Welcoming LGBTQ

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 spiritual 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! Be our guest 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 and music on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month (January through December). And for occasional educational or recreational activities, too.

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. And, of course, parents are always welcome to go into the classroom with their child(ren).

Accessible icon and assisted listening device iconAccessibility is important to us. The spaces we use on Sundays (sanctuary, guild room, parish hall, kitchen, bathrooms, and courtyard) are all wheelchair accessible. We also offer assisted listening devices for use in the sanctuary and large-print Orders of Service (programs). Please let the greeter (just inside the front doors) know if any of these will be helpful to you. And please do tell us if you have other needs we might be able to accommodate.

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

Live Oak's Sunday Worship Program

Worship: Sunday, September 1, 4:00 p.m.
The Fruits of Our Labors
Worship led by Guest Minister Sue Magidson and Jay Roller

Sue Magidson, guest preacherTo be human is to work -- at something. Work comes in many forms -- paid, unpaid, visible, invisible, inner, outer, formal, informal. Work can delight, frustrate, reward, humiliate, exhilarate, exhaust, and so much more. This Labor Day weekend, we'll explore how our work binds us to each other and our planet.

We welcome back Rev. Sue Magidson who has preached at Live Oak UU several times in the past. Sue is a community minister affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley (UUCB). She serves as the spiritual care coordinator and hospital chaplain at San Leandro Hospital. Her essays are published in Skinner House books Jewish Voices in Unitarian Universalism and Faithful Practices: Everyday Ways to Feed Your Spirit, as well in Quest, the monthly publication of the Church of the Larger Fellowship.

Workers from many occupations: Labor Day
