Construction Well Under Way

Construction well under way

Ada First United Methodist Church lost its 100 plus-year-old building to a fire in March 2012. A new building is currently being raised on the old site, and members expect to occupy it in time to celebrate Easter in the new building.

Ada First would like to thank the ONU alumni and friends for their prayers and financial support expressed thus far. We continue to receive inquires from the community regarding how individuals could help rebuild the new church. There is now a list of specific gift giving opportunities listed on the church’s website. The list covers a variety of items needed in the new church, and it spans a wide range of monetary amounts. All gifts are tax deductible (a receipt will be sent by the church) and will be acknowledged and recorded in our Legacy Book.

If you have any questions related to the gift giving opportunities, please feel free to contact Kathy Maris at 419-634-0310 or We hope you stop by for a tour or join us in worship the next time you are back to campus.
