Judson Worship in June

Summertime is always the best of what might be. Charles Bowden

As we look forward to glorious Minnesota summer days, we are blessed by the time we spend together as the Judson community. We will begin the month of June by sharing communion together and celebrating Pentecost, the fiftieth day after Easter Sunday. Throughout the month we will experience inspiration, quiet reflection, conversation, laughter, and fellowship.

John De Haan and the choir take the summer off and instead we enjoy the talents of our congregation and friends. If you have a musical talent you can contribute to our service, please look for the signup sheet at the back of the sanctuary. Thank you in advance! Also, if your floral gardens are in full bloom, please consider sharing some of the beauty for our altar. Barbara York, who creates our altar decorations, would love to use your flowers. Just let her know ( and she’ll arrange to stop by and pick them.  

Mary Oliver concludes her “The Summer Day” poem with this question: Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? You may find some possibilities at Judson – join us!


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.)

 Weddings at Judson

We at Judson Church celebrate that Love is now the Law in Minnesota. We worked hard to make marriage equality a reality. If you are a same sex couple looking for a welcoming & affirming church to host and celebrate your wedding then we are here to serve. Please go over our wedding brochure and then set up a meeting to speak with our Pastor, The Rev. G. Travis Norvell.
