In 2023 we are inviting you to take a journey with us through the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Rome.  While there is a great deal of theology packed into the 16 chapters of this letter, there is also immense value for daily living.  We sometimes fail to remember that Paul was not just writing some theological paper, but he was writing a letter, to real people, in a real city, with real lives.  And like any group of people trying to get along, they also had some struggles.  We are going to do our best to keep all of that in mind as we explore Romans together each Sunday.   A key question we will ask week in and week out is simply, “What role does God’s grace play in my life right now?”   Please plan to be part of the journey each Sunday at 10:00 AM.   We would so enjoy seeing you in person, and yet we are also excited when you choose to join our livestream at

A Sovereign God Who is Merciful (Romans 11)
In a survey of a lengthy chapter that deals with the interplay between God's people Israel and all who are not of Israel but still follow God we find the theme of mercy woven throughout the chapter. God's mercy accepts, and comes without conditions. It is available to all and a reason for great praise.

    A Sovereign God who is Accessible (Romans 10)
    Sometimes we can think that God is aloof, or at least inaccessible. When we talk about God being holy, righteous, and sovereign, it makes us feel that he is out of reach. What we will learn today is that throughout history God has actually made himself readily accessible to those who pursue him. And he still is.

    God’s Sovereignty and My Choices (Romans 9)
    When it comes to God’s work in our world we need to guard against thinking that since God is in control what we do does not matter. The fact is that God does hold us each accountable for our choices, especially regarding our relationship with Him. However, God does have a plan and He will carry it out. We are each invited to be part of His plan, and he is pleased when we accept the

    The Power of God’s Love (Romans 8:31-39)
    We often think of a mother's love as one of the most powerful forces. In one of the most familiar passages in the book of Romans, Paul reminds us that there is nothing on earth, heaven, or all the universe that can separate us from God's love. We each need this assurance each day and especially when life gets hard.

    The Best Is Yet To Come (Romans 8:18-30)
    When we look at our world strictly from a human perspective it is very easy to lose hope. Even the human interest stories that seem to wrap up the evening news, make us feel good for a moment but don't make a permanent difference in our mixed-up world. However, in the constant abiding presence of our God, we are assured that He has a plan that works in spite of all we wrestle with. God's goal is that we each be conformed to the likeness of Jesus.

    New and Improved (Romans 8:1-17)
    The Apostle Paul leads us from the struggles with sin to the amazing fact that in Christ we are forgiven and no longer condemned. In this new and improved reality we have all we need through the power of the Holy Spirit to be better; to be transformed. But we discover that we still need to cooperate with the Holy Spirit by tapping into the power He provides to overcome our human nature that is always there.
  • Apr 23, 2023“The Great Struggle” (Romans 7:7-25)
    Apr 23, 2023
    “The Great Struggle” (Romans 7:7-25)
    Paul reveals to his readers and to us that he understands how we each struggle to do what is right and we each feel guilty when we seem to wrestle with temptation. Sometimes we do give in and fail. How do we manage the battle in our hearts to be obedient to Christ? How do we reconcile our own failures?

    Extreme Spiritual Makeover (part 2 Romans 6:15-7:6)
    Paul uses imagery to reveal to his readers the freedom we have in Christ. We are free from the slave market of sin and free from the law and able to belong to Jesus. Sometimes we become complacent and think we can simply live life on our own terms and fix things with God later. This passage reminds us that we have amazing freedom to be all that God wants us to be in Jesus Christ.
  • Apr 9, 2023Do You Believe This? (John 11)

    Do You Believe This? (John 11)
    What you and I believe about Jesus and resurrection is vital to our faith. Jesus makes a powerful statement in John 11:26. He claims exclusivity. He is the resurrection and he is the life. Do you believe this? In this passage we will see power under control, and a willingness to step into the mess of our lives. That is our Jesus. Do you believe him?

    One Week, Three People, Three Lessons
    Series: Palm Sunday
    Jesus has unique encounters with many during his last week before crucifixion. In this sermon we will look at three people in Luke's gospel. The widow, Barabbas, and the thief on the cross next to Jesus. From these three people we will discover lessons of faith and grace and mercy. We will be reminded that we serve a God who has not treated us our sins deserved.

    Extreme Spiritual Makeover (Part 1 – Romans 6:1-14)
    There is a misconception that since God is a God of grace it is ok to sin because God loves to forgive. The truth is that God's grace should be a motivating factor for each person that follows Jesus to change their lives. God is obviously not excited about our choosing sin, but he is excited about our desire to learn to be like Jesus. It takes a spiritual makeover to begin the journey of being like Jesus.

    A Tale of Two Men (Romans 5:12-21)
    Paul takes his readers through a compare and contrast scenario. He looks back at Genesis 3 and reveals that in Adam we were all subject to the ravages of sin that mars and destroys everything, and leads to death. But in contrast to Adam is Christ whose righteous act of dying on the cross has opened the door for all to receive God's grace and be declared righteous in God's sight.

    True Peace (Romans 5:1-11)
    We all have different ideas when we think of the concept of peace. Often it accompanies the ideas of contentment or having all our material and relational needs met. In this passage, Paul outlines what it means to have peace with God. As we examine this passage may we each desire to have peace with God. We will discover it is the foundation of a purposeful daily life.

    No Earning Power (Romans 4:9-25)
    Bridging the gap between Jew and Gentile, the Apostle Paul shows us that we cannot somehow earn our way into God's favor. He uses Abraham as his example who was put in an impossible situation and saw God come through in ways he could not have imagined. We have no earning power with God. We only have our faith.

    Trust In The Lord (Proverbs 3:5-6)
    Series: Other Voices
    Proverbs 3:5-6 are some of the most widely known verses in the Christian world, but it is possible, that in its familiarity we’ve misunderstood the difference between trust as belief and trust as faith. This sermon explores a biblical approach to trusting God with an eternal perspective in a complicated world.


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.


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.


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.
Camp Oak Hills
The Navigators
Slavic Missionary Service
World Gospel Mission
Wycliffe Bible Translators
