Welcome to Austin Secular Families!

Although we live in Austin, the coolest and most liberal place you can find in Texas, it somehow seems impossible to find other non-religious families. It's very awkward to bring up religion (or lack thereof) to people you've just met, but for me it's a very important aspect of meeting new people. Especially families my kids will see regularly. And that's what this group hopes to achieve: offering a place where families can get together without the preconceived notion that we all attend church on Sunday. 

We are under the umbrella of the Center for Inquiry, which is a really awesome group of people who do really awesome things - lecture series, discussion groups, book groups, going out for dinner, volunteering, etc. ...most of which don't typically happen at the playground on a Tuesday at 10 am. This is the place for families to meet and let our kids play. It won't be exactly the same as attending a discussion group, but maybe we can have an interesting conversation while pushing our kids on the swings. 

I'm working on getting the group going again and I'm excited to see all the new people joining! So, if you're interested in exploring the city, having regular play dates, mom's night out, monthly family get togethers, etc. - we're happy to have you!

I am thrilled that you have joined us and look forward to meeting all of you!
