Royal Oak First United Methodist Church is a welcoming, modern congregation. Our church home is located downtown Royal Oak in a historic building. The church has been in Royal Oak for over 178 years. To serve our congregation, we celebrate unique services appealing to different styles of worship.

Join us as we worship together, study and grow together and share God’s love serving in the local, national and global community.

Worship with Us

  • Saturday Worship: Saturdays @ 4:00 PM

    Joyous! Informal and relational. Think of worship around a campfire: fellowship-oriented with a hymn sing and a message.

  • 9:00 Arise Worship: Sundays 9:00 AM

    A casual and up-beat time of worship with acoustic guitars, piano, drums, a message and some surprises. Nursery Care & Adult Sunday School (during school year)

  • Traditional Worship: Sundays @ 11:00 AM

    The rich music of organ and choir fills the sanctuary; preaching and a liturgy that works for every age with United Methodist-style formality. Nursery Care & Sunday School (Children & Youth)

  • As We Gather Worship: Thursdays 11:00 AM

    Thursdays at 11am – in the Fellowship Hall
    Hope/Faith/Testimony/Music Worship.

Hurricane Harvey Relief

Many of us have watched, feeling helpless, as our brothers and sisters in Texas and Louisiana have been pummeled by historic and catastrophic storms and flooding. Michigan United Methodists have asked, “What can we do right now to help?” Here are two ways you can help.

Keep in prayer those who have lost loved ones, homes and property, and for the first responders who are risking their own lives to get others to safety.

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is sending buckets filled with cleaning supplies and other relief kits into the affected areas. UMCOR is often one of the first to respond in times of disaster. At Royal Oak First we are collecting money to send to UMCOR to support their efforts in helping the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Our donation to UMCOR guarantees that 100% of your gift goes directly to disaster relief.

You can make your contributions to Royal Oak First United Methodist Church and indicate that it is for Hurricane Harvey Relief on your check or envelope. You may also make an online donation by clicking the button below and and then check on the UMCOR box under the Missions Category.
