Serving is joining the heart of Jesus who said he came "not to be served, but to serve."

In serving we build friendships and get to use our unique gifts and talents. There's a spot for you and we want to help you find it.

Lead a group

Following Jesus is the path to life and we believe this happens best in community. The bonus to leadership: We grow in our own relationship with Jesus when we lead. We prepare differently, we show up differently, and we pray as we've never prayed before.

Facilities + Maintenance

With 135,000 square feet of buildings and acres of land to steward, we always have preventive maintenance and repair projects which could benefit from your skill and passion.

Setup and teardown

Our Set Up + Tear Down teams serve behind-the-scenes to create a welcoming environment for our community before they even enter the worship service. This includes setting up chairs, tables, signage, check-in stations, etc.

Memorial + Hospitality

If you have the gifts of hospitality and serving and a heart for helping grieving families, this is the team for you. The team is responsible for receptions following memorial services for Menlo Church members and friends, and for people outside the church.

One-to-one support

Do you have a heart for those who are hurting? Are you a good listener? Do you have time in your life to meet regularly with someone and walk with them through a difficult time? Stephen Ministry is a church wide caring ministry that provides training to people in our congregation so they can provide distinctively Christian, one-to-one care to those who are experiencing all kinds of life needs.

Disability + inclusion

Are you passionate about making church accessible to everyone? We would love for you to join the Disability & Inclusion Team which supports individuals of all ages affected by disabilities.


Do you want to be a blessing to someone hurting or anxious as you help them invite God into their situation? Provide one-to-one prayer after each worship service, either onsite or online. Be a part of our email prayer ministry and receive emails to pray over at your convenience.
