Young Adult Minister Kit Novotny and her husband Nate Klug (poet and pastor of First Church Redwood City UCC) are looking forward to welcoming their baby girl at the end of May (due date May 26).
Kit is currently taking three months of parental leave as specified in NCNC-UCC Conference Guidelines. She will return in late August. The pastoral staff will cover her responsibilities collaboratively during this time. Several young adults in the congregation will also step up to keep up the momentum of young adult ministry opportunities over the summer. Open Chapel young adult worship will take its usual break from June–August.
