Some things you can just count on.  One of those things is the annual build up to the Holiday Season.  From early “Black Friday” Deals on Amazon and in retails stores, to our favorite Holiday traditions such as movies, concerts, church programs, and family dinners, this season comes at us fast and can leave us breathless.  For some it is the most wonderful time of the year.  For others, not so much, as the “Holiday Blues” take over.  But eventually, the decorations, come down, the wrapping paper scraps are taken to recycling and life continues.  This year our Advent Series will address “Life after the manger.”  By that we mean how can we live a meaningful life after all the Holiday Season busyness and stress has subsided?  Life after the manger, can be even more fulfilling than the most precious Holiday tradition.  Join us each Sunday at 10:00 am this Advent season, beginning on December 3 to discover the joy of life after the manger.

Act 4 – A Bigger Plan (Ruth 4)
God has a plan. God has always had a plan. Throughout the Old Testament we see God preserving His Covenant promises and preparing the nation for the Messiah. Ruth and Boaz are the great-grand parents of David. Matthew chapter 1 reveals to us that Jesus is from the line of David which ran through Ruth and Boaz. God always has a plan. And in the grand plan of God, He still sees you.

    Act 3 – A Strange Proposal (Ruth 3)
    Cultures change. Customs change. In what is arguably the most unique "proposal" in the Bible, we find several realities in play. Trust, vulnerability, grace, compassion, and kindness all display themselves in this most strange proposal and the response.

    Act 2 – Divine Orchestration (Ruth 2)
    God is always at work. Sometimes we are very much aware of his work. Yet other times we discover after the fact that God was working behind the scenes. Some have called this God’s Divine Orchestration. As we continue the four part drama of the book of Ruth we discover God’s Divine Orchestration, in the routine of life.

    Act 1 – Faithful Commitment (Ruth 1)
    As we begin a four-part series today we are introduced to our main characters in this story. In the midst of what was a tragic and impossible situation, we find Ruth willing to forsake everything she knew in order to care for her mother-in-law, Naomi. We don't know what Ruth knew about the God of Israel, but we see in her character and her choices a person of faithful commitment.

    Keep In Step (Galatians 5:24-26)
    How do we live in a way that reflects the 9 characteristics of the Fruit of the Spirit? That is the real question. What does it mean to crucify the flesh? The answer to this is not as hard or as complex as some may make it. We need to walk stride for stride in life with the Holy Spirit. But we have to make that choice and we have to determine to do so daily. Keeping in step with the Spirit will change your life and it is a daily choice.
  • Oct 22, 2023Keep it in check (Galatians 5:23)

    Keep it in check (Galatians 5:23)
    A person who is out of control is a dangerous person. And person who shows little self-restraint is a danger to themselves and others. The final aspect of the fruit of the Spirit is self-control. The ability to control one's passion, to keep in check one's desires is an ability that requires super-natural power. When we show self-control we are putting the Spirit of God in our lives on display. We are leaving room for God to work in us and through us.
  • Oct 15, 2023The Power of Gentle Humility (Galatians 5:23)

    The Power of Gentle Humility (Galatians 5:23)
    Gentleness, mildness, humility. These descriptors are not the stuff of cultural
    heroes. These descriptors will not get one a starting position on an athletic
    team and may not help one climb the corporate ladder. But they are the stuff of
    our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. When we understand the power we have
    and the character strength it takes to control that power we are
    aware of the need to be under the power and influence of the Holy Spirit in our

    Faithful to the End (Galatians 5:22)
    Who do you trust? Who do you know that will tell you the truth and stick with you when the truth is hard? Who do you know who has been faithful to you? Each of us should desire to be that person. When we are faithful we help others to have confidence and assurance. Faithfulness points others to a God who has promised to never leave or forsake us.
  • Oct 1, 2023Goodness is for Everyone (Galatians 5:22)
    Oct 1, 2023
    Goodness is for Everyone (Galatians 5:22)
    Coupled with kindness is the characteristic of being good. To be good in this passage, not only means to be nice, polite, and helpful; but it is a character trait that reflects a heart of generosity. One thing about our God is that he is generous. Out of his love, he gave his Son so that by believing in his Son we might have life. We will consider what it means to exercise godly goodness and generosity.

    Kindness: Reflecting God’s Character (Gal. 5:22)
    Some say that social media has opened the door for a growing lack of civility in our culture. But the reality is that the lack of civility was already there and social media just gave it a broader platform. God's people are to be kind, which includes being honest, doing the right thing, having a heart of benevolence. When kindness is present in our lives and in our interactions we do make a difference.
  • Sep 17, 2023Patience…Now! (Galatians 5:22)

    Patience…Now! (Galatians 5:22)
    We live in an impatient world. We want our Amazon delivery to come in 24 hours, but it’s even better if it arrives in a matter of hours. The lottery promotions tell us we can have it all now...if we win. There is a maturity to being patient. There is a healthy perspective in knowing what is worth waiting for. It is interesting that this characteristic follows that of peace. Maybe there is a connection.
  • Sep 10, 2023The Blessing of Peace (Galatians 5:22-23)
    Sep 10, 2023
    The Blessing of Peace (Galatians 5:22-23)
    Peace is the third aspect of the fruit of the Spirit. It is a characteristic that comes directly from God. It is a characteristic that gives us strength and hope. Jesus told us that the peacemakers are blessed. We will discover the true nature of peace and how it reflects the Holy Spirit who indwells us.
  • Sep 3, 2023The Strength of Joy (Galatians 5:22)
    Sep 3, 2023
    The Strength of Joy (Galatians 5:22)
    Joy is one of those words that we tend to either ignore or some over do it. What is joy? How do I get it? How do I keep it? How can I be joyful when I am hurt, or grieving, or struggling to figure life out. Since joy is part of the fruit of the Spirit, then it will help all of us to have a greater understanding of how to discover and grow in this area and discover why the joy of the Lord is our strength.
  • Aug 27, 2023Love is the Key (Galatians 5:22)
    Aug 27, 2023
    Love is the Key (Galatians 5:22)
    There are nine aspects or characteristics of the fruit of the Spirit. The foundational characteristic is love. We will define love as used in the Bible and look at several characteristics of love that reflect the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We will discover that love is more than an emotion
  • Aug 20, 2023Freedom within Boundaries (Galatians 5)
    Aug 20, 2023
    Freedom within Boundaries (Galatians 5)
    As we open this series we will begin with defining freedom as Paul does in Galatians and get some background of the letter. We will also look briefly at the characteristics that are the complete opposite of the Fruit of The Spirit. We need to understand where not to go so we can more fully understand who God wants us to be. One thing that is clear is that self-indulgent living is not the path to God honoring freedom.


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
World Gospel Mission
Wycliffe Bible Translators
