Deanna Lee Co-Director of Children & Youth Ministries

One of my passions is playing the Piano. Since 1995 I have operated a private piano studio in La Crosse. I have taught students ages 4 – 90 years of age. I have served in many local and state music organizations.
Some 20 years ago I never completed my church confirmation class. After many years, God encouraged me to return to church and here I am at First Pres!
I want First Pres to continue to be a place where young children and youth are welcomed and valued. Since joining First Pres, I have had the pleasure of leading classes for every age. I’ve discovered that the youth and children’s classes have helped me grow the most in my faith journey. These classes are also the most fun for me! It’s not surprising because prior to coming here I spent 13 years as a Children’s Leader in Bible Study Fellowship.
My goal as Co-Director of this program is to help kids learn about God to help them cultivate a relationship with Him through prayer, service, and Biblical literacy.
Train children in the right way, and when old, they will not stray. – Proverbs 22:6 (NRSV)
