Who We Are
Don't believe in God? You are not alone! The Humanist Community of Central Ohio is a community which values people, emphasizes reason and focuses on this world. Our group meets multiple times a month for socials, book club meetings, program meetings, and service events. In the summer we host a picnic, in February we celebrate Darwin Day, and in December we throw a Solstice party.
We are an all-volunteer organization. If you like what you see, please consider joining today!
