...that Rev. Kit was in Cleveland (Aug 7-10) at the UCC Church House (denominational headquarters), for Orientation to the Next Generation Leadership Initiative (NGLI), to which she was accepted this summer? An initiative of the UCC Pension Boards, NGLI equips, energizes and empowers younger UCC pastors to build vibrant congregations that change lives and further God’s mission in the world. Thanks to the study leave First Church provides its pastors, Kit is grateful to be able to make this significant commitment of approximately two weeks a year for 10 years.
