Next Steps

At Royston First United Methodist Church, we believe that everyone is on a faith journey and every journey has a next step. Your next step could be your first step in acknowledging a relationship with God and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Or your next step could be finding a small group, discovering more about personal spiritual disciplines, financial giving to the church, or volunteering to serve in a ministry area. No matter where you are in your faith journey, there is a next step for you and we want to help you discover that next step.

We have identified seven possible next steps for you and included information to help you with that step at Royston First UMC. This list is not a complete list, and you may find that your next step is one that is not on this list. We would love to help you discover what your next step is and explore the ways we can partner with you as you take that step. Please feel free to contact our pastor, Matt Parker, if you would like help with your next step.


  • Put your faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior
  • Baptism
  • Worship with us on Sunday morning at 8:45 or 11:00 AM.
  • Get connected in a small group.
  • Volunteer to serve.
  • Share your faith with others.
  • Become a member of Royston First UMC.

If you are interested in discovering more about any of these next steps or if you would like to talk with someone about your next step, please contact Pastor Matt Parker in the church office at 706-245-7402. We look forward to partnering with you on your faith journey.
