ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany church is helping couples enjoy a Valentine's Day weekend date night.

Parents often have a hard time finding reliable and affordable child care, so the Agape Christian Worship Center is stepping in.

They sponsored a parents' night out tonight and will do so again Saturday.

For 20 bucks per child, they're offering a safe haven for kids allowing parents to enjoy a night out.

"We just appreciate the community," said Pastor Isha Odom. "Appreciate the support. Agape is a family-friendly community church so these are the types of events that we normally will do."

Around 25 kids showed up to play games, watch movies and even toss the football around.

The church on Martin Luther King Junior Drive will offer the same services Saturday starting at 5:30.  Click here to register.
