The Children’s Ministry
The Jesse Lee Children’s Ministry partners with parents to encourage children to get to know Christ. Through age-specific lessons, activities, and small groups, children ages birth-5th grade learn about Christ, the Bible, and real life lessons they can apply to their lives. The primary goal of all we do in Children’s Ministry is to lay a strong foundation of faith for the kids of Jesse Lee Church.

Shine Kids Sunday School –
In Person and Online!
The Shine Kid’s Ministry offers children ages PK3 through Third Grade lessons from the Bible that are perfect for their age groups. We teach the same lesson in-person and online for Sunday School for the Shine and Glow Kids so families can select whatever learning environment is best for them.
Glow Preteen Ministry
The Glow Pre-Teen Ministry has been specially crafted for 4th and 5th graders. This supplemental program is a lot like JAM, but the content is geared towards pre-teens and is offered on Mondays by Zoom from 4:15-5:00PM. We play games and learn how lessons from the Bible are relevant in the daily lives of these pre-teen kids. Please email Carrie King at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
Glow also offers special seasonal activities for 4th and 5th graders. News about these events will be posted here and announced in the “What’s Up This Week” email blast and the monthly Spire church magazine.
Virtual Sunday School
Each week videos will be available for children to navigate through a Bible lesson, a craft, a music lesson, and more! Parents are welcome to sit beside their children but are not expected to act as the teacher. Craft kits are available for pick-up the last week of the month, and often include a few extra goodies! Families can connect to the Shine Virtual Sunday School lessons here: bit.ly/shinesundayschool.
In-Person Sunday School
In-Person Sunday School looks, in many ways, as it always has. Available for Shine and Glow Kids (PK3 through 5th grade), we are currently meeting all together. We make it fun and interactive with games, movement in our bubbles, music, crafts, and everything kids expect from Sunday School. Our COVID guidelines state all children and adults must wear a mask and will be asked to remain in their “bubble” (the area around their chair) for the duration of Sunday School.
JAM (Jesus and Me) for Kids
This online program meets on Zoom Wednesdays from 4:15-5pm. Mrs. Ahle and her puppet friends will lead us in songs, games, and a lesson that continues what was learned in Sunday School – but don’t worry if you miss a Sunday, you will still be able to join us! Jam is intended for kids in PK3 through 3rd grade. Please contact the Director of Children’s Ministry, Carrie King at email@example.com for the Zoom link.
Choir for Children
The Junior Choir has been meeting by Zoom every Sunday at 10AM since the pandemic started. This dynamic group of K – 5th graders who enjoy praising God through music. The music is often in two parts which provides an opportunity to experience harmony. The children are encouraged to share any talents they have with instruments. They sing (virtually) together approximately once a month. Contact Deb Ahle.
