Roseland United Methodist Church is nestled in the North Carolina sandhills of southern Moore County. Located in a peaceful rural setting, we are no more than a ten minute drive from Pinebluff, Aberdeen, Pinehurst, Hoffman, and the Foxfire Community. We welcome guests to join us on Sunday mornings for our worship service at 11:00 a.m.  There is a nursery for under the age of 5 during worship.  A coffee break is taken at 9:45 until 10 am during that time we list concerns of the congregation, the sick as well as birthdays!  At 10 o'clock there are Sunday school classes for everyone, including 2 adult classes.

Our Pastor is Rev.Janet Balasko.



                                        UPDATE FROM YOUR RUMC PPR COMMITTEE:

Roseland UMC,

We wanted to update everyone on the pastoral transition that is occurring in July.   

Rev. Janet Lea Balasko will begin her appointment with Roseland on July 1, 2017.  Due to family conflicts, Janet will not be in the pulpit for the first time until July 9, 2017.  Hugh Madison assisted by Tom Rindfleisch will lead worship services on July 2, 2017.   We hope and encourage everyone to come out and pack Roseland on July 9th to welcome Janet to her new home.   After worship on July 9th we hope everyone can join us for cookout and reception for Janet on the church porch.  This is a great time to meet Janet and mingle, enjoying the fellowship of others in the congregation.  You don't need to bring anything unless you feel like showing off your favorite dessert for others to share. 

In a couple of weeks the PPR committee would like to pass around a sign up sheet for you to review.   We think it is extremely important that Janet has an opportunity to get to know each of the folks that make Roseland UMC so special.   We would like each family to sign up to invite Janet into your home for a meal and conversation or whatever you are comfortable with to allow her to get to know your passions in life and within the church.

Also please remember that the first week Janet is at Roseland we will be holding our VBS with Taylor Memorial Baptist Church.  This is another great example of how we can get to know Janet while serving the kids of our community.   Each night from July 10-14, we will open with a meal and entertain VBS from  6:15-8:30

Below is a simple bio that Janet wanted us to share about herself.

Leadership style

My hope and prayer is that I have encouraged, helped, and challenged members of the churches I have served to find their God given gifts and to use them to the glory of God. After more years spent in the parish, I believe that collaboration in achieving a goal is the key. We do not always have to agree how something is done, but we can agree on the reason why it should be done.

Personal Statement

Hope is my favorite word! Hope in becoming who God intends me to be and hope in being able to see another person’s heart to help them see God’s plan. I hope to help change the world for the better.
