Our church building is a busy hub for the congregation and community. Weekday mornings you'll find the Ready, Set, Grow preschool 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 twice a month and are invited to join the chancel choir. For those in the community, we offer meeting spaces for groups like Teens for Christ, 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.
