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!
