Plans for Paternity Leave

As most of you probably already know, either this month or next I will be headed out on paternity leave with the birth of our first child.  Since this is the first time in a while that a pastor here has had a child on the way, I thought it might wise to give you folks an update on what to expect.

 According to the United Methodist Church’s rules, I can take up to eight weeks of paternity leave, with an additional seven weeks unpaid.  Those weeks can be spread out too, they don’t need to be taken concurrently.  Frankly, unless there is a major health concern for my wife or our baby, I won’t be taking all of that.  The tentative plan right now is to take three weeks on the front end to get all settled in, with another ten days or so taken during Thanksgiving week to see the family around hunting season.  While I am out of the office during those times there are a couple of things that you should expect.

-While we never know exactly when a child will be born, we do know the likely timeframe.  Our expected due date is the first week in September, but all throughout August we will be taking the precautions necessary in case our daughter comes early.  What this means for you is that at any point during August or September I may begin my paternity leave.

-During paternity leave we will be calling upon a few different ministers to preach in my absence.  We have a couple within our congregation, so these are the people we will look to as we do usually when I am on vacation.  However, as children coming into the world is unexpected, we will have a backup plan of a couple of pre-recorded sermons that we will be able to post online.  When the time comes for our daughter to be born I will be in contact with the secretary and the SPRC chair to make sure that everything is put into motion and that everyone is notified what is going on.

-When the time comes we will be notifying all of our congregants and regular attenders via all of our available platforms.  E-mail, phone calls, Facebook, and the church website will all be updated, so you will be notified ahead of time.

-Following our child’s birth I will be completely unavailable for at least the first fourteen days afterwards, but following that I will phase back in gradually.  I will not lead worship that third Sunday, but I will be in attendance and available for assistance that week.

 -Youth Group will still start up (although it depends on Covid concerns) likely during those three weeks.  Jacob Ewing from the Congregational Church will be the leader while I am gone.

-If there are any health concerns or other issues that come up, I will be sure to notify the church and the conference immediately.

-Coming back from paternity leave we will resume our regular outdoor worship in the same fashion that we have been worshiping throughout the summer.

As always if there are any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to e-mail me or call me, know that we are so thankful for all of the prayers we are so thankful that we will be raising our daughter in such a loving church community😊

Blessings on your day,

Pastor Jacob Hanson
