Lake Merritt United Methodist Church sits between Lakeshore Ave and 1st Ave. The “front” address is 1330 Lakeshore Ave, right on the lake (near the 12th St end). There is another entrance at the “back” of the building at 1255 – 1st Ave. There is a small parking lot at the back of the building (1st Ave), and street parking by the lake and nearby neighborhood. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THE SIGNS — some street parking is 2 or 3 hours only. Some is unlimited.

Carpooling and public transit are encouraged. The closest BART station is Lake Merritt (about 1/2 mile away), and several AC transit routes stop right by the 1st Ave entrance at 1st Ave & International.
