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 on 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sundays. On 2nd Sundays, we meet in the Guild Room for 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.

The Power of One Life
Guest Preacher: Rev. Dorsey Blake; Worship Leader: Darlene Pagano
We have all benefited on many occasions from one life speaking to us -- meeting us where we needed to be met, sustaining us, and pointing us to a better reality. Each one of us is called to be that one life to others. Today's service will explore the possible impact of a single life -- the life of any one of us -- in helping to guide, heal, and transform the living of others.
The Rev. Dr. Dorsey Blake serves as pastor of the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples in San Francisco, the nation's first interracial, interfaith congregation. He is also Associate Professor of Spirituality and Prophetic Justice at Starr King School for the Ministry. Dr. Blake has also served as Vice President for Community Learning at the University of Creation Spirituality and is the founding co-director of the University of Creation Spirituality Doctor of Ministry program. He's also the former director of the Graduate Theological Union's Center for Urban Black Studies and a former University of Alabama professor, with experience in field ministry and interfaith, justice and peace work.
