Easter is already here for Ada's displaced United Methodist congregation

By Amy Eddings

Ash Wednesday has the potential of being an emotionally awkward moment for the fire-displaced members of Ada’s First United Methodist Church. The service, which launches the solemn, 40-day Christian season of Lent, will be the first in the new building on the grounds of the former church at North Main Street and Highland Avenue.
