The call was received about 5:30 p.m. The investigation continues.
Church spokesman Dakarai Aarons said no evidence of a bomb had been found inside the church.
“Obviously it’s concerning when something like that happens, but we are going to continue our work as Metropolitan A.M.E. church,” he said.
