Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a congregation of UUs serving the San Francisco Bay area, especially Alameda, Berkeley, Oakland, Piedmont, San Leandro, and nearby communities.

Welcome!

We create loving community
through worship and service to others.

Live Oak is a progressive religious community in the heart of Alameda. We walk diverse paths to find meaning and purpose, but are united by our belief in the worth and dignity of all, and the obligation to express our faith through acts of justice and compassion. Join us as we create a diverse, spirit-growing, justice-seeking community.

Live Oak members and friends waving at the camera We look forward to welcoming you in our fully wheelchair accessible home: 1700 Santa Clara Ave., Alameda (in the Christ Episcopal Church building at the corner of Santa Clara and Grand).

Join us in the sanctuary for worship on 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sundays. On 2nd Sundays, we meet in the Guild Room Accessible iconfor a less formal discussion program, Speaking Of ... Second Sundays. (The Guild Room is in the building just behind and a little to the left of the main sanctuary building.) Things vary on 5th Sundays. Watch here for information about them.

Children and youth join the adults for the first 15 minutes of each worship service, which includes music and a story for all ages. Children and their teachers then head to their classrooms. Several times a year, the children stay and participate with the adults in a multi-generational service. Children are, of course, always welcome to stay with a parent in the service. Likewise, parents are always welcome to go into the classroom with their child(ren).

Supper after: Many friends and members stay after our programs for a fellowship meal. Everyone is invited to stay to get to know us and to break bread together. We hope you will join us.

For more details, please contact info@uuliveoak.org.

Living with a Wild God
Guest Preacher: Rev. Bonnie Dlott; Worship Leader: Richard Stromer

As an adolescent, best-selling author, scientist, and activist Barbara Ehrenreich had an unexplainable “mystical” experience that was cataclysmic, life altering, and unthinkable for a staunch atheist and rationalist. Join us today for reflections on science, religion, and the human condition from Ehrenreich’s most recent book, Living with a Wild God.

We welcome Bonnie back to our pulpit for a third time! Bonnie is the settled minister at the UU Fellowship of North Bay in Napa. She holds an undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology from UC Berkeley and a PhD from the UCLA School of Medicine in Biological Chemistry. After discovering Unitarian Universalism in 1996, she experienced a powerful calling to the ministry. She describes herself as an “Earth-based mystic.”
