Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Ada, Ohio!

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

Please come to this area of the church webpage on Saturday, Oct. 24 if you wish to participate in the live-stream of Don Fleming's memorial service.   We will be live-streaming Don Fleming’s memorial service this Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.  The in-person funeral service will be for family only as Don and Connie have a very large family. However, all are invited to tune in to the live stream.

Worship in-person or via Facebook Live

The church has re-opened to Sunday worship! At this time, we are following worship guidelines adopted by the Administrative Council that definitely make the in-person worship experience feel different, but we have to do this to protect our community's health. You can choose to attend worship at 10 am in the sanctuary or you can attend via Facebook Live. See the Worship Page for each week's Order of Worship and for information about listening to or watching the service via the internet.

Small Groups Meeting via Zoom

The church is running some new opportunities for study and fellowship. There are four small groups meeting via Zoom, and you are encouraged to find one that works with your schedule.  If you need to miss a meeting or two, don't worry, as these are all set up so you can flex as needed.  Contact the church office for the email addresses of the leader and that leader will then invite you to the Zoom meetings.  ( info@adaumc.org )

October/November:  Book Study - The Greatest Lie in the History of Christianity by Father Kelly.  The author exposes the lies we as Christians have been told by society.  Personal holiness is possible.  We can all have a closer relationship with God.  And as we grow close to God, not only CAN we change the world, it is the only thing that WILL.  Join us and see how YOU can change the world.  Thursdays Oct. 15, 22, 29 (well, maybe not since that's trick or treat), Nov. 5, 12, 19 from 7:30 - 8:15 p.m.   Led by Dave Lusk.

November Women's Study:  Book Study - Messy People by Jennifer Coward - Lessons from Imperfect Biblical Heroes.  Led by Wendy Daugherty on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm starting Nov. 18.
