Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I have the wonderful joy of serving as Lead Pastor to this amazing church. Please take your time to look at the various ministry areas. We are a church that believes in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and God’s love for the world.

I invite you to explore the website and learn more about the ministries, staff, and mission opportunities for all ages and stages in life. If you have any questions, you may contact us at as well.

Royston First UMC is a church that works intentionally to show love, grace and hospitality. People from every place in life are welcome here. Our goal is to invite people into a loving relationship with Jesus Christ, to grow in faith and service to God, and to make a difference in the lives of others. As a United Methodist Church, we belong to a denomination that is global. We celebrate our connection as we carry out the mission of making disciples for the transformation of the world.
