GriefShare is a special weekly seminar and support group for people grieving the death of a family member or friend.

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.

To register, call the office at 716-662-7912 or email

What We've Been Up To...

Rev. Tanya Spencer became OPUMC's pastor on July 1.


Greetings in Christ!

It is with great appreciation to the Lord and His leading in my life that I now begin my journey here at Orchard Park United Methodist Church serving as your Pastor.

I wanted to be sure to take this opportunity to send you a brief note of thanks as well for accepting me here as part of your church family, and rest assured, I am looking forward to joyous and fruitful ministry in the years to come.

Together we will continue on our spiritual journey. Uniting with the mission of Christ, we are learning to form a relationship that will enable us to be open to where God wants to lead us.

I believe in the mind, body, and spirit connection of both the individual and the community. I work to bring them in healthy partnership. 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.” (1 Pet 1:23, 2:5) 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.

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.” (Phil 3:14) 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
