TL;DR Version:

This is a social support group for people who would like to associate with others who understand their background.  We are not an advocacy group.  We support and respect everyone's own path and right to make their own decisions. 

Our meetups are about validation, loud laughter, and friendships. 


Long Version:

This Group is For disaffected Mormons. Are you a former or struggling member of the Mormon Church? Was your world turned upside-down when you left? Have you wondered how you could ever share these experiences with anyone? Or do you just want to hang out with people who get it? Whether you just left the church yesterday, or you left many years ago, if you're an ex/post/lapsed Mormon this group is for you! --Even if you are still officially on their membership roster. Not all of us have gone through the steps of having our names officially removed. Either way, if you're no longer a believer, you are welcome to join us! 

We’re a social/support group aimed at discussing the pain of leaving the church, sharing the joy of being free, and drinking coffee on the Sabbath. We are open to all types of events, but currently we tend to have potlucks every month or two. Come join us as we eat delicious food and talk the night away! 

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to share their personal experiences of being a member of the church and what it was like to leave. Although we aren't a structured or professional support group, we have all gone through the experience of leaving the church so you will find support, camaraderie and understanding from people who share your LDS cultural heritage. 

Important Note : While all disaffected Mormons are welcome, our group isn't for everyone. Current believers  of Mormonism are asked not to join or participate because this group is intended as a means of support for those who want to distance themselves from the Mormon Church and minimize its influence in their lives. Anyone who comes here to defend or evangelize the cause of Mormonism ( or any other religion and/or belief system ) will have their membership blocked, and their comments deleted. There are other places for that. This is a recovery site, please respect our right to free expression. 

If you are an Ex-Mormon who is still a believing Christian, you are definitely welcome in our group. However, please know that many of our active members are agnostic and/or atheist so you would need to feel comfortable with that. You would also need to refrain from evangelizing in any way at our group events. 

We're 165 Ex-Mormons
