Peace, Science, Faith
By Eugenia Moskowitz
The First Presbyterian Church of Washingtonville concluded its week long Vacation Bible School camp on July 20 with a performance for families and friends inside the church, where the approximately 30 children and counselors of Peace Lab 2018 sang songs for their audience under the direction of music teacher Nancy Popolovich.
Campers were separated into four age groups with the names Physicists, Chemists, Macro-Biologists, and Marine Biologists. The altar was transformed into an indoor laboratory where children experimented with science ideas and faith, pushing the boundaries of understanding even as they learned about the world around them. Outdoors on the lawn, multi-faceted learning games helped the children approach the wide world around them, and made for summertime smiles…especially with water fun in the hot summer sun.
