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 friends and members stay after worship for a fellowship Accessible icon and assisted listening device iconmeal. Everyone is invited to stay. 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 -- 2017

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).

Embracing Sorrow
Worship led by Kris Arrington and Richard Stromer

Even the saddest things can become, once we have made peace with them, a source of wisdom and strength for the journey that still lies ahead.  ~ Frederick Buechner

Among the greatest challenges all of us must inevitably face is learning to embrace sorrow. In that process, we discover that profound sadness has the power to make us both wiser and more compassionate beings. In this service, we will explore these and other precious gifts which come to us through mindfully embracing life’s deepest woes.

Sunday, May 21, 4:00 p.m.
The Language of Music
Photo Bruce Silverman, guest leaderWorship led by Guest Bruce Silverman and Jay Roller

Music may be the original source of language. People have communed with nature and themselves over the millennia through making sounds together. Today we will experience some of that communal language. We will use chants and music from many groupings of the human family. Bruce Silverman, ritualist, will lead us with the language of music and poetry.  

Sunday, June 4, 4:00 p.m.
Worship led by Mary MacKay and Richard Stromer

More to come.
