Give to Lincoln Day

Lincoln Atheists is part of the Give to Lincoln Day annual fundraiser. Donations from now till May 26th will help Lincoln Atheists build a positive community for non-believers. Lincoln Community Foundation will match a percentage (probably around 10%) of money raised. Every bit helps.

Billboard Submission

Lincoln Atheists is calling on all good standing members for idea submissions for a billboard we are going to fund later this summer. You can submit any idea as long as you are a member in good standing and will also to have an opportunity to vote on which idea(s) LA will select. Keep in mind brevity and nothing outwardly offensive-submissions can be as simple as slogan ideas or a full PDF with artwork. Be creative, be thought provoking, and be mindful of LA's role in the community.

Lincoln Atheists Spring Picnic

It has been something the Activities Committee wanted to do for a while. A event for everyone to get together, enjoy the nice weather, and bond with other non-believers. On May 14th Lincoln Atheists has the shelter at Tierra Park (south of 27th and Hwy 2) reserved. Tierra Park has many facilities for everyone to enjoy. Playground, basketball and tennis court, skate park, bike trail, and disc golf course. So bring the family and join us 11 am at Tierra Park.
*Bring your own picnic. Food will not be provided.

6 Months Newsletter

Lincoln Atheists started sending newsletters 6 months ago. While it hasn't always been consistent the feedback has been positive. Starting the newsletter we grouped all new members into the monthly subscription. Lincoln Atheists offers Biannual and Annual subscriptions for those which would prefer fewer newsletters. Surprisingly everyone has chosen to stay with the monthly subscription. Even non-members have signed up to receive newsletters.

Since November, we have grown and done some great stuff moving forward in growing Lincoln Atheists.
  • Secular Parenting of Lincoln formed providing child-focused events to attend with your children and support for parents raising children in a believer-centric world.
  • Our Fall and Spring roadside cleanup have become more and more efficient with the help of more volunteers. There is even talk about starting later because we are finishing before Raymono's is open for lunch.
  • Reason this Season was a big success. Spectators were very receptive with many positive things to say.  Planning for this season has started. If you are interested in helping contact the education committee
  • Elections occurred in December with Susan Soriente, Rachel Danay, and Rachele Walter joining the Board of Directors. Follow this link if you would like to view the results. 
  • Community Service Committee collected 60 pkgs of socks and 26 pkgs of underwear for their Sock It to Winter close drive in December to help the City Mission.
