God Loves You and There is Nothing You Can Do About It
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.

Join us as we worship, study, and grow together and share God’s love serving in the local, national, and global community.
Worship with Us
Saturday Worship: Saturdays at 4:00 pm
Joyous! Informal and relational. Think of worship around a campfire: fellowship-oriented with a hymn sing and a message.
9:00 Worship: Sundays at 9:00 am
A casual and up-beat time of worship with acoustic guitars, piano, drums, a message and some surprises. Nursery Care & Preschool Sunday School
Traditional Worship: Sundays at 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 at 11:00 am
Thursdays at 11:00 am in the Fellowship Hall Hope, faith, testimony, music, and worship.
July Collection Challenge
We will be collecting personal care and hygiene items throughout the month of July for our friends at the Redford Brightmoor Initiative, the NOAH Project, and our own lunch program. 100 boxes to fill will be available beginning Sunday, July 8. Be on the lookout for sales and coupons so you can fill your box and return it to the church by July 29.
