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.
We create loving community
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.
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 and music on 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sundays. On 2nd Sundays, we meet in the Guild Room for classes, discussions, and other ways of being in community. Join us for UU American Roots, a class offered for 5 months (Feb-June, 2015) on 2nd 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.

Games, Games, and More Games!
(No worship service this Sunday)
This is a 5th Sunday of the month, an occasional treat! Join us in the Guild Room for a chance to hang out together, play a variety of games, enjoy a communal meal, and relax! Kids, youth, and adults are all welcome. Bring a game or two, if you wish. Or learn a new game! (Several folks learned some great new games at our most recent Games Night.) Come try one of those -- or some of the past favorites. Fun for all levels of players! Kids, youth, adults, and guests are welcome!
And join us for a traditional worship service the following week:
Sunday, September 6, 4:00 p.m.
Old Age is Not for Sissies
Worship Leader: Kate Hand; Worship Associate: Kris Arrington
“It's paradoxical that the idea of living a long life appeals to everyone, but the idea of getting old doesn't appeal to anyone.” ― Andy Rooney
“In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless. (418)” ― Victoria Moran, Younger by the Day: 365 Ways to Rejuvenate Your Body and Revitalize Your Spirit
Join Worship Leader Kate Hand and Worship Associate Kris Arrington as they explore the gifts and the losses that aging brings to all of us who are lucky enough to live a long life, and some spiritual practices that may help make our golden years richer.
