When you cannot make it to our church service in person, we are live streaming our service via both Facebook and YouTube, and on any podcast service you prefer to use. Just remember to look for the picture of Ada First UM Church to confirm you found our worship service.
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 a few minutes before 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.) You will also find an archive of previous worship services on the Facebook page, if you want to watch it later in the week.
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. If your television can connect to the internet, you can also connect to the service via YouTube there. This YouTubechannel also has an archive of previous worship services. Remember to click on "Live" to see the past worship services that were at one time recorded as a live broadcast (almost all our services are in the "Live" folder). And click on "Videos" for the few services that were recorded for distribution (and thus never were a live service).
Podcast: Want to listen to the service via an audio podcast? You can find the Ada First United Methodist Church Sunday Services wherever you get your podcasts, including Spotify, Amazon Podcast, Apple Podcast, or Google Podcast.
The church has its own Android or Apple app via a product called MinistryOne. Simply go to your favorite app store and download the MinistryOne app. It has a logo of a purple square with a white cross in the center. Once you open the app, navigate to Ada First UMC (some find it easiest to search by zipcode, 45810). Once you find us, click and from then on, you'll be in touch with Ada First! The app provides quick access to past worship service videos, a method to send in a prayer request or question, a secure platform for you to electronically give to the General fund, and push notifications about upcoming announcements.
