Monthly Meeting
For our monthly meeting, we usually have a group discussion on a humanist-related topic, share stories of our humanist journeys, and often discuss state and local legislation motivated by the extreme religious right (there' a lot of that here in North Carolina). Our discussions are engaging and interesting. Our humanist community offers a refreshing opportunity for like-minded, freethinkers to share important subject matter and personal experiences. There's no place else in the area quite like this. Please join us - we enjoy new visitors! Following our dicsussion, we enjoy a potluck buffet. Please bring a dish to share, and BYOB, bottled water is provided. To be more "green" please also bring your own tableware (plates and utensils). Contact Ellen if you have questions.

What we're about

We are a non-profit, secular group of atheists, agnostics, skeptics, freethinkers, humanists, non theists, and non-believers - pick whichever label you like best. We are a chapter of the American Humanist Association (AHA) in Washington, DC, and follow their stated philosophy:

A progressive philosophy of life, that without the supernatural beliefs,
affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal
fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.

We started up in November 2012 and welcome any like-minded people to join us for social activities and all the benefits of community. We meet the second Sunday of the month at 5:30 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of New Bern.

Our mission is to provide a positive, secular community where people can develop friendships, socialize, and learn about and support humanism and its values as defined by the American Humanist Association ( for the greater good of humanity.
