In our contemporary society, where questioning the very fabric of reality becomes a common endeavor, understanding the complexities of faith and doubt is more relevant than ever. Dr. AJ Swoboda, an author and seasoned pastor from the vibrant cities of Eugene & Portland, OR—known hubs of relativistic humanism—brings a wealth of experience in guiding young individuals through the labyrinth of their spiritual uncertainties. Through his insightful book, Dr. Swoboda offers a lifeline to those wrestling with the faith of their upbringing and provides invaluable support for those accompanying them on this journey.

Join us March 23rd, from 9am – 4pm in the sanctuary for a transformative day-long seminar where Dr. Swoboda will delve deep into the heart of our doubts, offering teachings and guidance to navigate these challenging waters. This seminar promises to be an enlightening experience, revealing that doubt is not a faith-terminator but a crucial aspect of our spiritual growth. Participants will leave feeling rejuvenated, with a renewed perspective on the role of doubt in their faith journey.

Lunch will be provided.
