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.

The Wesley Covenant Renewal Service is an excellent way to start a new year! This service was first performed in the mid-1700’s when John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, visited with churches. At the heart of the service is the Covenant Prayer that can be prayed each day as a reminder and daily renewal of our covenant with God.

On January 3, 2021, we will begin a new year by participating in the Wesley Covenant Renewal Service online. As you begin your new year, we want to invite you to download the Covenant Prayer graphic to use in your daily prayer time. You can also download a Daily Bible Reading Plan (January-March) to help you stay focused and disciplined in 2021.

We are a church striving to be ONE with…

During these uncertain and concerning times, Royston First United Methodist Church is praying for you. The concern over the Coronavirus has caused unprecedented challenges to churches all over the country. The most important consideration is, of course, the health and well-being of our families, staff, and members. We understand that this time can cause fear and anxiety, but we are called to bring hope through Jesus Christ for the days, weeks, and perhaps, months to come.

In response, we are developing some practical tips, prayer practices, devotionals, and ways to stay connected. Our vision is still 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.

One with Christ

We are ONE church with three excellent worship services. While the style and location 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 – both online and onsite.

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 in our community and around the world.

Everything is changing. Our communities has changed. Our country has changed. The world has changed. How are we adapting to this new world we find ourselves in now? Check out some of the changes we have made to our ministries and worship offerings.

No matter how much things around us may change, our mission remains the same. We are making disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus!

Praying FOR You and Praying WITH You

We want to be a church that prays FOR you and a church that prays WITH you. We invite you to join us so we can pray WITH you.

Have a prayer concern or celebration you would like to share with us? Share it with us so that we can pray FOR you.

New Message Series Beginning January 17

One of the biggest struggles many of us face in life is our relationships with others. Whether dating, engaged, married, or divorced, relationships can be challenging and at times it may even seem like men and women are from different planets. Why did God create men and women differently? Why are relationships so difficult? Why do so many marriages end in divorce? And why won’t he put the toilet seat down?

Beginning January 17, we will be looking into these questions and more as we begin a new message series, For Better or Worse. In this series, we will discuss the meaning and mission of marriage and how we can experience healthy relationships that honor God.
