We are ready to move forward with volunteer applications and screenings for parents who wish to volunteer at Kirk House. We appreciate and value all of our parent volunteers, and we simply couldn’t run our program as well without you! But, we do want to be sure that we are staying current with “best practices” for churches and schools and our use of volunteers. We take the safety of your children seriously.

Parents who wish to volunteer will need to fill out an Application. Please also fill out the Immunization Requirements document.

Some important information:

If you have already filled out a volunteer application for the Menlo Kids ministry at Menlo Church, you do not need to do it again. Simply notify us that you have already done so. We will double check and then enter it into our records.

It should take you about 15 minutes to fill this out, if you have the required information at hand.

In order to fill out the application, you will need your Social Security number and the names and contact information of two references. References cannot be a family member.

You will need to provide your Social Security number as part of the application. Please know that this number will only go to the background check company. It is sent to them in a secure manner, and it will not be retained in any records. Church and Kirk House staff will not have access to the number.

Filling out this application does require opening a “Fellowship One” account. For those of you who are not Menlo Church members, Fellowship One is a common and well-regarded church data base management program. In order to participate in any event at Menlo Church which requires registration, including this application/screening, it is necessary to have an account. You do have the option of opting out of church contacts (emails, mailings, etc.) that might be generated by the church from your account.

If you encounter any difficulties with this process, please be sure to let us know. And, if you have any questions or concerns about this application/screening, please be sure to let us know.
