Urban Plunge

URBAN PLUNGE: Learn. Grow. Serve. Image of Minneapolis cityscape.
“I want to take what I saw and learn not to judge others before I know more about them” and “…this was a fun and important experience!” – recent Urban Plunge participants

Urban Plunge is an overnight, Augsburg student-led, faith-based experience for Middle and High School youth groups. Come to learn about and explore the gifts and challenges of our Cedar-Riverside neighborhood in Minneapolis by connecting with community members 
and using “The Sermon on the Mount” 
as a guiding message. Want to know more? Contact us or download info packet.
