Our Church

Rose Point Reformed Presbyterian Church is a country church preaching the good news of the gospel to the world. This small part of Christ’s bride began in 1834, and since that time we have enjoyed the blessing of God’s providence. Fourteen pastors have served us over the years. Our current pastor is Robert Schmidtberger, who has been here for 11 years. We have five ruling elders. This summer Rev. Ralph Joseph retired from the Selma, Ala., RPC and moved to Slippery Rock, Pa. He ministers to the college students along with Robbie Schmidtberger.

We minister to the communities of Rose Point, New Castle, Portersville, Ellwood City, and Slippery Rock. Some members travel from an even greater distance. The Lord is blessing us with seeing people join the congregation, and in November we received three new members. Others have expressed interest and are in Bible studies to learn more about what we believe.

We enjoy fellowshiping and celebrating life with each other.
