Common Questions

What is membership?

Members are those who commit to making Menlo their faith community for learning, worship, service, and generosity. Membership is when church goes from being “them” to being “us.” As a member of Menlo Church, we ask you to commit to: being a disciple of Jesus, attending weekend services, joining a life group, serving faithfully and giving generously.

How do I become a member?

To make Menlo Church your home church through membership, simply participate in Starting Point sessions, and read through the Membership Guide which includes details about what we believe, membership requirements & benefits, and some frequently asked questions about our church.
