Annual Tindley Day Memorial


July 20, 2019
Collingdale, Pennsylvania

Join in the celebration of Reverend Charles Albert Tindley's life (1851-1933) and legacy in The United Methodist Church. Rev. Tindley is considered one of the founding fathers of American Gospel music penning such classics as, "Stand by Me," "I'll Overcome Some Day," and "We'll Understand it By and By." His historical importance is recognized by the UMC by having his long-time church, Tindley Temple UMC, and his gravesite named a UM Historic Site (#434). The gathering will be held on Saturday, July 20th at 10:30 am at Historic Eden Cemetery on 1434 Springfield Rd, Collingdale, PA.
