San Mateo Kids Service Times
We offer kids ministry: Sundays at 8:30, 10 and 11:30am for ages 3 months to 5th grade // Sundays at 1pm no kids ministry available.
What will my child experience?
Our goal is to provide an environment where babies and toddlers feel comfortable and secure. Each room is led by caring volunteers who are focused on making sure children are cared for, loved, and accepted.
Beginning in the Toddlers class, we provide experiences that give children a first impression of our loving Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus.
Preschoolers are getting their very first look at who God is and what his love means to them, so our hands-on activities, games, and stories are geared toward helping them experience and connect with the life-changing truths of the Bible.
Elementary (K-5th grade)
We seek to give K – 5th grade kids a sense of community with invested life group leaders and a creative and engaging learning environment. God’s word comes alive in both large group and life group settings.
What to Expect
Menlo Kids is a fun, safe, age-appropriate worship experience for every child, from 3 months old to 5th grade. Kids learn in creative environments that match their curiosity. Through singing, interactive Bible stories, and hands-on activities, kids discover what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
First Time With Us?
On your first visit, head straight to our Menlo Kids registration area. (Ask anyone in a lanyard and they'll direct you right to us.) Our friendly weekend hosts will meet your family and get your kiddos registered for our kiosk check-in system. After that, we will lead you and your child to their room where we will introduce your child to one of our incredible leaders and also some new friends. We want to make sure that you don’t miss a thing, so we recommend arriving 15 minutes before the service begins.
How Does Check-in Work?
When checking-in your children at a kiosk, you will receive their name tag along with two claim tickets that you will use to pick them up. As part of the check-in process in the classroom, a leader will sign your kid in on their roster. We will ask for your cell phone number so that we can contact you in case you are needed during the service.
Frequently Asked Questions
What About Safety?
When can I check my kids in?
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.
