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

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 February

I died for you - a desperate extravagance, even for me.

If you can't be merciful, at least, be bold.

from “At the Arraignment” by Debra Spencer

Worship at Judson in February starts out with a bang, “Jazz Sunday”, and leads us into Lent, a time of reflection and preparation. Jazz Sunday  will feature our very own Jim ten Bensel, Scott and Joshua Johnson, Scott Simpson, Javier Santigo and Ollie Lyle on Sunday, February 7. Two weeks later, on the 21st, we participate in a pulpit exchange with University Baptist Church as we welcome our good friend Rev. Doug Donley while Pastor Travis preaches at UBC. Along with Pastor Donley, we will enjoy the beauty of the UBC handbell choir.

Wednesdays during Lent offer additional opportunities for worship. February 10th is the Ash Wednesday service and will feature a half hour service at 6:30 pm. February 17th and 24th and into March we will again hold the quietly contemplative Taize services followed by refreshments in the Ann Judson Room. If you have not participated in our Taize services, we invite you to join us for the services modeled after the famous services of the French monastic community.

Please join us as we prepare ourselves for Holy Week.
