Thank You: I just want to thank our church family and let you all know how much I appreciate your cards, calls and visits during my shoulder surgery and recovery. You are very much appreciated! Dave Schneider

Hospital Stay:  Our pastoral staff and Hospital Care Team would like to serve you better during hospital stays. If you would like to receive visitors please indicate First Church of the Nazarene when signing in at the hospital. You may also indicate an upcoming surgery or need on the Connection Card and drop it in the offering on any Sunday. Please be sure to indicate the time and location of your surgery or hospital admission. This will greatly aid our staff in making contact with those hospitalized.

Online Giving:  Check it out...it's simple and quick. Just scan the code to the right and you will have immediate access to giving. This code will be available each week in the worship folder for all who would like to use it.  Click here to give online.

Live Streaming:  There's nothing like gathering together for worship, but you don't have to miss out on Sunday mornings just because you cannot be physically present! You can find the watch live link on our website or visit  hutchfirstnaz.org/live  on Sunday mornings during both our 9:15 traditional and 10:45 contemporary Sunday services. While it can't replace being present in person, hopefully it can help you stay connected!

Amazon Smile: Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the church, and AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service. So whether you are shopping for holiday gift giving, home or work, always remember to start here.
