Welcome to Royster Memorial Presbyterian Church!
Our Mission Statement: To love God and one another, to share the good news of Jesus Christ, and to serve others as empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Our Vision: To fully become God’s instruments of service, realized through spiritual growth in Christian worship, study, prayer, music, education, and fellowship. We recognize that we are called to outreach, not only to our members, but the community and world at large, as we express our sense of hope and joy through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Believing that the love and grace of God embraces everyone, we, the members of Royster Memorial Presbyterian Church, welcome into our fellowship all people, regardless of age; gender; ethnic, cultural, or racial identity; sexual orientation; economic, occupational or educational status; faith background; mental or physical abilities. We welcome those in the military who are permanent or transient in our community.
