Hey all!

 

I have a question.  I moved my family to a small, rural community in Texas about 3 years ago.  As I imagine is the case in all small towns, everybody knows everybody and most groups and activities seem to revolve around one of the various churches in the area.  Now, understand that not all activities are based around religion, but most social circles seem to grow out of who goes to what church, etc. 

 

My wife and I love the small-town atmosphere and the great school system our daughter attends, but we still feel like we are living on the outside.  Are there any particular groups, organizations we could join that would not make us feel like we were the odd-man-out?  Any other particular advice for fitting-in to the community without having to conform and live a lie by attending a church despite our non-belief (as has been suggested by my devout mother)?

There's a great school system in a small rural Texas town where most things revolve around religion?
