We believe all people deserve to know God’s love. Our special needs ministry exists to nurture and support students with physical and intellectual disabilities by encouraging them in the gospel, teaching them to worship God, and loving them unconditionally. We do this all while also supporting and encouraging their families through participation in the church body. If your child has a special need, please reach out to Lauren Pagett (lauren@waterfrontchurchdc.com) and let us know how we can best welcome you.
