COUNT focuses on volunteering and outreach. The projects that we take on are those that help the world around us and positively affect the lives and reputations of atheists and other non believers.
Every week we will meet to review those upcoming projects and then spend some time discussing a weekly topic that will help develop and support the local atheist/non-theist community, discuss secular viewpoints, encourage a positive atheist/non-theist culture, and provide opportunities for socializing and friendship.
This week, with Easter fast approaching, we will be discussing the oldest Christian holiday. How do you celebrate it – if you celebrate it at all? In a broader sense, do atheists and those that aren’t religious have anything to celebrate? Have religious holidays become secular over time and no longer hold the meaning they once did? What holidays do you look forward to?

If we have time, we’ll open up the floor to other topics. Afterwards, we are would love to spend time hanging out, having a few drinks, and getting to know one another.
Atheist, agnostics, other non-theists, and atheist-friendly people are welcome to join us.
