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

Welcome to Judson

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.

 Worship in April
For God so loved the world…

During the first week of April we move from Maundy Thursday to Good Friday to the joy of Easter Sunday morning. An emotional and deeply moving few days in the life of the church. Please plan to join us as we experience the emotions as a community. The Easter season brings promises of hope, renewal and new life. Hallelujah!

April Mission of the Month is Thailand
The Shapan Boarder Orphanage
The Shapan Boarder Orphanage is located in Mai Ja Yang, a border town between Myanmar and China. It is about 60 miles away from Shwili in China. Shapan Boarder Orphanage opened in 2007. The objective of the center is to enhance the holistic development of the orphans who end up in Mai Jai Yang from different parts of Kachin State. Though the community has never had adequate facilities and support for these children, there was no other choice but to open a center like this and begin caring for these many children. We would like to invite you to share your blessings by including your thoughts, prayers and any financial support for this much needed group.  Donations can be made out to “Judson Church” where they will be routed to the Orphanage.  Please put Shapan Orphanage Project in your memo line. Last year Joel reports that they supported the Orphanage on the China border (about 1200 per month for 12 months). We just picked up a village after school English program that Judson Money could participate in. And of course, Anna’s Program – Which is the neighborhood program for the kids at risk in the inner city here.
