The Rev. Rachel Erin Stuart

The Rev. Rachel Erin Stuart comes to us from Atlanta, GA, where she was the Theologian-in-Residence at North Decatur United Methodist Church and continues as a doctoral candidate in Hebrew Bible at Emory University. Her dissertation, titled “Semantic Gender in the Book of Ezekiel,” explores the relationship between grammatical gender and social gender roles in several chapters of Ezekiel. Prior to her appointment at North Decatur, she interned at Kingston UMC in the Princeton, NJ area, and at Asbury First UMC here in Rochester.

Rev. Rachel is an ordained Elder, graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2017, and returns to the area after completing her undergraduate degrees in physics, music, and religion at the University of Rochester in 2014. She is a life-long Methodist, does medieval reenactment for fun, and has a gorgeous black cat that can do no wrong.

In addition to her appointment at Victor, Rev. Rachel also works at East Bloomfield United Methodist Church, with her time divided evenly between both.

A favorite verse (or two):

Who is like you, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in splendor, worker of wonders?

Exod 15:11

And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See I am making all things new.”

Rev 21:5

Wendy Hubert

Wendy joined VUMC as a part-time Finance/Admin Secretary in February 2020, just before the pandemic hit. She is retired from the US Postal Service, where she served as a clerk & field trainer in Victor for 20 years, before being promoted to Postmaster of Ionia and then Union Hill, NY. She finished her career as an Executive Administrative Assistant to the Plant Manager at the Rochester Processing and Delivery Center, which handles all incoming and outgoing Priority mail for Western NY.

Wendy is proud Mom to one son, Nate, and two grandchildren, Drake & Allana, who all live locally. She keeps busy, working as a fill-in at the gift shop at the Seneca Arts & Cultural Center in Victor, and volunteers at Sonnenberg Gardens in Canandaigua, where she has enjoyed directing and acting in the Annual Fall Mansion Mystery at Sonnenberg Gardens for the past 10 years.

A favorite quote:

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
