What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Secular Hub members are invited to hang out and watch a movie on our BIG screen at the Secular Hub on Thursday nights! Drinks, snacks, and popcorn will be available for sale. Doors will be open at 6:30pm and the movie will begin at 7:00pm. Thirteen-year-old Kayla (Elsie Fisher) endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the last week of middle school--the end of her thus far disastrous eighth grade year--before she begins high school. Nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Comedy at the Golden Globes. Winner of the Best First Screenplay Award at the Film Independent Spirit Awards. Winner of a WGA Award for Best Original Screenplay. This is a recurring weekly event, subject to other secular events that require the Secular Hub space. We'll make sure to update the meetup each week with the movie selection and notify when they are cancelled. Note: Secular Hub meetings such as movie night are open only to dues paying members of the Secular Hub. Sign up on line at http://www.secularhub.org/membership-2/ or in person at the Hub.
It's baseball season!! WHOOP WHOOP!! Ok, I honestly don't know much about baseball....but, I know hot dogs and crackerjacks! Come down to the Hub for good food, conversations, games, and community. I, as usual, will be providing a main dish and other goodies but, please bring something to share if you can! Hope to see you there! -Ruth
The Pine Valley Loop dips into the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area in Pike National Forest. This loop trail feels like an escape. Once back in the ranch, there are unique, wide open views created by an old wildfire. Hike through "fields" which were recently forest. Pine Valley Ranch Park is a Jefferson County Open Space, and charges no fees to enter or park (try to carpool anyway). Whether you're looking to socialize, soak in the views and appreciate nature, or get in a workout, this'll be a good hike. And it'll be a good opportunity to meet like-minded folks, while experiencing some of what Colorado has to offer. Lunch: If we start hiking at 9 am, we’ll still be hiking at noon. Bring a lunch, and we’ll picnic somewhere along the trail. -- Hike Summary -- Distance: 7.9 miles Rating/Description: Moderate (if you're already comfortable with hikes this distance). The first and last ¾ mile of trail is steep, but the park built steps into the side of the mountain. The rest of the trail is not terribly steep. The trail is easy to follow, but you’ll want to know which way to turn at the three junctions encountered during this loop. There are a couple of streams that you’ll need to step across. Elevation Profile: starts at 6760 ft; gains 1130 ft (2930 ft if you count all the climbs) Parking: there is lots of free parking; carpooling recommended Facilities: vault toilets Fur Kids: dogs are allowed, but must be leashed and picked up after Entry Fees: $0.00 Lunch on trail, pack a lunch! -- Route -- If you arrive late and want to try to catch up, here is the route: Take Parkview Trail away from the parking lots (south). Make a left on Strawberry Jack Trail. Make a right onto Skipper Trail. Make a right onto Buck Gulch Trail, which takes you back to the parking lot. -- Reminders -- SAFETY FIRST… I have no medical provisions or training. You are hiking at your own risk. We may not have cell service out here, so if in doubt, play it safe. - Carry and drink plenty of water! - Sunscreen and bug spray are advised. - A hat, sunglasses, and supportive footwear are also advised. - We may hike in some rain. Be prepared. Park Information: https://www.jeffco.us/1428/Pine-Valley-Ranch-Park
A 12-Step support group meeting for those struggling with religious beliefs, the idea of a god, or of a higher power someplace "out there" expressed in most AA meetings. Our goal is to recover a healthy, non-theistic understanding of the 12-Step process, enabling the individual to find the power for change within himself or herself. Since this is an anonymous group, actual attendance is never listed, Meetings average 20 to 30 every Monday and Saturday. Our meetings are open to anyone interested in how the 12 Steps can work for anyone, alcoholic or not, pretending nothing.
