TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A sense of community have filled the walls of Tucson Baptist Church following a break in last Thursday night.

Dozens turned out for the Sunday evening service.

Not all is back to normal, though, a different audience missing out.

"We had numerous questions on Facebook - asking where's live stream?," explained Tucson Baptist Church Pastor Brent Armstrong.

One of the biggest losses for the church has been the thousands unable to tune in after thieves ran off with equipment necessary to put services online.

The burglary is only one thing  adding to the tough year thus far for the church.

Before the break in, Tucson Baptist Church lost two key members last month, Sandra and Isabelle Enriquez. Both tragically killed in Vail.

Armstrong said, "We're not going to allow this to dim our joy of serving the Lord."

'Unbreakable' is the fitting theme for the year selected by Pastor Armstrong. 

Church members like Jack Holder will tell you through each prayer, song, and service, support will continue to run strong.

"People just love each other," said Holder.

Armstrong told Tucson News Now, "When we go through a fire, it makes us harder and tougher and we're more usable. That's what's happened is that this is a trial. We've gone through it and we're better for it."

Despite it all, church members remain optimistic.

Holder said, "It's hard for this church losing this stuff, but the Lord will work it out. He always does."

As of last check, the suspect or suspects have not been caught from the burglary.

If you have any information that could help, you're asked to call 88-CRIME.
