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.


Summer at Royston

You are invited to spend the summer with us at Royston as we gather TOGETHER for one worship service during the month of July! We will gather together beginning at 10:15 AM in the Sanctuary at Royston First UMC for a time of worship followed by some Lemonade on the Lawn to fellowship with one another.


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 opportunities to gather for worship. 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.


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.
