SUMMER SUNDAY SEMINAR SERIES features TED Talks:  How can anyone say there is good news about poverty?  What does it mean to face debilitating injuries after one has been shot and wounded?  What would it be like to give away millions of dollars?  These and other questions will addressed in several programs being presented by the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ as part of its Summer Sunday Seminar Series.

Sundays, now through July 27, at 9:00 AM, the church will present  TED Talks examining these and other issues.  Video presentations by a range of speakers, including Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly, Melinda and Bill Gates and U-2 member and activist Bono, will be shown.  Discussion following each presentation will be led by the church's Senior Pastor, John Danner.

TED Talks are produced by TED, a nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading ideas and fostering conversation.  Begun in 1984, TED started as a conference bringing together technology, entertainment and design.  Subsequently it has expanded to feature people from a variety of disciplines and cultures. 

The program is free and open to the public.  For further information, and a schedule of the presentations, visit the church website at www.sanibelucc.org.  


Sanibel Christian Preschool to Add 2-Year Old Class in August 2014 Parents of two year old children now have another choice when enrolling their child in preschool. Sanibel Christian Preschool is starting a class for two year olds starting in August 2014.  This expands the Preschool’s Program to cover ages two through Pre-K.   As with their older schoolmates, the two year olds will experience small class to teacher ratios, all part of providing a warm, safe and welcoming environment for preschool children of all backgrounds.  Sanibel Christian Preschool’s program includes an emphasis on the fine arts, music program, and math and reading skills along with their goal to make sure each child experiences that they are loved by God.

As a ministry of the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, the school works on the basic assumption that each student is a beloved child of God.  The school offers a developmentally appropriate program which nurtures the spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual and artistic needs of each student.  The school is located on the church’s campus at 2050 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.  For more information, please call 472-0497 or see our Facebook page.
