Celebrate Recovery

Sep 8, 2016   //   by Pastor Tony Zibolski   //   Pastor's Corner  //  No Comments

I am so very excited to tell you about a new ministry coming to Rosedale Church October 28th, 2016. Celebrate Recovery is a support based group for hurts, habits, and hang-ups that will be meeting at the church once a week. This really is for each and everyone of us because we all have baggage that we need to get rid of from our lives. This new ministry is a Christ-centered 12 step program based on Matthew Chapter 5:1-5:12. There are other 12 step programs out there but I love that through Scripture and God’s love we can tell them that they can have a personal relationship with the higher power and we know His name is Jesus Christ. Please be in prayer as we launch this group and believe that the Lord will touch people’s lives. I believe that this is big enough and if we were honest that this new small group will in its maturity have something for everyone.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope that you are anticipating a great and prosperous New Year for 2013.

You know what makes a New Year good? Learning from our mistakes of the previous year and trusting God to help us not make them again in the coming year.  Often we hear words like ‘getting in the groove’, but I think that is what gets us in trouble: getting right back in the same spot we were before and doing the same old thing the same old way!

Here is a quick and easy receipe for the New Year

Being a member

Aug 29, 2012   //   by Pastor Tony Zibolski   //   Pastor's Corner  //  No Comments

As I prepare to start another membership class, I am excited to see God doing some tremendous things in the life of Rosedale. It made me  think of the reasons that someone would want to join a church and become a member. To some of us who have been a part of the church for a long time, we sometimes forget what we have signed up for when we become a part of the body of Chirst. The decision to go from an occasional attender to a member of the church is one that we should take seriously because the Lord puts responsibility and blessings on our decison. Here are some of the things brought to my remembrance.

Enjoying the Ride at Rosedale

As our church prepares for the second night of Vacation Bible School, I reflect back on all the hard work that has gotten us to this point. It is a team of 20-25 people being dedicated to the cause of reaching kids for Christ and showing them that we love them also as well as all the hours of prep and sweat equity that goes into the project that has become our superbowl of outreach. You would think that positive response would be 100 percent, participation would be 100 percent, and the excitement of the end result would be 100 percent. The longer that I pastor, the only thing I know 100 percent is that you will not get 100 percent.

Goliath Defeated

Jul 3, 2012   //   by Pastor Tony Zibolski   //   Pastor's Corner  //  No Comments

I was so excited for the celebration service on Sunday. It was and is a dream come true for the faithful at Rosdale who never give up on what God is doing. It was alot of work for so many to put feet to what the Lord has allowed us to have. It was and is a sacrifcie to those that every week invest in what God has been doing at Rosedale. I know that I cannot thank each of you for that sacrifice; but I can tell you that the Lord sees and He can and will bless you for your faithfulness. How many people will be in the kingdom because we have given them an opportunity to experience the Lord in a fresh and new way? How many people, because of your investment, will see the love of Christ through the life of those who believe in them?

Another Fathers Day Behind Us

Jun 19, 2012   //   by Pastor Tony Zibolski   //   Pastor's Corner  //  No Comments

Good morning, everyone.

Another great service Sunday, Father’s Day! A day we lift up and remember to thank our fathers for all the great things they do for us. For some, it’s a day to remember what our fathers did for us as we gather up all the memories and keepsakes that we have treasured in our hearts. As some of you know, this week the Lord would not let me get away from the message of prayer and the power of prayer to a believer’s life. In Jesus’ priestly prayer to HIs Father recorded in John chapter 17, Jesus prayed for Himself, for His disciples, and for each one of us as future believers.

Tipping Point

The construction for the Multi-media projection project will begin in 10 days!

This has been a long process coming with alot of thought and hard work put into it to bring us to this pivital stage. I look at this momment in the life of Rosedale as a “tipping point”– a point where we can go to the next level of worship and reach a new group of worshippers who are technology-minded to join us. This group of young people knows its way around computers, and are extremely familiar with iPads and smartphones, and is not hung up on doing everything the old way.

Going from the Red Zone to the End Zone

Feb 29, 2012   //   by Pastor Tony Zibolski   //   Pastor's Corner  //  No Comments

Good moring, Church.

I know everyone is getting into the racing mode right now, but take it from a person suffering from the absence of football. I want to make a difference in someone’s life more than I miss football! In football, there is a term: “the red zone.” The red zone is the 20 yards before the end zone. I want to make a difference in lives and take them from the red zone to the end zone! So many are close to scoring but come up just a little bit short. So many just need a good block to help them score! Lord, help me to be their blocker! Amen.

Sharpening Each Other

Feb 21, 2012   //   by Pastor Tony Zibolski   //   Pastor's Corner  //  No Comments

Ever make a mistake? Ever say the wrong thing?

Of course you have, and so have I. We have all engaged our mouths before we engaged our minds and thought our words through. We have all had to say that we are sorry for our quick response that has hurt someone. Listen to the words of  Solomon, Proverbs 27:17: “As iron sharpoens iron, so one man sharpens another.” We need each other!

Book Endorsement for Easy Understanding of the Bible

Feb 1, 2012   //   by Pastor Tony Zibolski   //   Pastor's Corner  //  No Comments

Hi Church family,

I have been reading a book by Dr. William H. Marty entitled “The Whole Bible Story – Everything That Happens in the Bible in Plain English.” This book is a great way for new believers and young discipled believers to understand the events and promises from the Bible. It is from Bethany House and the cost is $12.99. It would make a great present for someone you know that has struggled to understand some of the things of the Bible. It answers  for them the questions “How do I read this? Where do I start? What’s in it?” They can read their Bible and then read the paraphrased interpretation and have their own Bible study. Simply reading the Bible from cover to cover can be a tough task. The Bible is sixty-six books and the storyline is not in chronological order.
