St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church will hold a free Sunday Bible School for children in kindergarten through fifth grade beginning on Sept. 16.

It will run concurrent with the Sunday service held at 9:30 a.m. in September and October, then at 10:30 a.m. beginning on Nov. 4. The school continues each week through the end of May.

It is 45 minutes long, after which the children participate in Holy Communion in the Sanctuary.

Children enjoy snacks as they learn and play in their new Sunday School classroom at St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church on Sanibel.

The new Sunday School rooms, a gift from a generous donor, are bright, joyful and inspiring. From cozy rugs decorated with the colorful words like "love," "Jesus" and "kindness," to cubbies with each child's name and a comfy rocking chair, "our intent is to create a personalized and loving atmosphere to deepen learning about the Christian faith," Rector Ellen Sloan said.

Lessons are experientially based, with hands-on activities, music and items to take home for family involvement throughout the week. Program teachers are Donnalee Washburn and Wendy Warner.

A veteran educator of young children, Washburn holds a bachelor's and master's degree. She taught elementary-aged children at the Canterbury School for 23 years. With nearly 30 years of experience teaching Bible classes, she has taught in the Sunday School program at St. Michael's since 2011.
