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

Welcome Visitors

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 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.
