When you travel on a steep highway, there are typically guardrails to provide a layer of safety and security.  When each vehicle stays in its own lane and does not test the strength of the guardrails, there is great freedom for all to travel safely to their destination.  We are calling our Winter Sermon Series:  “Guardrails for Living: Discovering Freedom in the 10 Commandments.” We often think of these 10 important statements from God as a list of “don’ts.” But as we will see they actually are standards of living that when we stay within the boundaries we understand what it truly means to love God with all our heart, soul, and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Join us each Sunday at 9;30 or subscribe to our podcast, or listen online as Pastor Scott leads us through God’s guardrails for living.  Together we will discover there is freedom between the boundaries of God’s guardrails.

Staying Focused (Exodus 20:4-6)
The temptation of the Israelites was to worship other gods. In their mind other gods offered more options. We are tempted in the same way, maybe not with stone or metal idols but with so many distractions. Yet when we refuse to let anything or anyone interfere with our relationship with God, there is a stability that is indescribable. There is freedom and security in staying focused on our God.

    A Holy God Who Delivers (Exodus 20:1-3)
    We begin a new series today as we will examine the 10 Words; also known as the 10 Commandments. We will find that these are not prohibitions as much as they are “guardrails” that provide freedom and security for an enjoyable life. In the first word we find that there is stability, hope, protection, and provision when we remember that there is only one God.

    Make a Difference (Matthew 5:13-16)
    We find ourselves on that Sunday between two years. It is a time to look back and reflect and a time to think ahead. How will we individually and collectively represent our God in the this coming year? What image of God do people see in the way we live our lives? We will look at Jesus’ word picture of “a city on a hill” and consider what that word picture could mean for us collectively as well as individually.
  • Dec 22, 2019Bathsheba: Victimized yet Victorious (2 Sam. 11-12; Matthew 1:6)

    Bathsheba: Victimized yet Victorious (2 Sam. 11-12; Matthew 1:6)
    For anyone who has ever in any way been a victim of the sin of another this story is for you. Jesus came to give life to all. He was announced to lowly shepherds who were marginalized in the society. He was born to a poor couple who were ostracized from their community and eventually fled as refugees to Egypt to escape danger. He was worshiped by magi from the East. As we celebrate the birth of Jesus this week, we need to remember that he is Lord for all of us. The story of Bathsheba and her inclusion in the genealogy of Jesus if nothing else reminds us of God’s grace and healing for all.
  • Dec 15, 2019Ruth: Faithful and True

    Ruth: Faithful and True
    The book of Ruth is one of the more tender stories in the Bible. First we, see this woman who is a foreigner, who is marginalized by those in Bethlehem, and who even describes herself as not even having the standing of a servant. But we see her as faithful to one who had no means of providing. Willing to trust the word of her mother-in-law, and courageously placing herself under the care of a man who was a stranger to her. God rewards the faithfulness of this marginalized foreigner and welcomes her into his family. Something for us to consider.
  • Dec 8, 2019Rahab: Daring and Defiant (Joshua 2)
    Dec 8, 2019
    Rahab: Daring and Defiant (Joshua 2)
    Daring, defiant, and unrefined. All terms that could describe Rahab. Her profession was the only one available for a single woman in 1400 BC. And yet God still used her to help his people. Her faith was raw and unrefined but it was real. She is not just one listed in the genealogy of Jesus, she is considered by the writer to the Hebrews as a hero of the faith (Hebrews 11:31). Consider what we can learn by this woman that while eschewed by others was chosen by God to show us the power of simple, unrefined faith.
  • Dec 1, 2019Tamar: Forgotten and Desperate (Genesis 38; Matthew 1:3)
    Dec 1, 2019
    Tamar: Forgotten and Desperate (Genesis 38; Matthew 1:3)
    Forgotten. If you have ever felt forgotten and neglected, then you can begin to understand Tamar. But there is more to her story. The covenant hung in the balance. Judah's sons are men of evil and sin and God takes both their lives. Tamar is forgotten and takes action in to her own hands. It is unorthodox, unwise, and ill advised. But in his grace, God sometimes works through the forgotten and the desperate.

    Elements of Living in True Community (James 5:12-20)
    Integrity, honesty, communication, humility, and accountability.  All are terms that are loaded with meaning.  All are words that when lived out to the fullness of their meaning lead to a deep sense of wholeness.  These are terms that describe a healthy community.  We will examine some elements of a healthy community as we complete James 5.
  • Nov 17, 2019Faithful and True (James 5:7-11)
    Nov 17, 2019
    Faithful and True (James 5:7-11)
    How should we respond when we are being mistreated? What does it mean to wait for the Lord? It seems we live in a time in which there is a constant drift away from things that many of us hold dear. We are reminded in this passage to be people of patient integrity, who live as if we really believe God is in charge, and Jesus is coming back.
  • Nov 10, 2019The Pitfall of Self-indulgence (James 5:1-6)

    The Pitfall of Self-indulgence (James 5:1-6)
    It is not about what you have, it is about what you do with what you have. At first glance it would seem that James is against wealth. However, when we consider carefully his words we discover that he is warning us against a selfindulgent lifestyle that is often reflected by taking advantage of those who have less. Each one of us as western Christians need to give careful thought to how we use our relative wealth.
 
 
 
 

 

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.
