We believe that God designed the family as the primary place for discipleship. The Faith Path initiative exists to partner with you as you guide your child’s faith journey one step at a time and suggests a focus of specific practices and milestones at certain ages. However, you know your child best and can determine the most appropriate time to emphasize each step. Take advantage of the following links to begin the process in your family.
