Rev. Kit Novotny

Associate Pastor

Meet Kit


Kit finds joy in holding sacred space with creativity and compassion — from playful storytelling on Sunday mornings, to leading our interactive Open Chapel services, to meandering heart-to-hearts over cups of coffee. She supports all kinds of goings on around First Church, including young adult ministry, pastoral care, hospitality, adult education and communications. A graduate of Yale Divinity School and University of Chicago, Kit is part of the UCC’s Next Generation Leadership Initiative. Her joys outside of church include improv comedy, yoga, and spontaneous dance parties. She’s an idea enthusiast with an ever-growing tower of books and podcast queue. Kit and poet/pastor husband Nate Klug have an exuberant toddler and a neurotic terrier. She is grateful to serve this amazing, quirky congregation, who teach her about God’s love daily.
