Who We Are 

Quake is the youth ministry of Marysville First United Methodist Church.
We have weekly gatherings, along with events, and trips throughout the year. Our name is based off of these words in Haggi 2:6-7.

"This is what the Lord Almighty says:

'In a little while I will once again shake the heavens and the earth, the sea, and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and the desired of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,'  Says the Lord Almighty."

We yearn for students to be filled with the love of God and to make a difference for Christ in the world - through the power of God at work in them.

The MISSION of Quake: Quake exists to bring every teen in Marysville and Union County into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ: To inspire all youth to LOVE God with all their might, to LIVE as passionate, life-long disciples of Jesus Christ, and to LEAD others to Christ.

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:  6:00pm-10:00 pm  (You are welcome to pick your children up at any time during the night.  They do not have to stay until 10:00).

Cost:  $20 for one child; $5 for each additional child in the family.

Dates:  Oct 20, Dec 1, Jan 19, Feb 9, March 2, April 13, May 11

Where does the money go?:  All money raised is put into a Youth Missions fund to pay for trips or events that our 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 6-8:00 playing with the kitchen toys, coloring, puzzles, maybe doing a craft, and having snack.  At 8:00, they come down to the gym and pretty much just run around and scream or play group games.   At 8:00, they join the school age group in the cafe for a snack and to watch a movie until parent pick up time at 10:00.  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 6-8:00.  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 8:00, they go into the café for a snack and then at 8:30 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 form by printing the attachment below and return it into the church office.  Please contact Kendra Ingle at 937-707-8022 or email her at with any questions.

In order to have the appropriate number of volunteers to watch the kids, and because space is limited, you MUST sign up 48 hours BEFORE the night of the event.
