A Day in Mae with Lady Mae




Mother’s Day weekend thousands of women joined First Lady Mae Blake for “A Day in May.”  There have been resounding accolades about the success of this event.  There was food, entertainment, fellowship amongst women and a highly anticipated address from First Lady Mae Blake.  Many women marveled over the advice, words of wisdom and encouragement that Lady Mae imparted so generously and eloquently.

Betty Smith, President of IAMSK, tells us, “As the President of IAMSK, being at this events means that it is a way to bridge the Young Adult Women to the Women Affairs Department and to let our first lady, Lady Mae know, that the young adult women love her and support her. And we admired her and she is everything we inspire to do with all of her elegance, grace and class.”

Many spoke of the event being the perfect Mother’s Day gift as they hoped to hear advice about motherhood and fellowship and celebrate with fellow mothers.  “I’m expecting to hear an enlightening word from Lady Mae in regards to mothers; She’s always energetic in her speaking and I usually work with her in the national work for guests that are coming in for Holy Convocation. And so I just wanted to be here and be amongst the saints.  So I felt it was going to be very uplifting because it’s close to Mother’s Day.”  Told to us by Mother Kathy Humphrey who was a first time attendee of the event.

The spirit of appreciation and thankfulness resonating from Mother’s Day reflected the hearts of women in the crowd towards Lady Mae and her amazing speech and event.  “A Day in May” simply reflects the immense love our first lady has for women, and she held nothing back and spared no expense to provide a fantastic Mother’s Day and time of fellowship for women everywhere.  All in all, A Day in May received the highest accolades and was undoubtedly a huge success.

Proverbs 31:25-28

New King James Version (NKJV)

25 Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:

From their nurturing touch,  biological senses, and understanding–the importance if Mother’s crosses every literature and culture known to man. Our literature is full of adages and proverbs from nearly every culture or country on Earth. A Jewish proverb claims, “God could not be everywhere so he made mothers.” An Arabic proverb expands on that point, “The mother is a school; if she is well-reared, you are sure to build a nation.”

And throughout the centuries, mothers have always stepped into those roles, defining them according to their children’s — and community’s.  Join West Angeles in honoring ALL Mother’s this Sunday, May 12, 2013 in the 8AM and 11AM services. Here is our Mother’s Day Bulletin.

World Missions Conference



Today there are more than 6,000 unreached people groups in the world. These are peoples among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize the people group. Our goal is two-fold:

  1. To deliver the gospel message using an appropriate medium that provides members from that people group historic access to the Good News.
  2. To invest in leadership training strategies that empowers indigenous leaders for the purpose of reaching their own people.

Join West Angeles for our Annual World Missions Conference! Join Pastor Ben Stephens, Bishop Francis Kamau, and Elder John Patton for a dynamic teaching on the importance of missions.

Palm Sunday


Palm Sunday

Join West Angeles this Sunday, March 24 as we celebrate Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Jesus’ death and his Resurrection! Matthew 21:1-11 recounts Jesus triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.

Matthew 21:1-11

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Triumphal Entry

21 Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.”

All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:

“Tell the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your King is coming to you,
Lowly, and sitting on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.’”

So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:

“Hosanna to the Son of David!
‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’
Hosanna in the highest!”

10 And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, “Who is this?”

11 So the multitudes said, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.”
