Are you finding it hard to plan a night out, or…. a night in with your kids out? If your answer is yes, then we have just the thing for you! The Methodist youth group, Quake, holds a Parents’ Night Out about once a month during the school year.
Here are the details:
Location: First United Methodist Church
Time: Saturdays from 4:00-8:00pm ****Note the day and time changes.
You are welcome to pick your children up at any time during the night.
Cost: $20 for one child and $5 for each additional child in the family.
Dates: Nov 3, Dec 8, Jan 12, Feb 9, March 9, April 13, May 11
Where does the money go?: All money raised is put into a Missions fund account and used to pay for any trips or events that the youth participate in.
The children are divided into the following groups:
1) Infant - 3 year olds ~ These kids are in the nursery all night. We have 1 adult with 1 or 2 youth, depending on how many kids we have signed up for the night.
2) Preschool ~ These kids are in one of the preschool rooms upstairs from 4-6:00 playing with the kitchen toys, coloring, puzzles, maybe doing a craft, and having a light meal. At 6:00 they come down to the gym and pretty much just run around and scream J or play group games. At 6
:00 they join the school age group in the cafe for a snack and to watch a movie until parent pick up time at 8:00. Depending on the size of the group, we will have 1 adult with 2-4 youth.
3) School Age ~ These kids are in the gym and cafe from 4-6:00. We have games and crafts for them to do in the cafe, and they do their own thing in the gym, which is what I like to call controlled chaos :) Most of the kids are running around for the whole 2 hours. At 6:00 they will go into the café for a light meal and then at 6:30 we start the movie. We have 1 or 2 adults with 4 or 5 youth, depending on how many families have signed up for the night.
If this sounds like something you would like to take advantage of, just complete the registration on the back of this page and turn it into the church office. Please contact Kendra Ingle at 937-707-8022 or email her at email@example.com with any questions.
In order to have the appropriate number of volunteers to watch the kids, and because space is limited, you MUST be signed up 48 hours BEFORE the night of the event.
