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.

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 every other Sunday from 4-5PM. We meet outdoors (outside the Carriage House) for fun games and in person fellowship. We learn how lessons from the Bible are relevant in the daily lives of pre-teen kids.

Everyone is expected to wear a mask.

This is a great opportunity to invite your friends to join us! Contact Jenni Mason for more information.

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.

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.
