In Glen Iris, Alabama, the Glen Iris Baptist Church has a ministry to people with special needs.  It is a Sunday school class with at least 30 people who attend.  A missions-minded church that was started in 1921 on a front porch with a small group of folks who felt they wanted a Baptist church in their neighborhood.  It has grown to a large church with a radio and TV ministry.

I heard about their special needs ministry from LaMar Lyon of Good Shepherd Ministries which is a missions outreach to Haiti.  Both Special Gathering of Indian River and Glen Iris prepare shoe box Christmas gifts for the children who attend the school in Haiti that is run by Good Shepherd Ministries.

The senior pastor is Chris Lamb who has served the church in several positions for almost three decades. If you are near the Birmingham, Alabama area, you will be blessed to attend this church and seek out their Ministry to our Special People Bible study class.
