Mattapoisett Congregational Church cancels activities to prevent coronavirus spread

Mar 13, 2020

MATTAPOISETT — The Mattapoisett Congregational Church announced March 13 that it will suspend all activities at the church for two weeks. 

This includes worship services on Sunday, March 15 and Sunday, March 22, fellowship activities including Open Table, and classes including the Lenten series on Sunday and Monday evenings, as well as all the organizations that use the building.

The church will send out “email worships” to the congregation on Sunday mornings instead. 

Phil Jackson, chair of the church’s council said, “this was not an easy decision. As people of faith, coming together is important for our spiritual health, as well as our mental and emotional health, especially in times of crisis. Our plan was to continue as many activities as possible. However, it has become abundantly clear that the safest, most prudent course of action is simply to comply with the recommendations of health experts.”

Reverend Amy Lignitz Harken  expressed regret and concern for everyone affected by the health crisis and encouraged others to “stay connected with each other via telephone, e-mail and
social media.”

For questions or concerns, contact the church at 508-758-2671 and someone will return the call as quickly as possible.
