  • Coffee and Community at the Reason Center

    1300 Ethan Way

    Please join us at our new Reason Center in Sacramento near Howe and Hurley for casual conversation on topics of the day. We will actually serve coffee, tea, and treats again.

    It will be great to see folks in person after such a long time on Zoom. We plan to have this event in person on the first Sunday of each month, and on Zoom on the third Sunday.

    We look forward to seeing old and new friends there!

    https://zoom.us/j/99257974801

    (This Event is promoted in other groups and platforms and is open to all and since it is an online/virtual event via Zoom you can connect from anywhere in the world.)

    We're on every 1st Monday on Zoom and 3rd Thursday of the month in person.
    Our calendar (including other events): https://www.meetup.com/sfv-atheists-united/events/calendar/
    Group page: https://www.meetup.com/sfv-atheists-united/events/)

    πŸ›‘What to expect:
    Discussion sparked by short videos about atheism, religion, science, current events, critical thinking, comedy, life hacks, health and beyond >>> followed by moderated discussions.

    πŸ›‘What we're about:
    WELCOME to https://www.AheistsUnited.org's meetup - one of many opportunities to engage in mindful discussions, lectures, book clubs, educational forums mostly online, and our In-Person-Volunteer events like the monthly food distribution in person.
    Other Atheists United links are listed below.
    We are an ethically centered community for greater Los Angeles atheists.
    Our mission is to build thriving atheist communities, empower people to express their secular values, and promote the separation of government and religion.

    πŸ›‘Meeting format:
    This is a place for atheists to meet, have dinner with (eating on camera is ok), and talk to other atheists, skeptics and humanists.
    A few agnostics and religious people sometimes show up as well and they are welcome as long as they are not there to proselytize.
    We mandate courtesy and respect to fellow attendees, and no proselytizing. Foremost, this is a social gathering, and support group for like-minded persons, not a debate club.
    If you're coming just to argue on matters of religion or politics, don't bother showing up, you're not going to convert anyone, and you will be asked to leave.

    πŸ›‘This is a 2 hour event, but often we go overtime when the discussion and the great atmosphere it requires; or when we can't get enough of seeing familiar faces and perhaps some new ones.
    Feel free to stay as long or as short as you'd like.

    πŸ›‘Look out for topics posted in the discussion section and please place your own ideas, questions or concerns in the comments and please feel free to private message any of our co-organizers by clicking on their names.
    Bring your unique point of view and add to the discussion.

  • Word Confusion!

    Online event

    Have a word or phrase you have been wondering about? Some words and phrases come into use or change in their usage over time. Here is a groupthink gathering to discuss them. Some have heavy political meanings, and aren't always clear (and that is often the point). One example is the term "gaslighting". Does it have a new meaning in today's conversations?

    Or what is the difference between flammable and inflammable? It may not be what you've always thought.

    Perhaps you have a pet peeve word or phrase you really wish people would stop using! You have an audience here, and maybe others have a different view of it that may help relieve your angst about it. Come join the discussion on the second Saturday of each month.

  • Sunday Assembly at Reason Center

    1300 Ethan Way

    Sunday Assembly is held in the new Reason Center at 1300 Ethan Way, Suite 675. As always, families are welcome, and Becky Mark will entertain the children during the service. The doors open at 10:30 am and the program will begin at 11:00 am.

    There will be welcome greetings from old and new members, live music by Sunday Reason, a speaker, a reading, and a short feature called "Doing Your Best." All this will be followed by a potluck lunch! Please bring your favorite dish to share with the group.

  • Blasphemy Breakfast - Rocklin

    The Original Mels Diner

    Do you like to hang out with local like-minded people? Want a chance to get to know FANs in smaller groups? Or do you just get hungry on Sunday mornings? JOIN US at Mel's Diner for what we call our "Blasphemy Breakfast", not that we blaspheme that much, but atheist-related topics are known to come up at times.

    This is a great event to start with, if you haven't been to SacFAN Meetup events before. Also a great group of people to answer any atheist questions you might have, help you learn more about all the freethinking goings-on in the region, or help you any way we can. It's always a breath of fresh air to have brunch with like-minded friends. And we'll surely be friends once we've met you.

    I recommend their malts, omelets, biscuits n gravy, and grilled cheese. It's all good. And everyone's friendly here.

  • Coffee and Community on Zoom

    Online event

    Join us for casual conversation on Zoom for the colder months. It's always nice to welcome people who are new to our freethought community in this way so we can all get to know each other better. Topics range from current events to science and philosophy and on and on.

  • Photo Share at the Reason Center

    1300 Ethan Way

    Do you enjoy taking pictures when you are out walking, hiking, or traveling? Maybe you happened to catch something you found very interesting or mysterious, and that photo turned out to be unique. It might be of a landscape, a sculpture, a flower, a plant, or a tree. Perhaps you want to share a photo of certain people. You might have an interesting story behind your picture you like sharing with others.
    Let’s gather on the fourth Tuesday of each month for a fun evening of sharing our own favorite photos.

    We have a new 75 inch TV at our new center, so if you would like you may bring a flash drive with your photos.

    Talking about our photos in our previous meetings has led to some fun conversation, and we look forward to meeting more community members and sharing more photos and the stories that go with them.

    A few words of caution:
    Photos must be appropriate for general audience.
    Please do not share photos of individuals without their expressed permission.
