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, 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)

What’s Happening

Arts, Beats, & Eats Worship Service

Labor Day weekend is here and that means that Arts, Beats, & Eats is back!

We will have one worship service this weekend, at 9:30 am on Sunday, at the Country/Americana stage at the corner of 6th St and Lafayette. All who attend this eclectic service are given free admittance to the festival!

If you want to attend the festival after worship, parking is available at Royal Oak High School and shuttle buses will bring you to and from the festival grounds. If you don’t feel like sticking around for the festival after worship, parking is available in the parking structure across the street from the stage. All cars have to be out of the parking structure by 11:00 am.

Enjoy the Moment

Dear Friends, This weekend is a little weird for our family. It is weird because it feels like we have a foot in two worlds. It is still summer. The memories are still pretty fresh of camps and swimming and ice cream on the back porch as the fireflies dance in dusk of...
