our town

Our Town is an exciting place designed just for kids from Kindergarten to 5th grade.  Our goal is that when kids come here, they learn about God's awesome plan for their lives!  Whether they are at worship in Praise Park, at snacks in Solid Rock Cafe', or in one of the many stores (classrooms) down Blessings Boulevard, kids are sure to have a blast and they never want to leave!


Sunday Mornings     

Sunday mornings in Our Town is an hour each week that your child won’t forget!  Classes are offered at 9:30 & 11:00am for students K-5. This enables children to be a part of corporate worship with their families. Students start their hour in Praise Park where they experience Kid's Worship which includes high energy music and movement.  During this time, they also hear announcements about upcoming children's events. This is followed by interactive bible study with loving teachers in the local shops of Our Town.


OUR TOWN KIDZ

OTK is a fun, high-energy ministry for kids K-5th grades offered at Rosemont on Wednesday evenings from 6:15-8:00pm. It is designed to reach boys and girls for Jesus as it blends Bible teaching, scripture memorization, and tons of fun!   Classes are divided by grade level, where they rotate from Hear It, where they hear the weekly bible lesson, Learn It, where they focus on memorizing the scripture for the week, Play It, where they play games related to the weeks lesson. Kids have an awesome time learning about God in the middle of their busy week!



Safety & Procedures

The safety and security of your child is always top priority when they are here at Rosemont. All teachers have been screened through local and national background checks. There are always at least two teachers in each classroom. We take very seriously the trust you place in us when leaving your child in our care. Below are steps we take to ensure their safety:


CHECK-IN & PICK-UP PROCEDURE


First-Time Visitors (for children birth-5th grade):

On your first visit to Rosemont, you will be asked to complete a Visitor's Registration Form for your family. Your child will be given a security name badge and you will be given a security card. Both the name badge and your card will include a corresponding number. Your card will be used for security purposes for retrieving your child. Please be sure to include any medical/guardianship information needed in order for us to best care for your child.


Parents of preschoolers are asked to please leave cell phone numbers with someone at the check-in desk. If needed during the ministry session, we will be able to text or call you.  


Returning Visitors & Members (for children birth-5th grade):

Drop Off: After your initial visit, your child's information will be stored in our computer for future visits. You will now simply go to the check-in kiosk either in My Father's Garden or Our Town and follow the steps on the screen to print out name badges and security cards for your child(ren). You may print all of the the badges from one computer even if some are attending other ministry areas.


Pick-up: 

When coming to get your child, you will be asked to show your security badge for the teacher to match the number with your child's name badge. Our pick-up policy for children from birth-5th grade is that they must be picked up by individuals who are at least 16 years of age, and who have their matching security badge with them. This policy is just another step in maintaining your child's safety while on our campus. If your parent security badge becomes lost, please visit the check-in desk. Someone there will be able to assist you with retrieving your child.
