Sing Praises to the Lord
The music program at Jesse Lee is embracing creative ways to make music safely during the pandemic. Flexibility and creativity in the arts are important for keeping us both safe and spiritually nourished at this time so we have developed safe ways to make music both online and in-person. Please see a list of our ensembles below. We would love to have you join us. Contact the Director of Music Ministries, Sarah Fox, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
7-8:30PM on Thursdays in the Sanctuary.
Music is a vital part of our worship experience, and provides us
with a joyful way to worship the Lord. Our choir offers an
opportunity for you to share your vocal talents with our
community. Choir members prepare hymns and choral anthems
for Sunday morning in-person services, as well as online
services. Small singing ensembles also offer different socially-distanced ways to sing during COVID. Individual vocalists are also encouraged to sing solos or duets with other vocalists.
Please contact Sarah Fox at email@example.com to
share the ways in which you can raise your voice!

The junior choir is a 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 approximately once a month. Contact Deb Ahle.

Jesse Lee has a long history of integrating the beautiful sound of handbells in our worship celebrations. If you have never tried playing handbells, but are able to read music, consider joining us. All are welcome to join in. Instruction and practice are provided so that you can learn the technique and feel comfortable playing. We share the gift of the bells about once a month and during the holidays. Director: Jenni Mason.
