Baptism 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. Baptism, whether administered to those who profess their faith or to those presented for Baptism as children, is one and the same Sacrament. The baptism of infants witnesses to the truth of God’s gracious initiative, that God loves us even before we are able to respond in faith. The baptism of adults and children witnesses to the truth that God’s grace can make us new creations at any stage of our lives.
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. Our upcoming Kindergarten Blessing is September 20.
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.
