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 Programs

Live Oak UU welcomes you to join us for worship and fellowship twice a month -- on 1st and 3rd Sundays (January through December). Upcoming service descriptions are listed below.

On the 2nd Sunday of the month (October through May) we offer adult exploration of a range of spiritual topics through both shared readings and thought-provoking discussion (no pre-work required).

Worship: Sunday, April 5, 4:00 p.m.
Dancing in the Dark, a live-stream worship service led by Mary MacKay and Jim Freschi

Watch your mail for details on how to connect with us on Sunday, April 5, using your computer or smart phone and Zoom. It's quite easy (and no charge). We hope you will join us for our first on-line worship service. It looks like this will be our method of gathering for a while. Let's all work together to create the same loving connection we have when we are able to gather in the sanctuary together.

Soul Talk: Sunday, April 12, 4:00-5:30 p.m.
Topic for this month's adult study & discussion: Connection

puzzle piecesConnection is a topic of particular concern during these times of personal isolation due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We all have a need for connecting… to family and loved ones, to friends and colleagues, to associations and organizations, and to the larger communities of which are a part. In this session we will explore both the nature and variety of our connections with others and why these bonds are essential to our individual and collective well-being.

Because of the current California-wide shelter-in-place order, we will be meeting via Zoom this month.

To register for this Soul Talk and receive the Zoom link for this gathering, please email Richard Stromer at no later than Friday, April 10. To allow adequate time for each person’s participation in the discussion, attendance will be limited to 10 people.

Worship: Sunday, April 19, 4:00 p.m.
Title TBA
Worship led by Kate Hand and Lisa Fry

More information to come. Note: again, this service will be conducted using Zoom.
