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).

Kids of all ages are always welcome to stay in the sanctuary with their parent(s). We often have a few young ones there. At the back of the sanctuary there is a carpeted area with a child-sized table and chairs, art supplies, and a few toys for kids. There are also a few cloth bags with quiet toys that children may play with as they sit in the pews by a parent. Some kids choose to sit in the back and quietly read or play. (We hope soon to once again offer a children's religious exploration program as an alternative for kids (preschool age & older.)

We are always delighted when 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 -- 2019

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).

Worship: Sunday, September 15, 4:00 p.m.
Wild and Precious Life
Worship led by Mary MacKay and Jim Freschi

“All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.” ~ Marie Curie

"If you can't be in awe of Mother Nature, there's something wrong with you." ~ Alex Trebek

Whether you are a wilderness explorer or a porch-sitting urbanite, we are all connected and touched by the natural world (of which we are a part!). Science tells us that nature has a powerful positive effect on our well-being – but we already know that in our hearts. Join us in celebration of our relationship to the wild or natural world and explore the lessons we carry from our journey together on this pale blue dot.

Worship: Sunday, October 6, 4:00 p.m.
To Life! (A Service in Honor of the Jewish High Holy Days)
Worship led by Richard Stromer and Lisa Fry

Life has a way of confusing us, blessing and bruising us. Drink L’Chaim… To Life!

                                                                          ~ from Fiddler on the Roof

Whether the occasion is a birth, a wedding, or a funeral, Jews always exchange the same traditional toast, L’Chaim, which means “To Life!”  In this service, our annual observance of the Jewish High Holy Days, we will explore the Judaic tradition’s ancient commitment to celebrating life in all its joy and sorrow, complexity and challenge. As a part of this High Holy Day observance, we will celebrate our Ritual of Letting Go, an opportunity to symbolically release whatever in ourselves and our lives no longer serves us. Like the age-old Jewish custom on which it is based, this ritual encourages us toward self-reflection, hope, and renewal, at this season of the year.

Worship: Sunday, October 20, 4:00 p.m.
Worship led by Guest Preacher Tovis Page and Darlene Pagano

More to come.
