Celebrate Cecil Williams’ 90th Birthday!

GLIDE invites you to a Community Celebration on the occasion of Rev. Cecil Williams’ 90th Birthday!

Sunday, September 22, 2019

Join us for Sunday Celebration at 9:00 and 11:00 am at GLIDE Church followed by a community party at 12:30 until 3:00 pm at Boeddeker Park.

No one embodies the philosophy of love-in-action more than Reverend Cecil Williams, GLIDE’s legendary co-founder and Minister of Liberation for over 50 years.

Join us for the 11:00 am Sunday Celebration at GLIDE Church (enter Taylor Street at Ellis), followed by a community party in Boeddeker Park (246 Eddy St.), which will include music, cake, games, and a giant birthday card for you to sign and share your birthday wishes for Cecil! The Reverend has made it clear: It’s not a birthday party without the community there!

The celebration at GLIDE Church will include open-mic birthday wishes, a rendition of “Happy Birthday” sung by the congregation and visitors, a historic video and photo tribute, and some surprises! A procession led by members of the GLIDE Ensemble will leave GLIDE at 12:30 pm, and head to nearby Boeddeker Park. Both events are free and open to the public.

We look forward to seeing you and being with you on this very special day!
