When you cannot make it to our church service in person, or we have had to forego in-person worship due to the pandemic, we are live streaming our service via both Facebook and YouTube.
Facebook: Go to the church's Facebook page where we will broadcast the video of the live service https://www.facebook.com/adafirstumc (You do not need a Facebook account to see the video. Simply go to the church's Facebook page at 10:00 am and you should see a square box with an image of the chancel. The box should have a play arrow in the center and the word "LIVE" in red in the corner.)
YouTube: At the top of our home page at adaumc.org, you will find a link to the Live Stream Worship Service that will take you to the current Sunday's service stream on YouTube. This link will also work after the live service concludes, which is helpful if you are unable to connect to the internet on Sunday morning and want to watch the service later in the week. You can also use your computer, tablet, or television to connect to the church's YouTube channel and watch the service there. This YouTube channel also has an archive of previous worship services.
