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, September 20, 4:00 p.m.
Beginning Again in Love
Worship Leaders: Richard Stromer and Jay Roller

Both Unitarian Universalism and Judaism draw inspiration from many of the same sources and a sizeable proportion of UUs have cultural and religious ties to the Jewish faith. Please join us for our annual  homage to the Jewish High Days celebration and the bonds that link these two traditions.

We'll examine what this most important time of the year in the Jewish calendar might mean to  us as UUs, as well as observing a home version of our annual Ritual of Letting Go. Through this ritual, we are given an opportunity to symbolically release whatever separates us from each other and the oneness of all things, thereby allowing us to begin again in love. If there was ever a time in which we – both as individuals and as a society – needed to stop, reflect, repent, and begin again in love, that time is now.  [To celebrate the Ritual of Letting Go at home, we suggest you have ready a small container of water and some granulated salt.]

If you are NOT on the Live Oak UU email list, please feel free to ask for access to any of our worship services by sending an email to NOTE: You can also enjoy most of our services on our "Past Homilies & Reflections" page, a few days after each service. Anyone is welcome to listen to recordings of previous worship service elements.
