Central Minnesota Freethinkers is a nonprofit charitable, social, and educational organization created to foster a community of reason. We are atheists, agnostics, humanists, secularists, and freethinkers in and around St. Cloud. We live our lives happily free of dogma and the constraints of religion. Whether you live close by or far away, whether you come regularly or just once in a while, we look forward to seeing you.

We get together for coffee on the first Sunday morning of each month, from 10 o'clock until noon. We discuss current and local events, books, sometimes watch and discuss short videos, and always catch up with each other. Please join us at the Good Earth Co-op in St. Cloud's Centennial Plaza. (map)

Freethinkers Night Out happens the second Tuesday after each coffee social. Each month we meet at a different restaurant in the St. Cloud area. Join us for an evening of freethinking conversation, dinner if you like, and drinks. Watch the events calendar for location.

Join our Meetup group for email reminders of these and other events.

Please join us on the third Sunday morning of each month to enjoy a secular-themed movie. We’ll watch a variety of educational and entertaining videos from 9:30am to noon at Good Earth Food Co-op in St. Cloud Centennial Plaza. (map) See our events calendar or Meetup for monthly details.

We meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month (unless conflicts require rescheduling) to discuss a book we have selected from one of our rotating categories:

  • Religion / atheism / humanism
  • Science / philosophy
  • Contemporary issues
  • Literature / fiction 
  • History / biography

The books can be read and discussed in one meeting (one month) or two meetings (two months) at most. Watch the Meetup page and this site for upcoming titles, locations (generally Dunn Brothers in Coborn’s on Cooper Ave. or the St. Cloud Public library), and times (generally 6:00 or 6:30 pm). 

General membership meetings are held annually and as needed at locations to be announced. We also host guest speakers on a range of interesting topics. In June and December we get together around the Solstices for a potluck celebration.

Join our Meetup group or watch the events calendar for time and location of all events.

Central Minnesota Freethinkers doesn't have an office or a postal address.
