RIGBY, Idaho -

Sunday afternoon a Rigby pastor kissed a pig on the snout in front of his congregation.

Dave Schilling, pastor of Crown of Life Lutheran Church, promised to kiss a pig if the congregation raised enough money to purchase a new stair lift chair.

They successfully raised $5,000 by the Dec. 1 deadline, so the pastor had no choice but to follow through with his promise.

“It was a way that I could support our commitment as a congregation to really doing something that we really needed. We needed that stair chair in order to have access to our basement, so these are the things that pastors do for a flock,” said Schilling.
