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, March 4, 4:00 p.m.
On Faith, Hope, and #MeToo
Ellie Kilpatrick, Worship LeaderWorship led by Jay Roller; Guest Speaker is Eleanor (Ellie) Kilpatrick

Please join us as our speaker looks at the #MeToo movement from a Unitarian Universalist perspective. She will examine some of the more controversial elements of this movement, the stories that have been told, and how we are called to respond.

Eleanor (Ellie) Kilpatrick is a Candidate for Ministry in the Unitarian Universalist Association. She has a background in UU congregational ministry (she has interned for three churches), and in hospital chaplaincy. Originally born and raised in New York City, she graduated from Yale Divinity School in 2012, and moved to the Bay Area in 2013. She lives with her husband, Mick, her dog, Angie, and her 5-month-old daughter, Tali. She is overjoyed to be speaking at our service.

Sunday, March 18, 4:00 p.m.
Three men singing.Music Alone Shall Live
Worship led by Richard Stromer

All things shall perish from under the sky.
Music alone shall live.
Music alone shall live.
Music alone shall live under the sky.
                             -- German Folk Song

Music is an integral part of worship in many religious traditions, including our own Unitarian Universalist faith. In this service, we will focus on the unique spiritual power of music to inspire, heal, and transform our lives. Rather than having music support the spoken word as is usual in our worship, this service will celebrate music itself, both from our wonderful choir and through congregational singing, as well as in reflections from choir members about what music has meant to them in their spiritual journeys.

Sunday, April 1, 4:00 p.m.
Easter / Passover (Title to come)
Worship led by Mary MacKay and Peter Hand

More to come.
