Faith Path

 

 

First Baptist Georgetown believes that God designed the family as the primary place for discipleship. It is a partnership between the church and the home, utilizing the efforts of both parents and the church body to communicate the message of the love of Jesus Christ. The FAITH PATH initiative exists to partner with you as you guide your child’s faith journey one step at a time. Take advantage of the following links to begin the process in your family.
