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'sFacebook 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 inthe 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 YouTubechannel also has an archive of previous worship services.

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.
