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 May

When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place.And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit…  Acts 2:1-4a

Did you know the Easter Season continues for the six Sundays following Easter until Pentecost Sunday which this year is May 24? Pentecost marks the experience of God’s Spirit empowering God’s people. The Judson community will celebrate by bringing some “spirit” to the neighborhood a week before Pentecost with the Street Fest. Even with the Street Fest happening, we will gather for a shortened, yet meaningful, church service at our usual time of 9:30 am on that day.

May also marks the end of Judson’s ministry and fiscal year, bringing a time to reflect upon the year before. The Worship Committee hopes that each and every one of you can think back to many moving moments in our worship services. The Worship Committee works very intentionally to maintain a balance of traditional elements – those things that Judson worshipers come to expect as ritual and routine, as well as offering these in a variety of ways in order to keep our worship together fresh, meaningful, and inspirational.

The Worship Committee would love to hear what you have appreciated about Judson worship, as well as any ideas or experiences you would like to have. Email your thoughts to Déadra at

May Mission of the Month is “The Aliveness Project”
 The Aliveness Project serves people affected by HIV/AIDS. They serve meals, operate a food shelf and provide multiple services for individuals and families that must bear the burden of this devastating disease. You may recall that for many years, Judson youth – in conjunction with TRUST Youth – take part in the Aliveness Project’s Holiday Baskets program in which the youth buy and wrap gifts for those affected by HIV/AIDS. For more information about the Aliveness Project’s programs and services, please check their website at
