Welcome to “The Hill”

A Welcome from our Pastor
During these unprecedented times, as our nation faces the threat of a serious coronavirus, I know that God's people are eager to worship and serve the Lord. Perhaps we all share the sentiments felt by the Israelites struggling under Egyptian rule, who hoped and prayed for God's deliverance. Almighty God heard their cries and used Moses to both speak a commanding word to Pharaoh, "Let my people go," and lead them out of captivity. Our Lord hears our cries and will deliver us from the bondage of this danger and threat. Meanwhile, here at Pleasant Hill, we will continue to worship and serve the Lord. Our services are open (with safety measures in place) and ministries are proceeding. Nursery and Children's Church are available for families.

If you are looking for a safe place to worship, then you are cordially invited to drop in on us at Pleasant Hill and experience what God is doing. You will find a loving, faithful, and expectant group of God's people who desire to worship and lift up the name of Jesus, Love all, Reach all, Teach all, and Send all of His disciples into a broken world. Come as you are. We are saving a place for you.

We are located only four miles from I-40 and yet have the feel of a small country church that is made up of a fellowship of believers who are bursting with love and are excited about loving, reaching, teaching, and serving all that come seeking a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. We have a rich history of faith, obedience, and worship and believe that this is the time for Pleasant Hill to continue to be the great beacon of faith that it has been for generations, as well as begin to strengthen our fellowship and outreach. The church stands looking out over the community of Enola, with gorgeous views of the mountains and orchards that surround her. That’s why we affectionately call our place, “The Hill.”

It is my privilege to lead this amazing church to carry out our vision to lift up the name of Jesus, to preach the Word of God, to reach the lost, and to teach, disciple and ready God’s children to reach out to a lost and dying world. Sound like a great place?
You bet it is! Come on out and see.

Dr. Jack R. Hodges, Jr., Senior Pastor
Pastor's Weekly Note:
Happy fall ya'll! May the joy and peace of the Lord fill you even in these strange, difficult, and unprecedented times. Here at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, we face the challenges of meeting for worship and Bible study weekly by moving ahead in faith coupled with wisdom and caution. Our fellowship and attendance has been growing each week, as fellow members and others shed their fears and rejoin us for worship and celebration of the Word and goodness of the Lord. Remember, we have our annual Shoebox Party/Mission's Supper coming up on Sunday evening, October 4th at 5:00 p.m. and Homecoming/Senior Citizen's Day on October 11th. See the Events page for details of these and other upcoming events.

Our deacons, led by new deacon chairman, Brian Barrier, are ready to minister as servants and reach out to needs in our congregation. Our ministries to our children and youth have been undergirded by wonderful and faithful volunteer leaders, who have stepped into the void and are passionately ministering to the needs of our children and youth. All Sunday and Wednesday studies and ministries are active, with the exception of Sunday School (which we hope will resume by the first of next year). Sunday evening "Children in Action" (5:30 p.m. in the Sparks room) and a Wednesday evening children’s study (6:00 p.m. in the Anchor room) provide opportunities for our children and adults to be back in Bible study. Check out the Youth page for a list of all ongoing Youth activities.
