Faith Path

At Watermark, we believe that God designed the family as the primary place for discipleship and that parents have the privilege of nurturing faith and character in the next generation.  To partner with you in building a Christ-centered home, we are introducing Faith Path, a step-by-step plan to help you intentionally guide your child’s spiritual journey. 

Each phase of the Faith Path is aligned with your child’s age and prepares you for a corresponding milestone in your child’s faith formation. Our desire is to help you leverage the best strategy for their stage of development, focusing on specific practices at particular ages. Each step along the path includes strategies, ideas, and tools to help you take simple strides toward creating a God-honoring family.

You can begin today regardless of your child’s age or stage. Did you miss a step or want to start the process with an older child? Don’t worry! You can always go back and cover earlier steps. Rather than a one-time emphasis, think of these as ongoing conversations as they grow.
