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

What’s in a name? When we are born, we are given a name. For some, that name may be speak about their family history. Maybe it is a name that has been passed down from generation to generation. For others, the name has significant meaning because of how it defines the person. Your name speaks to who you are and how others will know you. So what name was given to God. In this series, we discuss the names of Jesus given through the prophet Isaiah. What do these names tell us about Jesus? How do these names have significant meaning in our understanding of God in this world. How will these names help us to know Jesus, the Son of God who we celebrate this Christmas?
