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

LAUNCH MONTHLY CALENDAR
Current month's bulletins:
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.
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.)
Judson Worship in February
In the context of the Church Worship calendar, the time when Worship is not focused on a holiday or event is called “Ordinary Time.” The longest ordinary time is between Easter and Advent. During February, we are again in an “ordinary” season between Epiphany and Lent. As we look ahead at what is in store, we notice that Worship at Judson is anything but ordinary! A lot is happening in four short weeks. We welcome female voices to the pulpit on February 5 and 19th. Jazz Sunday is February 12 and will possibly feature Irv Williams who has been performing Jazz for nine decades! Don’t miss the Youth Pancake Breakfast on February 26th. We’ll gather that day in the Fellowship Hall for Breakfast and Blessings and hear from our youth about their plans for the summer mission trip! Don’t miss these extra-ordinary opportunities!
Please also note: The Worship Committee has been concerned for issues of inclusion in our Worship services. In that vein, another lectern has been added on the floor level near the right-side lectern. This will remain in place and will be used regularly so that accommodation is already available for those who find the steps to the lecterns difficult. We want to make it possible for all voices to be heard!
