Secular Groups

First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis

The First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis was founded in 1881 and is a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Since 1916 when Rev. John Dietrich became the Senior Minister, the Society has been known as a leading force for Religious Humanism. A century later under our current Senior Minister, Rev. Dr. David Breeden, we more often speak of Congregational Humanism. We meet as a congregation on Sunday mornings at 10:30. (While the building itself is closed during the COVID pandemic, this is available as a live stream.) This Assembly normally features a talk by one of our ministers, a variety of music, readings, and community news.


HumanistsMN is a secular community that promotes ethical living, widespread human flourishing, and a healthy planet through its commitment to science, reason, compassion, and creativity. If you have thoughts about secular values, we have a place for you.

Minnesota Atheists

Minnesota Atheists is Minnesota's oldest and largest atheist organization. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, educational organization that seeks to promote the positive contributions of atheism to society and to maintain separation of state and church. Minnesota Atheists is dedicated to building a positive atheist community that actively promotes secular values through educational programs, social activities, and participation in public affairs.
