Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Ada, Ohio!


Ada First UMC is located at 301 N. Main St.  

Upcoming worship services canceled due to Covid-19 through at least Easter, April 12. 

Tune in for a radio or internet broadcast!

Bishop Palmer of the West Ohio Conference of the UMC has issued the directive that all congregations should not hold Sunday worship services or weekly events through Easter.  While it simply won't be the same to worship separate this Easter, it is necessary and we appreciate our Bishop and other leaders guiding us in these decisions. 

That being said, we will still worship...it will just look different! Next week, Pastor Brandi and Pastor Courtnie (from Sugar Grove UMC) will be planning and working on ways to bring Holy Week to you via technology.  We will likely be recording different worship mediums for us to use during Holy Week and leading up to Easter Sunday.    

For now, we will continue broadcasting our Sunday service.  You can still tune in to hear the message at 10 am on the radio broadcast on WONB 94.9 FM.  Additionally, you can download an app on your cell phone such as Tune-In and set the channel to WONB The Beat, 94.9 to listen.  If you prefer the internet, you can listen to the service on http://bteradio.com/wonb.html  If you are a Facebook member, Facebook Live will broadcast live the service on our facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/adafirstumc

All are invited to participate in our weeklyministries!

Our church building is a busy hub for the congregation and community. Weekdays you'll find the Ready, Set, Grow preschool and all day care for preschool through after school children in our education area. In the evenings, adults are meeting for activities that include crafts and quilting, yoga, zumba, small care groups, United Methodist women circle groups, chancel choir rehearsal, and monthly committee meetings. Youth typically meet weekly and are invited to join the chancel choir. For those in the community, we offer meeting spaces for groups like girl scouts and brownie troops and library events. We invite you to participate in these events, and you are encouraged to add our website calendar to your own Google calendar by simply clicking on the blue plus sign on the bottom edge of the calendar. Additional programming information is published in our electronic monthlly newsletter and our weekly email prayer list. If you would like to be added to our email list or need to update your information, please contact the church office.  Our website also provides information about the history of Ada First UMC, our staff, and our visioning and construction process after the fire in 2012.
