Local church to host 'Parents Night Out'

If you're looking to spend a quiet night without the kids, Cornerstone Church in Kirksville has the answer.

The church will be hosting a 'Parents Night Out' beginning at 6:00 Friday night. Kids of any age may be dropped off at the church to spend an evening playing games, eating popcorn, and watching movies.

Church members are letting parents go out on a date, or just spend a relaxing evening at home. 'Parents Night Out' is free, but donations will be accepted at drop off. The donations will go toward a mission trip to Costa Rica that one of the church members, Laura Blake plans to attend. She is hoping to raise $17,000 more.

"Our ministry is through a drama presentation, but also work projects, and I help on the medical staff when we go on the trips as well," said Blake.

'Parents Night Out' will begin at 6 p.m. and will run until 10 p.m. at the Cornerstone Church. Cornerstone Church is located on Elizabeth Street in Kirksville.
