Making a promise to raise our kids in a home where they can grow in a deep relationship with God is a huge way of showing them how much we love them and want only the best for their life. Not only is this a huge honor, but it is also a calling from God. (Deuteronomy 6:6-7, Proverbs 22:6) Child Dedication and Infant Baptism is a marking-the-moment celebration where parents publicly commit to raising their children to know and follow Jesus. Infant baptism is reserved for children two-years-old and under and is available to the infants of parents who are active attendees of Menlo Church. Parents wanting to reserve baptism for the time of their child’s personal profession of faith in Christ may present their children for dedication.
Kindergarten Blessing marks the beginning of a thirteen-year journey that shapes a child like no other time in their life. At the Kindergarten Blessing, we celebrate kindergarteners and welcome them and their families into the next stage of Menlo Kids, connecting them with other families who will be on the journey with them.
Faith Foundations is a 4-week experience where 4th and 5th graders circle up to discuss important topics such as how to grow in faith, baptism, communion, and how to use their unique gifts to serve God.
