Will someone de-throne our reigning King Plunger, Pastor Joel Benson or will his boldness and coldness reign supreme for another year?!
On December 2rd, 2017 a brave group of "Plungers" will take a chilly dip into Lower Lake to support the Annual Fund during Lutherlyn's the 2nd annual Pastoral Plunge!
We'll take lots of photos and videos to share the fun with everyone. We don't want anyone to miss seeing this spectacle! Feel free to take a look at our photos and videos from last year, it was great fun!
We'll serve hot beverages, s'mores, and have a roaring bonfire at Lower Lake Fire Circle to help keep our participants and spectators warm.
Please check back, we'll be adding more details soon!

Ways to Participate
There are several great ways to support this event. The first, for the brave-of-heart, is to become a "Plunger" and take to the water yourself. Plungers will work to acquire sponsorship from their family, friends, colleagues and parishioners. Plungers do not have to be pastors and can be anyone in generally good health*. A second option is to nominate a friend, colleague, or your church's pastor to participate and perhaps be their first sponsor. A third option is to sponsor one or more Plungers to help them reach their goal. Lastly, you can participate during the event as either a spectator or volunteer. We'll need help taking photos, passing out coffee, tending our bonfire and most importantly cheering on our Plungers as they take what will be a very cold swim!
* Though we expect this to be a very fun (likely hilarious!) event, we take the safety of our participants and guests seriously. Lifeguards and nurses will be present to ensure everyone remains healthy and safe.
