What is a Freethinker?

One who forms opinions on the basis of reason independently of authority; especially : one who doubts or denies religious dogma

Who are the Springfield Freethinkers?

We are a social organization building a supportive community of non-believers, humanists, atheists, agnostics, secularists, and skeptics in a region that is not always conducive to freethought.  To help develop the community, we offer a wide variety of events to cater to freethinkers of all tastes. Feel free to explore them all.

All of our events are open and the majority of them are free.  You do not have to be a member to attend anything, though we do hope you will choose to join as an official dues- paying member.

Regular meetings include  Freethinking Gamers, Freethinking Films, and the Speaker Series followed by the Open Board Meeting.  We schedule different social events throughout the year such as cave tours, hikes, astronomy nights, bowling, and potlucks.  Ideas and suggestions for social events are always welcome.  

The Springfield Freethinkers also help with various
fundraisers for multiple local charities and conduct street clean-up for the city of Springfield.  Our group is ever evolving and responsive to the needs of our members.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
