UPDATE regarding the COVID-19 virus procedures for FAME.
 
Greetings FAME Family,
 
I pray you are well and continuing to shelter at home safely.
Recently, there has been much conversation in the news media concerning the re-opening of cities as a
means of re-starting the economy. These conversations are running counter to the recommendations of
physicians, scientists and WHO (World Health Organization).
 
Currently, we do not have accurate information on how many people are asymptomatic but still able to
transmit the disease to others unknowingly. Limited availability of PPE (personal protective equipment)
and testing enhances the potential for catastrophic outcomes particularly in underserved and
communities of color who currently are contracting and dying from the virus at greater numbers than
other population groups.
 
I realize this is a difficult time for us all but know that your health and well-being are of utmost
importance to me. Therefore, FAME will continue to follow social distancing and stay-at-home
requirements as recommended by CDC and WHO. We will continue to worship virtually via Facebook
Live, Zoom, online at our website famechurchlasvegas.com and recorded sermons will be available on our
YouTube channel.
 
I am overwhelmed by the support and unity that you have all displayed towards FAME and me. Thank
you for your continued financial support which allows us to meet our obligations.
We WILL get through this together! God has given us a strong mind to help direct and guide us through
this moment in time. We don’t wait as those who have no hope but as those who’s hope is in the Lord!
 
Love and blessings, Pastor Karen

Reverend Dr. Karen Denise Anderson
The Reverend Dr. Karen Denise Anderson is first and foremost a follower and disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. She continues to be amazed and humbled that God called her to pastoral ministry. She has a deep love for God and God’s people. After serving three congregations in St. Louis, in 2019, Bishop Clement W. Fugh, assigned her to First AME (FAME) Church in Las Vegas, NV. She is their first female senior pastor.
 
She has served on various committees and boards on both the conference and 5 th district levels of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. She is in her second term as Secretary of 5 th Episcopal District Women in Ministry (WIM).
 
She has been a speaker for the 2018 Women’s March in St. Louis; Sojourner’s Summit; 2019 Power Rising Conference and others. She has received numerous awards for leadership and civic engagement. Dr. Anderson is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and Theta Phi International Honor Society for Theological Education. The memory of struggling with issues of self-worth and efficacy were the catalyst for her doctoral thesis “Why Not Me: Developing Female Leadership through Transformed Perceptions of Self-Worth.”
 
She is eternally grateful for her greatest gift, her family. She and husband, Joseph share three adult children and five beautiful grandchildren. Rev. Anderson holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Webster University, St. Louis, a Master of Divinity, with emphasis in Pastoral Care and Counseling, from Turner Theological Seminary at the I.T.C. in Atlanta, GA and a Doctor of Ministry degree from United Theological Seminary in Ohio.
