During this time of uncertainty surrounding the outbreak of the Novel COVID-19 virus (coronavirus), we invite you to worship with us virtually each Sunday beginning at 10:15 AM.


No matter where you are in your walk of life,
we are here to welcome you and help you with the next step.

Royston First United Methodist Church is located in Royston, GA, approximately 30 miles northeast of Athens. Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who make disciples of Jesus Christ. We seek to build authentic Christian community and lead people to a life changing relationship with Jesus through our weekly worship gatherings, small groups, compassionate service, and community outreach.


We are a church striving to be ONE with…

When you enter the doors at Royston First United Methodist Church, you will see a lot of imperfect people. We mess up and we make mistakes every day, and we recognize our imperfection. But as we grow in God’s grace, we are moving towards perfection in the image of God. Our vision is to be a church that is ONE with Christ, ONE with each other, and ONE in ministry to all the world through the power of the Holy Spirit. How do we do that?

One with Christ

We are ONE church with two excellent worship services. While the style of worship may change, we are ONE in our love for God through Jesus Christ!

One with Each Other

We believe that transformation happens best in community! We have different small group and support ministries for people in every stage of life.

One in Ministry

Every person has a story and every story is important to God, so it matters to us. We strive to “love our neighbor” through ministry to all people.


Current Message Series

The Bible has been given many descriptions throughout the course of history: God’s Word, Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth, and Life’s Instruction Manual just to name a few. What if we saw the Bible as less of an instruction manual and more of an exploration into the greatest story ever told? From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible tells of God’s great love for us and offers us an invitation to explore that love and grace through Jesus Christ. From January through December 2020, you are invited to explore the scriptures with us as we discover God’s story through scripture.
