Upcoming Sunday Services & Programs at Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

Worship_leader_Stromer_inviting_embracing_meditationJoin us on Sundays! We offer spirited and thoughtful worship services -- plus fellowship -- two (2) Sundays a month (1st and 3rd Sundays of each month) at 4:00 p.m. at 1700 Santa Clara Avenue in Alameda (in the sanctuary of Christ Episcopal Church).

We provide Religious Exploration programming for children and youth on the 1st and 3rd Sundays, too. Of course, kids of all ages are always welcome to stay in the sanctuary with their parent(s). We often have a few young ones there. Likewise, parents are always welcome in the children's classroom.

Many visitors join members and friends after worship to chat or ask questions. And many stay for a fellowship Accessible icon and assisted listening device iconmeal. It's a terrific opportunity to get to know a few people as we break bread together. We hope you will consider joining us for the meal.

Accessibility is important to us. The sanctuary, guild room, parish hall, bathrooms, and courtyard are wheelchair accessible. We also offer assisted listening devices in the sanctuary. And we have large-print Orders of Service (programs) and hymnals. Just ask the greeter at the welcome table for any of these. And please do tell us if you have other needs that we might be able to accommodate.

Upcoming Sunday Services & Programs -- 2018

Live Oak UU welcomes you to join us for worship, fellowship, and children's programming twice a month -- on 1st and 3rd Sundays (January through December).

Sunday, August 19, 4:00 p.m.
How to Remain Sane and Hold onto Hope
Worship led by Kate Hand and Peter Hand

If you find yourself regularly shaking your head in disbelief, or feeling your stomach clenched with anxiety at the current state of our political landscape, and the growing perils facing our planet, you are not alone. Join Kate and Peter Hand in an examination of some perspectives, as well as some spiritual practices, that might just help light a candle in the darkness. The choir will be singing the rousing spiritual "Bring Me Little Water, Sylvie," and Kate Hand, Jackie Roth, and Kathy Post will be singing "One Voice" by the Wailin' Jennys.

Sunday, September 2, 4:00 p.m.
Nice Work If You Can Get It
Worship led by Mary MacKay and Jay Roller

Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing." ~ Theodore Roosevelt

While there is a balance to be sought, as in all things, work weaves meaning and connection through our lives. We may have started “work” when we were children, mowing lawns, throwing papers, babysitting, selling lemonade. Some jobs we work for wages, others out of love or simple necessity. Join us this Labor Day weekend in celebrating the complex and ever-changing nature of work.

Sunday, September 16, 4:00 p.m.
Worship led by Richard Stromer and Jim Freschi

More to come.
