Hope Church is offering parents a chance to do some holiday shopping without the little ones by offering a babysitting service on Saturday, Dec. 14, from 2 to 5.

Kidz Christmas Camp is available to children from age 3 to fifth grade. The cost is $5 per child or a maximum of $20 per family. The church is on Wolfpit Road.

To sign up, visit hopechurchct.org or email Kim Karus at Karus4@optonline.net.

As an act of service to the surrounding community, the church will be collecting items for Hopeline Pregnancy Center. Donations of newborn clothes, diapers, wet wipes, diaper cream, and baby wash as well as items for mothers — soaps, shampoos, body spray lotion — are welcome.
