A Welcoming Humanist Community

We are a community of caring hearts and thoughtful minds, working to create a better world.

Examining the issues of living

Moral education – learning to be a good person – is a lifelong task. We encourage personal growth through sensitivity to others, critical thinking and developing the courage to act on ethical values.

Deed Before Creed

Each of us has a moral responsibility to help reduce suffering, enhance the quality of life and to contribute to the well-being of society.

Out of caution for the spread of COVID-19, The Ethical Humanist Society will suspend in-person Sunday meetings.

We will be moving Sunday Meetings to online via Zoom. Zoom software will allow us to stay connected and participate with each other virtually.

Doors will open at 10:30. Meeting starts at 11:00.
