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)
