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 -- 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).

Sunday, November 19, 4:00 p.m.
Our Better Half? The Loving and Joyful Universalists

Worship led by Darlene Pagano

“The Universalists think God is too good to damn them forever; the Unitarians think they are too good to be damned...”  ~ Thomas Starr King (19th century Universalist minister)

Much as we love our famous Unitarian forebears, they have a rather stern reputation (“God’s frozen people”). What about the other half of our theologic family, the Universalists? From the beginning, Universalists believed in a God who embraced everyone, challenging its members to reach out to those marginalized by society. With less emphasis on intellectualism and a livelier style of worship, the Universalists may be the more fun side of our past – but they also bring a deep moral tradition of creating greater justice in this world

Sunday, December 3, 4:00 p.m.
Not Your Grandparents' Religion

Worship led by Jay Roller and Darlene Pagano

Salvation is a term that doesn't sit well with many who identify as "liberal religious" or "spiritual, but not religious." But is there something salvific about what groups like our UU Fellowship have to offer? Absolutely.

"Surely the earth can be saved by all the people who insist on love." ~ Alice Walker

Sunday, December 17, 4:00 p.m.
Celebrating the Winter Solstice, Dark and Light
CandlesWorship led by Kate Hand and Richard Stromer

The darkness is upon us. But the days will soon grow longer. Join Worship Leaders Kate Hand and Richard Stromer as we explore and celebrate the darkness and the light that infuses our lives. We'll conclude this service with our annual candlelight ritual. Come and renew your spirit with us.

Come early (3:00 p.m.) for our annual holiday concert. There will be a short break between the concert and the service. Both the concert and the solstice service offer particularly wonderful opportunities for guests to experience Live Oak UU. In the spirit of the season, we welcome all.
