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 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! 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.

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) 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.

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 and more: Many friends and members stay after our worship services for 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.

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


Live Oak's Next Sunday Worship Program

Sunday, October 21, 4:00 p.m.
Good and Mad: the Role of Righteous Anger as a Catalyst for Change
Worship led by Mary MacKay and Lisa Fry

"A man who does not know how to be angry does not know how to be good. And a man that does not know how to be shaken to his heart's core with indignation over things evil is either a fungus or a wicked man." ~ Henry Ward Beecher

"Usually when people are sad, they don't do anything… But when they get angry, they bring about a change." ~ Malcolm X

As human beings we know well the destructive power of anger -- but is there a constructive role for anger and, if so, how do we transform rage into appropriate action? How do cultural norms dictate who is allowed to express anger and what do the rest of us do? Class, gender, race, may all play a role in how we experience even our own emotions. Join us in exploring the ancient idea of Righteous Anger.
