This group is for Ex/Post Mormons in the general Seattle area (including the Eastside, Southsound, Northend and beyond)
Are you a former 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-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 have a variety of get-togethers, including potlucks, coffee meetups, comedy clubs, concerts, family picnics, wine tastings, hikes, game nights, barbecues, house parties and more! All non-believers are welcome and encouraged to share their personal experiences of being a member of the Mormon 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.
We have a secret group on Facebook as well! If you would like to join that group, message Sam or Jarrod (the organizers).
Important Note : While Ex/Post-Mormons are welcome, our group isn't for everyone.
"Mormon" in this context applies to any of the religions that were off shoots from Joseph Smith - exRLDS, exFLDS, and other ex's from a JS-based religion are welcome, though most of our members are ex's from the Brighamite (LDS) branch.
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.
