Live Oak UU Fellowship
in Alameda

Welcome to Live Oak UU Fellowship

We create loving community
through worship and service to others

Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a progressive spiritual community in the heart of Alameda. We walk diverse paths to find meaning and purpose but are united by our belief in the worth and dignity of all and the obligation to express our faith through acts of justice and compassion.  Please join us as we create a diverse, spirit-growing, justice-seeking community.

Organized in 2009, we are a small lay-led fellowship that aligns itself with the Unitarian Universalist Association. 
We  meet on the first and third Sundays of each month at 4 p.m. at Christ Episcopal Church in Alameda.

Our services are filled with music and meaning and are led by members of our congregation. We frequently feature guest speakers from throughout the Bay Area.  After every service,  we have a community meal for all attendees. 

Each Sunday's offering is donated to outside organizations whose values reflect our own.  Recently, we have given to organizations ranging from the Alameda Food Bank and the Boys and Girls Club of Alameda to Americares.

In addition to our services, we have a number of small groups that meet regularly and other activities including game nights and picnics. 

Live Oak welcomes everybody. Everybody means - whatever you look like, however you speak, whoever you love, however you dress, whoever you live with, rich, poor, tall, short, dark, light - in all the myriad confusing ways we are human, we welcome YOU.

'It's About Love'  Sunday, May 5 at Live Oak
Kai Marks returns to Live Oak Sunday, May 19 at 4 p.m. and will deliver a sermon titled: "Stronger Than Joy"

We’re often told that adversity or difficult experiences are the keys to building strength and stamina? she asked.

But, what if I told you that joy builds strength?

Cultivating joy is a powerful way to become stronger, and doing so can help us to face adversity and challenges with inspiration and fortitude rather than fear or dread.

Like grace, joy is a potent substance that change our lives and the lives of those around us, bringing us one step closer to our destiny.

Kai is a frequent guest speaker at Live Oak and is a writer, teacher, spiritual director, and member of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Redwood City. She graduated from the Caroline Myss Education Institute programs in archetypes and mysticism and the Disney Institute program for Excellence in Leadership.  She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of San Francisco .
Live Oak's Jay Roller will be the worship associate for this service. We meet on the first and third Sundays of each month at Christ Episcopal Church in Alameda.
