Connecting
You are here for a reason!
 
You’ve come to a place in your walk with God that you believe that He exists and that He sent His Son Jesus into the world to provide a way for us to get right with God and work together to bring peace and healing to the world around us.
 
In one encounter Jesus was asked what the greatest command was. He answered that the greatest was to, Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” … and the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.
 
Connecting with Christ and His church is the foundation new Christians need to be able to grow.
 
We’d like to walk with you. If you are not already connected with the Utica church of Christ, CONTACT US and let us know. We’d love to help you
