After serving the Vassalboro United Methodist Church for 11 years and serving in the ministry for over 50 years, Pastor F. Gary Hubley and his wife Judy, of Randolph, retired June 30, 2021. Pastor Hubley was honored at a luncheon following services on Sunday, June 13. He and Judy will be sorely missed.
Pastor Hubley served the Vassalboro church with distinction. He will be well known for his wit and his thoughtfulness. He always kept in contact with members of his congregation both in their time of need and in their time of joyfulness. He truly cared for his church and the people within this community. He and his wife, Judy, always took part in whatever the church sponsored such as public suppers, bake sales, craft fairs, coffee fellowships, children’s programs, Bible studies, etc. They served as an example of how we too should serve. We thank them for their service.
The congregation wishes them both a happy and healthy retirement with time and ability to enjoy a little fishing, something both of them enjoy.
Pastor Karen Merrill, of West Gardiner, will lead the Vassalboro United Methodist Church as of July 1, 2021. She and her husband have connections to this community and the community is looking forward to her leadership and guidance.
