Updated FAME Church Policy
As we pray for our world and the people of faith in our church community, please know that we want to practice safety and be in compliance with our state health guidelines. When we gather together for worship once we go inside our buildings the following must be observed to enter:
* Temperature check.
* Complete church form for contact tracing.
* Mask or proper face shield must be worn.
* Once inside, wash hands frequently when contacting surfaces and using the restroom facilities
* Adhere to social distancing practices by maintaining a 6 ft. separation of others.
* If worshippers fail or refuse to abide by these regulations, you will not be allowed into our worship services.
We desire to worship with consideration and care for others.
A Wellness Message from the Health and Wellness Ministry
The colds and flu season are here and will last into Spring.
It is time to take action to protect you, your family and our church community.
A flu immunization will reduce your risk of or cause a less severe illness from
this year's strains of the flu so we recommend it. It takes 2-3 weeks to build up your immunity. Help reduce the spread of colds and the flu: Stay home the first 3-4 days of an infection, cover coughs and sneezes, cough or sneeze in your sleeve or tissue. Wash your hands often with soap and water. Call your health care provider or consulting nurse for questions. Take action! Let's promote healthy families and our church community this season.

A Message from the Pastor.
September 2, 2020
Dear FAME Members and Friends:
Let me begin by saying “Thank You!” We are drawing near to the end of Summer 2020, and have successfully completed our 129th Session of the Pacific Northwest Annual Conference and have continued doing ministry by feeding over 3,000 families since May. We are working with various community based organizations and groups distributing face masks and shields for youth and adults and have made upgrades to our Seattle Campus in upgrading our wi-fi system. Our Scholarship Ministry held a successful outdoor recognition to all of our college recipients. Vacation Bible Camp was held in an outstanding virtual platform and was led by our Youth Exchange Ministry. They also held a virtual worship service at the Youth Detention Center in August.
We have much more exciting news to share about our ministry for the remainder of the calendar year, but I must pause to lift up church condolences to the families and friends who have lost loved ones during this time of dramatic change. We will be recognizing all of our loved ones who have passed in a special service of remembrance in 2021.
Lastly, I must personally thank each of you for your generous financial support. As members or as a FAME Friend, your gifts speak to where your heart is because people support the things that they love, hold dear and believe in. We have met all of our ministry financial needs because of your faithfulness to God and God’s House without holding any fundraisers since February.

Our Fall Planning Process is now underway. All ministries are to contact the church to schedule your holding of elections. A Steward or Clergy person is needed. Let’s stay committed to our faith and love for each other.
I Love you and Pray for you and your family.
