In a few weeks we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  As we anticipate that time we will take a brief journey through the Gospel of John.  On this journey we will discover that during the most trying days of his life on this earth Jesus shows us that he cares, serves, comforts, prays, and restores.  From his example we have a model for dealing with difficult events.  That model begins with learning that during each step of the journey, Jesus was focused not on the events as much as he was on the Heavenly Father.  When our focus is truly on God we can navigate the twists and turns in our own journey.  Join us on Facebook Live each Sunday at 10:00 AM as we Journey to Resurrection.

Jesus Comforts (John 14)
It seems that now more than ever we need comfort. Not as an idol to worship but as a balm for our anxiety. One week into “sheltering in place” and it is beginning to lose its sense of adventure. In John 14 the followers of Jesus are about to experience a new reality. Their lives are going to be turned upside down and nothing will be the same again. They needed words of comfort then, just as we do today, and Jesus delivers.

    Contentment is the Key (Exodus 20:17)
    “I wish I had….” “I wish I could make…” “I wish someone would give me…” These are all statements that could reflect discontent and could lead to coveting. God wants his people to be people who depend on Him to meet their needs and to be content with His provision. The problem with wanting something so badly that it becomes an obsession is that I end up making that person, that desire, that goal, that object a substitute for God and His sufficiency. Learning contentment is the key.

    More than just not lying (Exodus 20:16)
    All to often we reduce the ninth commandment to a simple statement of “Don’t lie.” Granted that is part of this commandment, but it goes beyond just being honest. As we examine this commandment we will learn its breadth and its depth. It speaks to the very character of who we are to be and it reminds us of the importance of loving our neighbor as ourselves, in each circumstance.

    If God Owns It All… (Exodus 20:15)
    In a community being able to trust one another is at a premium. To take something that belongs to another person undercuts that trust and divides the community. What is more, if we truly believe God owns it all, but has entrusted property to another person, then from whom is one really stealing.
  • Feb 16, 2020The Freedom of Faithfulness (Exodus 20:14)

    The Freedom of Faithfulness (Exodus 20:14)
    The seventh command is all about faithfulness. At first glance any of us would say it is about faithfulness in marriage. But the ramifications are deeper. One who is faithful in marriage is faithful in other areas of life. Jesus would go so far as to remind us that this command had to do with how we even think about members of the opposite sex. So it also means we are faithful in our hearts. There is great freedom in being faithful.

    Respecting Human Life as Image Bearers (Exodus 20:13)
    Each human being is created in the image of God. Therefore, human life is sacred in God’s eyes. The sixth command is straightforward, literally rendered “No murder.” To take an innocent human life in a premeditated, violent manner is to attack the very image of God. But what about attacking and assassinating the character of that person. As we delve into this command the heart of it is to respect deeply in all ways one another. We are the image bearers.
  • Feb 2, 2020Honor and Respect (Exodus 20:12)

    Honor and Respect (Exodus 20:12)
    The first four commandments deal with one’s relationship with God. The final six deal with one’s relationship with others. Just as God is our ultimate authority, our parents are our first human authority. We will discover in this command how our response to primary relationships can have impact for our entire lives.
  • Jan 26, 2020Freedom in Rest (Exodus 20:8-11)

    Freedom in Rest (Exodus 20:8-11)
    God did not create us to be on the go 24/7/365. We all need rest. Not just a three week vacation once a year, but a regular rhythm of work and rest. When we operate within a rhythm of work and rest, we are healthier, more productive, and just easier to live with. Consider your own rhythm of work and rest, where does God come into your routine?
  • Jan 20, 2020What’s in a Name? (Exodus 20:7)

    What’s in a Name? (Exodus 20:7)
    Sometimes we just skirt by the third commandment and assure ourselves that we are okay because we don’t swear. But the third commandment is more than just a prohibition against uttering profanity. It is a reminder that in all of our words and deeds we are to remember that we represent the person and character of God on a daily basis.
  • Jan 13, 2020Staying Focused (Exodus 20:4-6)

    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.
 
 
 
 

 

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.
