The pastor of North Church said he will not reopen the church, even though the state says he can, on June 5.

Rev. Frank Newsome said he and the church leadership feel it would be irresponsible at this time. He said right now they set September as a possible opening date.

“We had to weigh every factor,” said Newsome. “Ultimately the question came down to this – will we facilitate the spread of a deadly virus just to worship in person? The underlying factor to me is that this is our church’s way of speaking up.”
