Growing
You are here for a reason!
 
The Bible equates the Christian and their walk with that of a new born baby growing up to being a child and then a parent. Maturation is an expected aspect of the Christian’s life. Our aim is to grow in our knowledge of our creator, and to grow in wisdom and maturity. Are you excited 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
