Calling stressed out parents! Enjoy a night out with your spouse or just an evening to yourself while we entertain your kids with music, crafts, Christian stories, snacks and more. Child-care is free of charge. Our volunteers have been background-checked and love kids.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
We believe that strong marriages lead to strong families, and marriages need to be cultivated. We recognize that parenting is difficult (even more so for single parents) and sometimes you just need a break. Babysitting can be expensive or hard to find, so let us treat you to a night out!
We can accommodate up to 40 kids aged 3 months to 5th grade. For more information and to register, go to pbcc.org by the Tuesday before the Friday date night. Registration may close earlier if we are full.
Peninsula Bible Church Cupertino is an interdenominal Christian church that was established in 1985. We are a sister church to Peninsula Bible Church Palo Alto, which was started by Ray Stedman and a group of Christian businessmen in the 40s. We strive to be a place where people can grow spiritually through truth and authentic relationships and have opportunities to love the world both locally and globally.
We are conveniently located in Cupertino, near the intersections of Highway 280 and 85, just minutes from Apple Campuses 1 and 2.
