Menlo Students

We want to see all Middle School and High School students thriving in an authentic relationship with God, and connected to the local church.

As students take continual next steps, they will grow closer to God, have great relationships, and learn how to serve and lead in the church. We believe that students who are connected to a life-giving church and healthy relationships can follow Jesus for a lifetime, and they will use their gifts and passions to make an impact on earth.

6th-8th grade

Middle School

Our middle school ministry desires for students to be transformed by God. Our prayer is that His words would change their heart and compel them to live to make Him known wherever they go!
9th-12th grade

High School

The next generation of leaders is here. We’re raising them up to love God and love people. We believe God has called the youth of The Bay Area to know Him and serve Him! Menlo Students is dedicated to creating a space for high school students to read the Bible, have community, and know their purpose.
“My involvement in Menlo Church has taught me the importance of belonging to a community that supports me and others in every way. It’s allowed me to walk forward with confidence in everything I do.”



Find your people

We believe the best place for connection and growth is in a Life Group. A Life Group is a small group of students who meet together weekly with one or two adult leaders. We match girls with girls and guys with guys by grade level.
