Please join West Angeles  in honoring the birthday of 1st Lady Mae L. Blake! Lady Mae can be described as a phenomenal Woman of God.  She is the wife of Charles E. Blake Sr., the Presiding Bishop of the Church of God in Christ, Inc. and founder of the Women Affairs Organization.


First Lady Mae L. Blake is featured in the Summer 2016 issue of The Whole Truth Magazine.

The Organization under her direction sponsors and coordinates numerous dynamic activities for the women of the church.  Many of these activities contribute to the beautification of West Angeles and the heart of the total woman.

  • “A Day in May with Lady Mae,” a luncheon in which the First Lady gives her annual encouraging message to the Body of Christ, and
  • “Women’s Day,” a full day of highly-anticipated, inspiring sermons by COGIC’s Missionary Evangelists, and featuring the Women’s Day Choir.  

Lady Mae is also the author of A Class Act, and A Class Act II, where she presents a message for women which is sprinkled with living examples and pearls of wisdom in a simple, yet, humorous and entertaining format. Lady Mae’s wit and wisdom keeps her readers fully engaged, holding on for her very last word, and leaving them wanting more.

Lady Mae, Bishop’s “Secret Weapon,” as he so lovingly calls her, is a gracious example of God’s gift in the earth and to West Angeles! She and Bishop Charles E. Blake share three children and eight grandchildren.

The West Angeles family offers a resounding “Happy Birthday” to First Lady Mae L. Blake on this 25th day of July!
