Ahoy Ada First! As you all know, our Vacation Bible School is coming August 6-8.  We'll meet in the church from 5:30 - 8 pm on Friday and Saturday, and at 10 am on Sunday. This year's theme is "ANCHORED".  

Registration for this year's ANCHORED VBS is live! Anyone ages 3 all the way to 5th grade is encouraged to join us to learn just how we can be anchored in God! Registration is easy.  Just visit this link and complete the form.

Would you like to be a volunteer to help with VBS?  There are tons of different areas to help in; from registration to teaching, and everything in between - there's a spot that's perfect for you!

Worship with us!

You are welcome to join us either digitally via our Live Stream or in person in our sanctuary each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. The Administrative Council meets monthly to consider our church Covid policies to consider new information as it becomes available from the CDC and Governor DeWine. Below is a summary of our updated policies.

 Sunday Morning Worship and Children’s Church:

  • Our guidelines will remain the same. Masks and distancing are required in the sanctuary, hallways, and restrooms on Sunday mornings.
  • Sunday school classes with individuals ages 12+ (of vaccination age) may unmask while in their designated meeting rooms.

The Ad Council unanimously voted to keep worship guidelines in place in order to care for those who are unable to be vaccinated. During Sunday morning worship, we have infants, children, and some vulnerable adults who are unable to be vaccinated at this time. Therefore, we consider it our responsibility to care for them in every way we can until the vaccine becomes readily available for all populations. In Matthew’s Gospel (Mat. 25:40), we are reminded that when we care for the least among us, it’s as though we are caring for Christ himself. In our current circumstances, the “least among us” are those most vulnerable to the virus and we take seriously our call from Christ to advocate and care for them. We want all to feel welcome and safe in our worship services and for a short while longer that means choosing safety over comfort.

Also, continuing to wear masks allows us to worship more freely. We can share in congregational responses and singing. We would not be able to do these things safely without wearing masks.

Limited scheduling of group activities inside the church during the week is permitted.  Contact the church office for more details.

An archive of our past worship services are available for your viewing at anytime on Facebook or YouTube.  You can even access our worship services on your smart phone via the church's app.  Visit our Worship webpage where you will find additional information and the current week's Order of Worship.
