Last Week's Sermon
WEEKLY NEWSFLASH
OPUMC Website_edited.png
IMG_4846.JPG

Let us allow our faith to grow towards the brilliance of God’s Holy Light. Let us consider ourselves and our community in togetherness to “press on towards the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.” Let us be aware that we are more than merely surviving and what we achieve in society still needs to be connected with the Living Christ.

I look forward to what God will do in this season!

Yours in Christ,
 
Pastor Tanya Spencer

Pastor Tanya's designated office hours are Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10a-3p. Please contact Pastor Tanya to schedule a meeting: (PastorTanya@opumc.com or 716-783-4443.)

Radical Hospitality • Passionate Worship

Intentional Faith Development • Risk Taking Mission

Extravagant Generosity

Greetings in Christ!

I believe in the mind, body, and spirit connection of both the individual and the community. I passionately believe that “God is Still Speaking” since, we “have been born anew, not of perishable but of imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God… Like living stones, let (us) be built into a spiritual house.” I believe that our growth will be a collaborative effort. God is still blessing us with the discovery of our talents to promote an honorable world.

GriefShare Support Group
Thursdays 2:30 PM-4 PM  |  April 4-June 27

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.

In GriefShare, you’ll learn helpful, practical information that will help you recover from the pain of grief and loss. The GriefShare DVD videos feature top experts on grief recovery subjects and case studies of people just like you, who have been through the grief experience.

You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any of the videos you have not seen.

Church ends 52-year-old anti-gay stance

By Heather Hahn
May 2, 2024 | CHARLOTTE, N.C. (UM News)

  • General Conference delegates supported a revision of the Social Principles that deletes the phrase “the practice of homosexuality… is incompatible with Christian teaching.”

  • The 1972 General Conference added the phrase to The United Methodist Church’s Social Principles, and it has been a source of conflict in the decades since.

  • The vote came after about an hour and a half of debate and an amendment to its statement on marriage.

  • The historic May 2 vote came after days of General Conference reversing restrictions on LGBTQ ministry without debate.

Please contact Pastor Tanya to schedule a meeting.

Practicing Christ's Unconditional Love

Orchard Park United Methodist Church is a Reconciling Congregation.

We celebrate God’s gift of diversity and value the wholeness made possible in community equally shared and shepherded by all. We welcome and affirm people of every gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, who are also of every age, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, level of education, and family structure, and of every economic, immigration, marital, and social status, and so much more. We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic, and political inequities. As followers of Jesus, we commit ourselves to the pursuit of justice and pledge to stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed.
