“Giving thanks”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 via mobile

I can't wait to spend an hour on thanksgiving morning at Glide, giving thanks for all my blessings. One of those blessings being a church that actually "walks it's talk". Celebrate life!

“A place with a heart.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Any one who has read the book the "Pursuit of Happiness" or seen the movie with Will Smith will remember Glide. This is a powerful story of a man who ends up homeless through a "perfect storm" of events in his life. He and his son and the hardships they faced are amazing and even more amazing is that this man became a successful business man and author.

Glide Memorial Church has an organization that helps the homeless and they have become famous for the work they do. So many people have been given shelter in times of need and helped to start a new life with the help of Glide. A wonderful experience to be part of.

“Worshiping with all God's People”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

If you are in San Francisco on Sunday this is a great experience to worship with a diverse congregation. Some churches will shake hands to greet others during the service, here they ask you to hug each other. The music is joyful, led by a terrific group of musicians and the Glide ensemble--about 30 singers who sway and clap and make you feel comfortable doing the same. We sat behind some French speakers--apparently a French contingent regularly worships at Glide. This is a church where you get an idea of how expansive God's love is. Imagine!

“THIS CHURCH IS ALIVE!”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

We were staying at a hotel next door, and just happened upon Cecil's 50 anniversary celebration being held in the street. Of course we had heard of Glide, but really didn't know much about their work; this is truely what church should be about. Don't miss one of their services when visiting San Francisco.
