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 October

One of the special blessings about worshiping on Sunday mornings at Judson is that it is a unique combination of the familiar and the extraordinary.  

There is a comfortable pattern of the familiar to our Sunday worship. From the times of silence and prayer to the moments of lightness and laughter. From the beauty of our choir’s anthems to the raising of our voices together in congregational song. From the giving of our offerings to the updates of the work of our church. From lessons during time with children to inspiration in sermons. From scripture readings to personal reflections of people we love. From the welcome which brings us together to the benediction which challenges and blesses us. 

Combined with the familiar is the novelty of each Sunday’s worship. October worship promises to refresh and stimulate us. We will have some excerpts from reflective writings by Judson folk during the month. On the second Sunday, we will be joined by Libby Turner and her songs of justice. The month will end with Reformation Sunday and a Service of Brokenness. There are copies of the list in the back of the sanctuary. There is also a list of resources on the website. Brokenness

Please inform your pets that the Blessing of the Animals will be next spring (April 12) rather than this fall. If any animals need a blessing before then, contact Travis.


Mission of the Month for October

Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists

The Mission of the Month for October is the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists (AWAB).  AWAB formed in 1993 to support the full inclusion of LGBTQ people in the life and ministry of the church.  Judson has been a member of AWAB for many years largely through individual donations.  AWAB has supported and will continue to support welcoming and affirming congregations and individuals seeking inclusion for all regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.  Please consider a donation to AWAB this month.  For more information about AWAB, see their website:
