Home.  It is the place many think about as we approach Christmas.  Home is supposed to be a place of rest, hope, acceptance, love, and peace.  It is what we long for.  It is what we wish were always true.  For some, home approached that ideal.  For others home was something much less.  No matter how we would describe our homes, we have in our minds and our hearts what we each want home to be.  We invite you to Come Home this Advent Season.  Together we will discover that in Jesus Christ, the true gift of Christmas, we can each come home to rest, hope, acceptance, love, and peace.   Beginning Sunday, November 27 and each Sunday up through December 18 we will look at a different aspect of Home.  We meet each week in person at 10:00 AM or online at www.Facebook.com/PHCChurch.   
Come Home.

Sermons

Come Home to Rest (Matthew 11:28-30)
Coming home. We come home from work and we just want to take a break and put our feet up. We come home from school and we just want to have a snack and unwind. Home is a place where we should be able to rest. Home is a place where we should get a break. Jesus offers us the ultimate rest for our soul as we enter our faith relationship with Him. Come Home to rest in Jesus today.

    Leftovers…Again (Malachi)
    The temple is complete. The walls are built. The people are secure. And God for some reason is not as important. That seems to be the human condition. We tend to want God when we are in trouble, but when things are good we tend to drift. In Malachi’s prophecy, God calls His people out for their complacency and then promises to visit them in a powerful way.

    Ancient Words…Future Focus (Zechariah 12-14)
    One of the difficult realities that people who have a sense of what may be coming in the future is that they are not always believed. As humans, we tend to focus on what we think we know, and what we think is a sure thing. From a survey of biblical history, we can tell that Zechariah’s final oracles were not heeded by the people of Israel. Maybe we can do better.
  • Nov 6, 2022The Leader You Have Always Longed For (Zechariah 9-11)

    The Leader You Have Always Longed For (Zechariah 9-11)
    Dr. John Maxwell said, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” There is much truth to that statement. Whether we are currently in a leadership position or are in a place where we are being led, we have a sense of what good leadership is about. In this section of Zechariah, we are introduced to one who will be the perfect leader. Our task will be to discover how we can emulate the leader we have longed for.
  • Oct 30, 2022Clean and Empowered (Zechariah 3-4)

    Clean and Empowered (Zechariah 3-4)
    God does His work through His people. The enemy of God, Satan does all he can to discourage and discredit God’s people. But God in his grace, cleans and empowers us to be all we can be for Him. We see God at work in the process in Zechariah 3-4 for Joshua and Zerubbabel. As we look at this passage through the cross we discover that through Jesus God cleans and empowers us.
  • Oct 23, 2022A Passionate God (Zech. 1-2)
    Oct 23, 2022
    A Passionate God (Zech. 1-2)
    God is passionate. God is passionate about one thing. He is passionate about His relationship with His creation. God is passionate about you. He is passionate about you and your relationship to Him and your relationship to the faith community. When we individually and collectively are fully invested in our relationship with God we find Him to be our comfort, our protector, and our confidence.
  • Oct 16, 2022Recheck Your Priorities (The Prophecy of Haggai)

    Recheck Your Priorities (The Prophecy of Haggai)
    What would cause you to reprioritize your life, or your habits? What makes you rethink your circumstances? It seems that it often takes some sort of close call, or some kind of disaster to often make us evaluate what is really important. The challenges from Haggai, to God’s people who had returned to the land will help us take a good look at our own priorities and see where we may need to come back in line with God's standards.
  • Oct 9, 2022Responding to God’s Warning (The prophecy of Zephaniah)
    Oct 9, 2022
    Responding to God’s Warning (The prophecy of Zephaniah)
    Tornado warnings. Hurricane warnings. Flood warnings. People respond differently. Some head for shelter, evacuate, or find the high ground. Others determine that they will “ride it out.” Natural disasters are no respecters of people, and the results of not heeding the warnings are tragic. God repeatedly warns his people that he will deal with their sins. Only those who respond in humble repentance are spared.
  • Oct 2, 2022When Nothing Seems To Make Sense (Habakkuk)
    Oct 2, 2022
    When Nothing Seems To Make Sense (Habakkuk)
    If you have ever wondered if God knows what he is doing this prophet is for you. If you have ever questioned God, this prophet is for you. Habakkuk, has trouble with God's plan but in the end, he trusts God more than he trusts his circumstances. It is a lesson for us all..
  • Sep 25, 2022“No Middle Ground” (Nahum)
    Sep 25, 2022
    “No Middle Ground” (Nahum)
    God does not play games. God does not just give suggestions. When we last saw the Ninevites they had repented from their sin. God relented from his judgement of them. Unfortunately for the Ninevites, their revival did not last. Roughly, 100 years later they were as sinful and warmongering as ever. Nahum is God’s prophet to call them out. But before we gloat over the failure of Nineveh, we need to look in the mirror and ask, “Is my own commitment to God a growing daily reality?”
  • Sep 18, 2022There is Hope (Micah 6:9-7:20)
    Sep 18, 2022
    There is Hope (Micah 6:9-7:20)
    Even though he is fully aware of our faults and failures, God still offers us hope. Our hope is in the God who knows the beginning from the end. We can't even know what this afternoon holds. Our hope is in a God who promises to forgive as we come to him in humility.
  • Sep 11, 2022The Power of Humility (Micah 5:1-6:8)
    Sep 11, 2022
    The Power of Humility (Micah 5:1-6:8)
    The culture in which we live celebrates those who are confident. We celebrate those who dream and dream and then achieve it. But there is another quality that is to be celebrated but is often overlooked. There is a unique power to humility. When we are humble we rely on God for success. We depend on God and not our own wits. We treat others with dignity and respect. We are able to see how God has been working in us. God calls us to live humbly and trust him to recognize our work.
  • Sep 4, 2022It’s About Leadership (Micah 3:1-4:5)
    Sep 4, 2022
    It’s About Leadership (Micah 3:1-4:5)
    As the leaders go, so goes the group, be it a nation, or a community, or a church, or a family. Micah calls the leaders from the political, spiritual, and judicial realm to account. They were supposed to point people to God and lead by following God. But instead they had determined that personal power was more satisfying than servant leadership. We are all leaders of someone and God expects us to lead properly.
  • Aug 21, 2022Freedom to Change (Micah 1-2)
    Aug 21, 2022
    Freedom to Change (Micah 1-2)
    The Prophet Micah had seen a great deal throughout his life. He had seen his nation, Judah go from a power house to a vassal of Assyria to a nation that successfully rebelled against the Assyrians. And yet in their relative freedom they had yet to come fully around to following God. Freedom for those who follow God is not doing anything they want; it is the freedom to change and learn to be more like God. Judah did not learn this lesson in Micah’s time.
  • Aug 14, 2022Human Anger v. Divine Compassion (Jonah 3-4)
    Aug 14, 2022
    Human Anger v. Divine Compassion (Jonah 3-4)
    It is one thing to obey. It is another thing to obey with a right heart. Jonah reveals his true heart. He really wanted God to zap the Ninevites. They were a war mongering enemy who deserved punishment not compassion. In a living word picture God reveals to Jonah the depth of divine compassion, grace, and sovereignty
 
 
 
 
What to Expect on a Typical Sunday
 
Each Sunday we gather at 10:00 AM.   
We invite all ages to be part of our time together as we begin.  However, we understand that it may be more comfortable for Infants and Toddlers to be in a nursery that we provide.
 
Dress is casual and comfortable.
 
Our music is a blend of that which is relatively contemporary and traditional
We will dismiss children up through 5th Grade to attend an age appropriate class during the sermon.   
 
Following the sermon all children return to the Auditorium for a time of response to the sermon through song.

 

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 involve all ages in our 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.
