About United Lutheran Church
Our congregation, a merger between Our Saviour and First Lutheran Church of Oakland, evolves each day. As a member church of the Sierra Pacific Synod of California of the Evangelical Lutheran Churches of America, our United’s history extends more than 125 years in the Bay Area.
At United, you will not only find a welcoming and active church home and community of friends, you will also find competent and compassionate high quality early childhood development education and serving children age 2 to 6 years.

United Lutheran Church of Oakland is a Beloved Community, rooted in the teachings and values of Love, Jesus Christ and Togetherness. We openly welcome all people as Children of God. We realize God's Will in our creative and compassionate expressions and service to one another. We are One with God and all Humanity.
We gather on Sunday mornings in love and joy inspired by innovative Word, music, meditation, prayer and being in relationship with each other.
We form small groups for study of God's Word, including the Bible and to learn techniques of Mindfulness and other special topics of interest to renew and rejuvenate each other as human beings living a Christ-led and compassion-filled life.
We accept the spiritual curiosity of our children, young people, adults and the elderly and support their education and well-being through participation in the East Bay Lutheran Parish.
We celebrate each other's talents and gifts and encourage the giving of our gifts in realizing God's Will for our Beloved Community.
We feed the hungry, clothe the poor, pursue justice for all, pray for and support healing through our volunteerism and financial resources.
We utilize our Church Home facilities for the good of our immediate Oakland neighborhood, sponsoring events that inspire and celebrate the joys of life.
We do this in the name of our Savior and Lord Jesus Chris
We love the Oakland Community
