Which fund should I go with?

I've been employed at my job for 6 months now at a national retail chain, and they are giving me the option to opt in a 401k now. I have a choice to do a roth 401k, and not sure which fund to invest in. The options given are: BlackRock LifePath 2050 retirement fund, JPMorgan Stable Value Fund, BlackRock U.S. Debt Index Fund, BlackRock Balanced Fund, Dodge and Cox Stock Fund, Rainier Large Cap Growth Fund, CRM mid cap value fund, and Times Square Mid Cap Strategy Fund. I'm new at this so do you have any recommendations or have heard any good news about any of these funds? Thanks
