Welcome to
Kids Ministry

We love helping children develop a genuine love for Jesus, find meaningful friendships, and discover their purpose.

In Menlo Kids, we meet your child at their level in exciting, relevant ways. Our team helps your child discover Jesus through age-appropriate, hands-on Bible lessons. We partner with parents, working together so kids learn in a physically, spiritually, and emotionally safe context.

Nursery and Toddlers

At this age, we know your child is all about exploring. They’re constantly moving, touching, and investigating as they learn about the world around them. Our group leaders nurture this curiosity in each child, meeting their needs, praying over them, and getting all the snuggles in.

During this stage, it’s important for kids to lean into their creativity as they begin to discover how God created them and the world they live in. In the preschool classrooms, our group leaders help cultivate this natural wonder through worship, video-based Bible stories, and hands-on activities.

In this age group, kids are focused on harnessing their influence. Our group leaders help develop a passion for loving others and making a difference in the elementary environment. We engage kids through worship, video-based Bible stories, and hands-on critical thinking activities.
“At Menlo, our family has found community that not only enriches our lives, but supports and encourages our pursuit of Jesus.”

You’ll be greeted by a warm face

Check-in for the kids environments opens 15 minutes before gathering begins. To check in your child, we’ll need the parents’ name(s), address, and phone number plus the child’s name, birthdate, and any special instructions such as allergies or special needs. We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone. Our dedicated check-in team is available to help you through the process and help them find their environment.


Your kids will be safe and sound

All kids small group leaders have been trained to ensure your child remains safe. We also have a dedicated safety team ensuring that only parents and vetted team members enter the kids’ environments. Every team member is background checked. We follow up on their personal references and also crosscheck the sex offender registry and global watchlist.


They’ll get a chance to meet new friends

In Menlo kids, our community fosters a deep sense of belonging and spiritual growth for the next generation. With engaging activities kids are introduced to a God who loves them, and they develop friendship with leaders and peers.
