FROM: Pastor “J” Edgar Boyd
              Sr. Minister, FAME Church, Los Angeles

TO: Members and Supporters of FAME Church

Dear Friends:

In response to the most recent State, County and City-wide Covid-19 State of Emergency Executive Orders, please be aware that First AME Church of Los Angeles will abide by the provisions in those orders as they affect our operations. FAME Church, like all other houses of worship within the County of Los Angeles, is not included in the list of those organizations “Providing Essential Services,” and therefore will not remain open for public gathering. Those governmental restrictions and FAME’s compliance with them will remain in place until they are determined to no longer be needed and should be seen as necessary actions which are invoked to assist in slowing the spread of the COVID 19 Virus within our population.

Understanding the important role that divine worship plays in the life of Christian believers and their families, FAME Church will continue to provide a live weekly worship service using live streaming technology. We welcome you to join us and worship with us this and every Sunday, with three services, starting at 7:45 AM, 10:00 AM, and 12 Noon. Please click on the YouTube link below. 

Without our traditional in-person worship service, now, more than ever, we need your continued financial support so that we can meet the demands of our service to the Los Angeles Community. You can assist us greatly by contributing to our mission by clicking on the Donate Button on this page. 

We will follow our traditional A.M.E. order of worship as outlined below. We know these are challenging times and we hope that you will join us in finding comfort and strength in the Word of God. 

Pastor “J” Edgar Boyd,
Sr. Minister at FAME Church of Los Angeles
