Live Oak UU Fellowship
in Alameda

Welcome to Live Oak UU Fellowship

We create loving community
through worship and service to others

Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Fellowship 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.  Please join us as we create a diverse, spirit-growing, justice-seeking community.

Organized in 2009, we are a small lay-led fellowship that aligns itself with the Unitarian Universalist Association. 
We  meet on the first and third Sundays of each month at 4 p.m. at Christ Episcopal Church in Alameda.

Our services are filled with music and meaning and are led by members of our congregation. We frequently feature guest speakers from throughout the Bay Area.  After every service,  we have a community meal for all attendees. 

Each Sunday's offering is donated to outside organizations whose values reflect our own. 

In addition to our services, we have a number of small groups that meet regularly and other activities including game nights and picnics. 

Live Oak welcomes everybody. Everybody means - whatever you look like, however you speak, whoever you love, however you dress, whoever you live with, rich, poor, tall, short, dark, light - in all the myriad confusing ways we are human, we welcome YOU.

'The Writes of Freedom' Sunday,  Dec. 3 

Frequent Guest Speaker Rev. Ben Meyers will give a homily titled 'The Writes of Freedom' when he returns to Live Oak on Sunday, Dec. 3.
The American author John Green writes, "Efforts to restrict stories are often efforts to restrict empathy, understanding, compassion and the truth of people’s lives’.
Ben said his sermon will expound upon this idea in response to the rise of fascism currently eroding our freedoms and defiling our democracy.      
Rev. Ben Meyers is a resident of Oakland, where he enjoys daily strolls around Lake Merritt and spending time with his two-and-a-half-year-old grandson. His ministry spans over 28 years as a parish minister and social justice/community minister for several communities and organizations throughout Northern California. 
Ben's passion is working with individuals and faith-based communities nationwide as a Solar and Clean Energy consultant. His mission is to accelerate the adoption of clean energy as a moral imperative. As a proud parent of a transgender child, he is also a vocal ally and avid advocate for LGBTQ+ rights.
Live Oak's Jay Roller  will be the worship associate for this service which will begin at 4 p.m.
We meet on the first and third Sundays of each month at Christ Episcopal Church in Alameda.
