Welcome atheists, agnostics, skeptics — you are all welcome here! At Seattle Atheist Church, we call ourselves an atheist church because you will never hear anything supernatural promoted from the podium.

Join us for our Sunday Service each and every week in Seattle.

    Pomodoro on Purpose - This link is good every Monday - Friday.
    Monday September 21 2020 at Online event

    Pomodoro is a technique where you schedule work on a project in alternating blocks of work and rest. You may work 25 minutes and take a 5 minute break - or work an hour and take a 30 minute break.

    We will meet at 10:00 am for 10 minutes to tell each other what we will work on during the session.

    10:10 - 11:45 is silent working side by side on Zoom.

    We will meet again at 11:45 to discuss how the work session went.

    What kinds of things do people do? Study for school, learn to code, write a book, paint a picture, make jewelry, clean a room, organize paperwork.

    Accountability Circle
    Tuesday September 22 2020 at Online event

    *Accountability Circle will go back to meeting on Tuesday nights.

    Choose 1 or 2 goals that are meaningful to you and are specific, measurable, and time-boxed. Usually, you are committing to taking action at least five times a week. Join the Zoom call to share a progress report e.g. "I said I would do x, and I did x 4/5 days last week."

    Ask yourself if you really want to be in an accountability circle. If you want to be in Accountability Circle- join. If you'd rather do something else- then do something else. It's that simple.

    1. Please do not come late.
    2 Plan to stay until 7:30 pm.
    3. If you commit to taking an action - then do it.
    4. Please don't waste time with reasons why you didn't.
    5. If you have made no progress in 30 days, you will be asked to leave the group.

    February 23, 2021 is six months from the time these new rules are posted. Think in terms of a measurable goal- where you can make significant progress in six months. That can be anything from increasing the number of push-ups you can do - to writing a novel.

    Reading Group: Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High
    Wednesday September 23 2020 at Online event

    Interpersonal communication is a key part of living the good life and being our best selves, not only for our own good but also for the good of those around us. It's also an important skill for having tough but necessary discussions about racism and other kinds of problematic behaviors and attitudes. Let's level up that skill by reading and discussing a book that we've mentioned a lot here at the Seattle Atheist Church: "Crucial Conversations" by Patterson, Grenny, McMillan, and Switzler.

    Pick up a copy at your local bookstore or on Amazon:
    https://smile.amazon.com/Crucial-Conversations-Talking-Stakes-Second/dp/0071771328/

    The average length of a chapter is just over 19 pages, with the longest one being 30 pages. Let's start by committing to read ~30 pages per week, and re-assess as we progress.

    This upcoming week's reading: Chapter 1, titled "What's a Crucial Conversation? And Who Cares?", and, optionally, the Forward to the 2nd Edition, the Forward to the 1st Edition, and the Preface, which are all really short. (This section will be updated each week, so check back if you need to.)

    This is an online event hosted on Zoom. You can register here:
