Our Building

Lake Merritt United Methodist Church is located at the southeast end of Lake Merritt. Situated next to a 25-story apartment complex, we are not far from the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center. Our main entrance is on Lakeshore Avenue where there is street partking and our parking garage (which is only open by prior arrangement). Our administrative center entry is at the rear of the facility on First Avenue, where there is a small parking lot.

PARKING is not permitted on First Avenue and is limited on Lakeshore Avenue (most spaces have a two hour limit during the daytime, except Sundays and holidays). Some all-day parking is allowed on streets north and east of the church. Please beware of parking restrictions during some hours of the week, and that some parts of those streets only allow two hour parking. All these streets are a few blocks away from the church, so please allow enough time to park and walk to the church. You can enter the church at 1255 First Avenue.
