, and people who don’t adopt ungodly standards for bringing about change. We are reminded that just taking in the word and not doing anything about it is empty. We need to be people who let God’s word change us from the inside out.
  • Sep 15, 2019Adjusting Our Perspective (James 1:9-18)

    Adjusting Our Perspective (James 1:9-18)
    Navigating difficult times in our lives can be managed as we learn to have the right perspective. We have learned to have an attitude of joy because of what we know to be true (James 1:3-8). As James develops this thought he reminds us that we need to be dependent upon God, not our wealth. We need to be very honest with ourselves regarding our possible role in the difficulty. We need to remember God is the giver of good things, even when they come through difficult circumstances.
  • Sep 8, 2019Faith Under Pressure (James 1:1-8)

    Faith Under Pressure (James 1:1-8)
    We all face pressure. We all have struggles, or tests, or trials that come into our lives which are hard. It is at these times when our faith in God’s presence, or His ability, or His care are called into question. As we begin a Fall study in the book of James we discover that learning to live what we say we believe is often put to the test. We will discover that we can weather the storms of life when we have the long view in mind and when we by faith seek God’s guidance step by step. It is not easy, it is not without pain and struggle, but it will make us stronger.

    Created for Purpose (Genesis 1:26-28; 2:15)
    Why are we here? Many of us have at one time or another wondered either out loud or in the depths of our own minds. The simple answer is we are here because God created us. But maybe the question that is really being asked is “What is my purpose?” We want to know that we matter, that we can make a difference, that we have purpose. Click on the link below to hear Pastor Scott's Labor Day Sunday Sermon. Consider that we are here for a purpose and believe it or not that purpose involves understanding God’s creation of work.

    What Wisdom Looks Like (Proverbs 31:10-31)
    All too often the epilogue of the book of Proverbs is reserved for Mother’s Day sermons. However, we need to  look at these last 22 verses of Proverbs from the standpoint of the whole book, that being wisdom. Since wisdom is personified as a woman in the early parts of Proverbs, it stands to reason that this last chapter also speaks more of wisdom than an impossible “to do list” for a wife. When we see it as a metaphor, Proverbs 31:10-31 has a powerful message for all of us.

    The Wisdom of Honesty
    We live in a culture in which truth is not always held in high esteem. Fact checking seems to be the norm when anyone of note speaks or writes. Plausible deniability is valued, statistics are manipulated, and advertisers only tell you enough to make a sale. If everyone is playing loose with the truth, why should we be different? In this sermon we consider the wisdom of honesty.


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 also offer ministry to Middle School and High School Students.  We involve all ages in our adult 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.
