Special Needs Ministry Update

Welcome to King of Kings Special Needs Ministry. We serve special needs children in our congregation and in the surrounding community through a ministry that focuses on the entire family.  You do NOT have to be a member of the church at attend any of the events and activities. Here is the vision of our ministry:

  • We strive to CONNECT special need children and their families with a loving and supportive Christ-Centered Community.
  • We seek to BUILD relations with Christ, the children and families while walking along side each other as we experience the joys and struggles of life.
  • We INVITE you to walk with us.

Calendar of Programs and Event: We welcome all families with special needs children in the community and we hope you will find a place at King of Kings that supports your family in some way.  We hope to meet you at one of the events.

  • Sunday Mornings:
    • Sunday School: September 18, 2016 – May 21, 2017: 9 am: We offer full inclusion in our typical Sunday School Program and a self-contained Special Needs class specifically designed to meet the physical, mental and spiritual needs of your child.
    • Childcare during the Worship Service (10 -11 am) – This is a wonderful way to get help us get to know your special needs child and for the rest of your family to worship together.

Up-Coming Events


  • Special Needs Support Group Dinner:  June 19th at 6:30 pm.

This will be a very special dinner for the adults. The Girl Scout Group that helps with our children is fixing a special dinner for the adults. So we will start at 6:30 pm for a pizza dinner for all the kids. Starting at 7 pm the kids will go off and play and the parents will have a dinner together thanks to the Girl Scouts.   If your family is able to attend please let me know so that we can have enough food for everyone by emailing Judi. Thanks.  Judi Cooper at jhangen@kofk.org or 703-378-7272, ext. 225.

And you get 3 hours to have a date night. If you are interested in helping on Saturday or want your child to attend please contact Judi Cooper at jhangen@kofk.org or 703-378-7272, ext. 225.
