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…

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.


From June 5 through July 31, we will have ONE worship service at 10:15 AM in the Sanctuary at Royston First UMC. We hope you will join us for our summer worship schedule this summer!


Food Truck Party: June 26-30

Hey kids! Are you ready to cook up some fun? This summer, we are having a Food Truck Party for Vacation Bible School and we want to invite all children ages 4 through 5th grade to get on a roll with God as a parade of food trucks roll into our neighborhood June 26-30 for the summer’s biggest party!
