The Kingdom of Heaven is more than just some mysterious place that people get to enter once they pass from this earth, if they have ticked all the boxes.  The Kingdom of Heaven is actually right now.  Anyone who claims to follow Jesus is to live out kingdom principles on a daily basis.  Throughout the Summer of 2024 and into the early Fall we are going to look at what Jesus taught about living in the kingdom.  We will discover that as a community of faith, we all are responsible to help one another live the Kingdom of Heaven, right now.

    Kingdom Apprentices
    We begin a new sermon series entitled "Living the Kingdom of Heaven...Now."  In this sermon we define the Kingdom of Heaven as used in Matthew's gospel and we look at some characteristics that should define each of us who claim to follow Jesus.

    Divine Roadmap (part 2 Mt.7:21-27)
    In the final two word pictures of the Sermon on the Mount we are reminded that we need to do the right things with the right heart.

    Divine Road Map (part 1 Matthew 5:13-20)
    In what may be called the epilogue of the Sermon on the Mount Jesus challenges his listeners and us with choices.
  • Apr 28, 2024Kingdom Living in Relationship (Mt 7:6-12)
    Apr 28, 2024
    Kingdom Living in Relationship (Mt 7:6-12)
    We all know what it is like to deal with difficult people. As representatives of our Heavenly Father, we need discernment to know how to live in a godly way. It is not easy. We also have a God who knows what we need and implores us to ask him for our needs and learn to wait on his provision. Discernment is part of daily living in God's Kingdom as we build relationships.
  • Apr 21, 2024Watch Out For Sawdust (Mt. 7:1-6)
    Apr 21, 2024
    Watch Out For Sawdust (Mt. 7:1-6)
    The old saying goes, "We don't like in others, what we don't like in ourselves." Jesus reminds us in a very clear and even humorous way that when we judge others unfairly, we end up looking foolish, and we take over what God has reserved for himself. We need wisdom to know when to critique another, when to be quiet, and when to focus on our own issues.
  • Apr 14, 2024Kingdom Investment Strategy pt. 2 (Mt. 6:25-34)
    Apr 14, 2024
    Kingdom Investment Strategy pt. 2 (Mt. 6:25-34)
    We all want to live our best life now. In this very familiar passage we discover that it is when we trust fully that God is willing and able to meet our needs that we can live a life that is focused, unhurried, and satisfying. It truly can be our best life now.
  • Apr 7, 2024Kingdom Investment Strategy (pt 1 Mt 6:19-24)
    Apr 7, 2024
    Kingdom Investment Strategy (pt 1 Mt 6:19-24)
    Someone has said, “What you own eventually owns you.” There is some truth to that statement. Consider carefully that which you think is valuable. How does it help you now? What difference will it make in your quality of life next month? We have a human tendency to hold on to our stuff. God has a better plan but it requires a change of heart.
  • Mar 31, 2024“Second Chances” (Mark 16:7)
    Mar 31, 2024
    “Second Chances” (Mark 16:7)
    Second chances. We have all needed them at some time or another. In the story of Peter, we discover that the risen, living Jesus Christ is a forgiving, Lord and Savior. His mercy is wide, his grace has no boundaries; his forgiveness is complete. On this Resurrection Sunday we celebrate our God who gives us second chances, and more.

    A Sharper Focus: Word Pictures from Palm Sunday
    There are times in our lives when our focus just seems to be sharper. We are more aware of our surroundings, more aware of what is important, more aware of our closest relationships. It seems this was the case with Jesus from his triumphal ride into Jerusalem until his death on calvary. As we look at the focus of Jesus, may we consider how we can sharpen our focus in our daily lives.
  • Mar 17, 2024Check your motives (Matthew 6:1-18)
    Mar 17, 2024
    Check your motives (Matthew 6:1-18)
    Followers of Jesus exercise various disciplines as an expression of their inner relationship with Jesus. They don't always parade their efforts on a proverbial stage for the world because God is their audience. Jesus challenges us to check our motives for why we do what we do.
  • Mar 10, 2024Loving our Enemies (Matthew 5:43-48)
    Mar 10, 2024
    Loving our Enemies (Matthew 5:43-48)
    We all have people who do not care for us. In fact some may actively oppose us. Jesus reminds us, that as people who are characterized as Christ Followers, we are to not attack or just tolerate our enemies, we are to love them and pray for them. Just as God's grace is evident in their lives whether they recognize it our not, our grace and proactive love should also be on display as we interact with them.
  • Mar 3, 2024Persons of Peace (Matthew 5:38-42)
    Mar 3, 2024
    Persons of Peace (Matthew 5:38-42)
    Conventional wisdom says: "If they hit you; hit them back harder." On the one hand we can understand the desire to protect ourselves. But on the other hand, Jesus gives us a completely different way of living in the world. When we are confident in who we are in Jesus, there is a grace that stirs curiosity in others and gives us a strength to manage difficult times. (We apologize for the poor audio quality for the first 10 minutes.)
  • Feb 25, 2024The Necessity of Integrity (Matthew 5:33-37)
    Feb 25, 2024
    The Necessity of Integrity (Matthew 5:33-37)
    This part of the Sermon on the Mount deals with the issue of integrity. God expects us, as followers of Jesus to say what we mean and mean what we say and work through the challenges. When we are people of integrity, we can set an example for others in our sphere of influence.
  • Feb 11, 2024Godly Purity: Authentic Relationships (Mt 5:27-32)
    Feb 11, 2024
    Godly Purity: Authentic Relationships (Mt 5:27-32)
    We seem to bombarded from all sides with images, lyrics, and entertainment that challenges any standard of purity. Godly purity is reflected in the mindset that holds that each person is a person of dignity and not an object. In a very stunning way we are reminded in this passage that any godly standard of purity begins in the heart and we are each responsible to pursue it. Godly purity impacts our most important human relationships.

 

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.
