This year for Advent, we will embark on a journey to “Rediscover Christmas.” And yet what we will find in the middle of confusing and uncertain times is the stability we have in Jesus. He came into the world in confusing and uncertain times and it is in him and him alone that we find true hope, peace, joy, and love. Join us each Sunday at 10:00 AM in person or on Facebook Live to “Rediscover Christmas.”   Advent begins Sunday, November 29.

Sermons

Hope in Uncertain Times: Luke 2:22-38
Hope. It is often a word we use as a synonym for “wish.” But hope in the Bible is not used as a wish, it is a certainty that is yet to be fully realized. Hope in the Bible is based on God’s promises. We will see two individuals today who lived in hope day in and day out and were not disappointed. They saw with their own eyes what God had promised. Their story and their hope can encourage us. Howington. Released: 2020.

    A Lament When One is Down – Psalm 142
    A cave is typically dark, damp, and lonely. For most people caves are intriguing from a distance. People also face “caves” in life. We at times find ourselves in dark, lonely places in our soul. David did. We find a poignant cry to God in Psalm 142 that apparently was uttered when David was in the cave. We find a reminder that in our darkest moments, the hope that God is there can be enough.

    Psalm 94 – A Community Lament over Injustice
    God is a God of justice. God expects his people to be people of justice. In this community lament the psalmist cries out to God for the way the rich and powerful are treating the powerless in the community. What is most disturbing is that the tone of the psalm points to the fact that the oppressors are actually part of the larger community of the nation. The call is for God to exact his righteous judgment against oppression of the weak.
  • Nov 8, 2020Lament over one’s own sin – Psalm 51
    Nov 8, 2020
    Lament over one’s own sin – Psalm 51
    Sometimes we exercise the prayer language of lament when we have suffered a personal loss. But what about when we have caused the pain and the loss due to our own sin. Psalm 51 is David’s prayer of lament due to his own sinful acts. When sin empties us, God in his grace still hears us.
  • Nov 1, 2020Lament – Crying out to God: Psalm 13

    Lament – Crying out to God: Psalm 13
    No matter who you are, or how strong you believe your faith to be, you have no doubt asked God questions like: “Where are you?” “How can you not see what I am going through?” “Why do you not act more quickly?” These are the questions of Lament. God has given us Lament as a prayer language to put words to our grief and struggles.

    Jude: Stay Strong
    Often times we emphasize the content of one’s teaching and we will warn against false teaching or a false narrative. The book of Jude is also a warning to folks to beware of false teachers. But his approach does not delve into the specific nature of the teaching. Instead he focuses on the character and behaviors of false teachers. The readers in the First Century as well and you and I today are warned to beware of those who use God’s grace as an excuse to be selfish and sinful.
  • Oct 18, 20203 John: Walk the Walk
    Oct 18, 2020
    3 John: Walk the Walk
    God expects us to not just claim to follow him, but that we actually do so. Our actions should support our claims. Another word for it is to be authentic. In this brief letter we are introduced to three men. Two are authentic, they walk the walk and the description of them is refreshing. The third is a man who is all about himself. We can learn much from this brief letter about what it means to be people who walk the walk in following Jesus.
  • Oct 11, 20202 John: Stay Grounded
    Oct 11, 2020
    2 John: Stay Grounded
    How do you know? How can you tell if what someone believes “squares” with what you understand the Bible to teach? In this brief letter, we discover a core reality of our faith that will help us make wise decisions regarding what others teach. One thing that we see in all of John’s writings in the Bible is an emphasis on the love of Christ and how our obedience to his teaching is our best expression of our love for Jesus.
  • Oct 4, 2020Philemon: Useless to Useful

    Philemon: Useless to Useful
    Philemon is the most personal letter of the entire New Testament. It is also a very difficult letter in that it deals with a run away slave and for us in the 21st century that brings up a host of emotions. As we look at this letter we will see the compassion of the Apostle Paul and an appeal to Philemon to show unprecedented grace and mercy to one who has wronged him and his household. Forgiveness, compassion, and restoration are among the themes we will see in this letter.
  • Sep 27, 2020Obadiah: The Foolishness of Pride

    Obadiah: The Foolishness of Pride
    We know the truth: Pride does come before a fall. We each have, at one time or another, been the unfortunate recipient of the pain caused by the pride of another. And yet we tend to struggle with this most tenacious temptation. If we are honest we all struggle with pride. It rears its ugly head in so many ways. In Obadiah we see what God thinks of pride and how he deals with it. Hopefully, we will be challenged to make some changes in our own lives.

    Making One Another Better (Heb. 10:19-25)
    We have a specific purpose for meeting weekly. Yes it is about expressing our heart to God. Yes it is about learning from God’s Word. But it is also about coming alongside one another. It is about using the brief time we have to make each other better. God expects us each to stir up one another to love and good deeds. God expects us to encourage one another as we gather. Who will you encourage today?
  • Sep 13, 2020Forbear with and Forgive One Another (Col 3.12-14)
    Sep 13, 2020
    Forbear with and Forgive One Another (Col 3.12-14)
    We all have idiosyncrasies that others have to put up with. It stands to reason that we would understand that we should put up with others as they put up with us. We all have hurt or offended someone and longed for their forgiveness. It stands to reason that we would want to grant forgiveness to others. And yet it seems we tend to struggle with granting to others what we desire. Our passage today reminds us of the model of Christ who bears with us and forgives us.
  • Sep 6, 2020Submit to One Another out of reverence to Christ (Eph. 5:21)
    Sep 6, 2020
    Submit to One Another out of reverence to Christ (Eph. 5:21)
    This is one of the “one another” passages that elicits some of the strongest reactions from people. Submission in our world is sometimes equated with weakness and defeat. What we will discover in this passage and the explanatory verses that follow is that when we follow God’s Word and submit to one another, the result is harmony and unity.
  • Aug 30, 2020Serve One Another in Love (Galatians 5:13-16)
    Aug 30, 2020
    Serve One Another in Love (Galatians 5:13-16)
    It is easy to “serve” someone who can return the favor. It is easy to “serve” when there is recognition for the service. But what about serving those who cannot repay you? What about serving when no one else sees? As we look at this one another command we will need to get a broader picture of what it means to serve sacrificially, just as Jesus served us.
  • Aug 23, 2020“Greet one another with a holy kiss” (Romans 16:16)
    Aug 23, 2020
    “Greet one another with a holy kiss” (Romans 16:16)
    Series: One Another
    This is one of those “one another” passages that causes those of us who have grown up in conservative churches to snicker. That would never happen in our church. Too often we focus on the cultural phrase and miss the importance of the command. What does it mean to greet one another? Why would that be important? How can we live it out in a global pandemic? We will explore these questions and discover how vital it is that we learn to greet one another.
 
 
 
 

 

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.
