What to expect

What are Sundays like?

Are you curious what you might expect when attending a Humanist gathering?The centerpiece of our shared life is our Sunday Assembly, which takes place at 10:30 a.m. This is available in person in our Upper Assembly Hall or streaming online via our website. During our hour together, we listen to and participate in music from a variety of traditions; we hear an enlightening talk by a minister or guest speaker; we laugh together, and explore what it means to be human. Afterward, we gather for conversation and coffee. We also offer learning, justice, and social events at other times.

What should I wear?

Our members and friends dress in a manner that is casual and comfortable for them. Feel free to wear anything from blue jeans to ball gowns.

Who could I talk to?

We’ll do our best to identify you as a visitor. Some visitors are hungry to talk, while others want to be left alone (this is Minnesota).

  • Greeters are on duty before the Assembly both at the Mt. Curve and the Groveland Terrace entrances, but the entire congregation is on the “welcome team,” so just ask.
  • Join us downstairs after Assembly for coffee and conversation. 
  • Stop by the Welcome Table in the social hall to inquire about the Society and upcoming events and programs.
  • Members of the program staff are available until noon most Sundays and look forward to meeting you.
