What we're about
Secular Humanist Families of North County
We are liberal secular humanists who would like to find a community of like-minded families interested in building strong friendships. We invite you to join us regardless of the label you choose - Agnostic, Atheist, Humanist - or no label at all. We simply want to build a community of families based on principles free from religion.
Our definition of 'family' is open-minded and inclusive: we welcome single parents, same-sex parents, grandparents, etc. We are parents with school-age children and while we are looking for like-minded friends for them as well, we welcome you if you have older children, teenagers or grandkids that you have at least part-time custody of and would bring to the activities.
As our group name states, we are looking to build community in North County. However, wherever you may live, we invite you to join our group, but most of us live in Escondido, San Marcos, Oceanside, Carlsbad, and Vista and will plan the majority of events and gatherings to take place in those areas. We have in mind picnics, play dates, excursions and outings, parents' nights out, Moms' nights out, Dads' nights out, and any other events that we and all of you create together.
Please provide us with your name, your partner's name (if applicable), children's names and ages, a complete family photo as your MAIN profile photo, what area you live in, events/outings/gatherings you would like, those you would really dislike, days and times you are absolutely NOT available for events, and a telephone number at which you can be reached (preferably a cell phone) in the rare event of last-minute changes/emergencies(this is a private group, so #'s are private). If you would like to, let us know whether you have memberships to museums, parks, etc. If enough members do, we can plan outings to those places. Lastly, please tell us something about yourself.
Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without super-naturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity. Learn more about Humanism: http://www.americanhumanist.org/Who_We_Are/About_Humanism
