**WE ARE FINALLY BACK TO IN-PERSON MEET-UPS!**

If you are comfortable now that Covid-19 restrictions have eased a bit…we invite you to join us once again for in-person Recovering from Religion Support Meetings that began in October, 2014 hosted at The Hill’s House in Hilliard, OH.

During the pandemic, we moved all meetings to Zoom Online, and due to the overwhelming attendance on-line [we had many join us from overseas as well!]…we will continue to host our Zoom Online Meet-Ups as well moving forward!

****Please watch the calendar for updates as we evolve into yet another “new normal.” We will continue to host every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month, and for now to keep the strong on-line community that we built as well as begin meeting in person again, we will host the following:**

* **2nd Thursday of Every Month**: Virtual Meet-ups via Zoom LInk
* **4th Thursday of Every Month:** In-Person @ The Hills House

**COVID-19 PROTOCOLS:** You are welcome to attend regardless of your vaccination status, ability or willingness to wear a mask, etc. Some attendees will wear masks and practice social distancing and some will choose not to. This will be left to your comfort level and discretion. We do ask that if you have any signs or symptoms of Covid-19 or any illness for that matter, to join us on-line that month.

***

The primary focus of a Recovering From Religion support group is to provide ongoing and personal support to individuals as they let go of their religious beliefs. This transitional period is an ongoing process that can result in a range of emotions, as well as a ripple effect of consequences throughout an individual’s life.

As such, the support meetings are safe and anonymous places to express these doubts, fears, and experiences without biased feedback or proselytizing.

We are here to help each other through this journey.

There is no cost to attend this support group but, if you feel so inclined, donations can be made at [www.recoveringfromreligion.org/donate](www.recoveringfromreligion.org/donate)

**If you find you need to talk with someone before the meeting date, RfR has a hotline and online chat for that express purpose.** **Call (844) 368-2848** to speak with someone. Go to [www.recoveringfromreligion.org ](www.recoveringfromreligion.org)and click on the green chat bubble in the lower left corner of the site to chat online.

**If you are in need of professional help, we can offer the Secular Therapy Project** to provide options to connect with a professional therapist. All therapists have been thoroughly vetted by our organization and offer only evidence-based and non-religious treatment. **Connect with them at [www.seculartherapy.org](www.seculartherapy.org).**

Like what RfR does? Why not volunteer! There are quite a few options. Head over to [www.recoveringfromreligion.org/volunteer ](www.recoveringfromreligion.org/volunteer)for more info.

Life After Belief Groups meet for support, encouragement and growth on the process of living life without supernatural belief. Our core concerns are Community, Charting a New Course, Compassion and Coming Out.

Many in this Secular Community Group are still in various stages of recovery from religion and are processing the feelings, thoughts and struggles of leaving a religious community behind. From those who are attending their first “secular/atheist” group ever and have fears and concerns of being “found out” – to those who have been on this journey for a longer time.

We have many who are still trying to figure out if they believe or not. You are welcome here without pressure or proselytizing.

**We are a Diverse and Inclusive Secular Community.**
Atheist, Humanist, Non-Religious, Agnostic, Free-Thinker, Anti-Theist, Spiritual But Not Religious, Naturist, Curious But Still with Some Faith…

LGBTQ+ – Republican – Democrat – Green – Libertarian – Independent – Don’t Like Any of ‘Em

Married – Single – Divorced – Poly-amorous

You get the picture…The point is: Whatever identifier you choose, Whatever stage you are in…You are welcome here!

We welcome those that can’t make it right on time…so even if an hour late or more, drop in and join us, you are never late to our meet-ups online or in-person.

The RSVP is just for head count, so please feel free to join us without an RSVP as well. ***We have new first-timers almost every meeting, so if you haven’t come yet…you will fit right in!***

We typically host 10-15 people on a group night.
