Bring Your Hopes.
Bring Your Doubts.
Feed Your Soul.

Do you know us? We are seekers, believers, doubters, and dreamers who gather each Sunday at the corner of 41st and Harriet. We are married, partnered, single, gay and straight; we are families at all ages and stages of life. We are theologically progressive and politically diverse - and we welcome all. We are from Lutheran, Catholic, Baptist, Unitarian and many other faith traditions - and from no tradition. We are Judson Memorial Baptist Church. We strive to learn about and live the love of God.  We invite you to join us any Sunday morning

  We Recognize Our Graduating Seniors on Sunday    Before the school year comes to a close, we want to offer hearty “Congratulations!” to each of our graduates: Griffin Buck – son of Jenny & David Buck, Ben Gustafson - son of Lisa & Clay Gustafson, and Laura Lehman - daughter of Dawn Martin & Greg Lehman, are graduating from high school; Emily Gustafson, daughter of Lisa & Clay Gustafson, and Nika Hoefle, daughter of Trish Magal & Joel Hoefle, will graduate from college. Please join us as we acknowledge their achievement and this life transition during the service, and for the reception that follows in the Ann Judson Room.  

Judson’s Mission: We are a spiritually grounded community united in providing sanctuary for all who enter. We seek to open ourselves to the healing and the transforming power of God’s love as we seek to follow the life of Jesus: honoring our deepest differences, seeking justice and mercy, discovering and implementing our gifts, and nurturing our children.

Faith Formation

 We're excited to have children and youth gathering once again in their small groups during 2nd Hour - Preschoolers and K upstairs in the Preschool Room; 1-4th graders downstairs in the Rainbow Room; and 6-11th grade-guys upstairs in the Providence Room.


Worship and Wonder

Worship and Wonder during the service after Time with Children. (Worship and Wonder: most 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month.)


Worship in April

The Worship Committee hopes that the many worship experiences provided in the last couple months enriched your soul and brought you to a deeper understanding of your own journey. We work hard to ensure that Sunday worship includes variety, inclusivity, and opportunities for meaningful connection. We are also committed to inviting as many people as we can to actively participate in making Worship happen each Sunday.

The Worship Committee will begin looking ahead to plan and implement more creative worship. On April 16, the Faith and Spirit Cluster of Committees will meet to coordinate calendars as we look ahead to the 2016-17 ministry year. We welcome feedback concerning our efforts to make our worship services inclusive to all. We will also work to repair or replace lectern banners and wall banners. If you have enjoyed worship at Judson and would like to be part of the Worship Committee, we more than welcome new ideas and energy! Feel free to contact any of the members to see how you can be involved: Déadra Moore, Barbara York, Wayne Urbaniak, Sarah Lovat, Gayle Foster Lewis, Polly Schrom and Keith Ford.

The month of April continues to be the “Easter Season.” On April 3, we welcome Rev. Dr. Molly T. Marshall, president of Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, KS and the first woman to head a Baptist seminary or divinity school in North America. She is also Professor of Theology, Worship, and Spiritual Formation at CBTS. At Second Hour that day, we will hear from Rev. Dr. Brent Walker, Executive Director of the Baptist Joint Committee. Dr. Walker is both a member of the Supreme Court Bar and an ordained minister. He leads the organization as it upholds the historic Baptist principle of religious liberty, defending the free exercise of religion and protecting against its establishment by government.
