How to Place Object on a Spline?

Hello All, I hoping for some guidance with a C4D question.

I have an object that I have built with sweep nurbs that I want to animate growing using the offsets. But I also want the whole grouped set comprising the object to take the shape of a B Spline path.

What would be the best way to have the object adapt to the shape of the path and yet still give me the ability to animate the sweep settings?

It's a DNA strand with two equally swirling spirals that grow. I want them to grow but follow a specific path rather than just grow straight up. BTW, I am only using Broadcast and do not have Studio.

Much appreciation and thanks in advance.
