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.

It’s that time again. Time to hear those ‘bones moan. It’s the 41st year of the acclaimed Minneapolis Trombone Choir bringing their big sound to Judson. That great sound of more than 35 trombones, tubas and euphoniums playing the sweetest sounds of classical, big band, jazz and pop music in one of the Twin Cities’ best acoustical environments. Our region’s top professionals and amateurs set aside their various performance schedules to come together for a celebration of the trombone – and we get to listen in.

YouthLink is a nonprofit agency located in Minnesota and serving youth in the Minneapolis area. Last year, 2,291 homeless young people ages 16-23 turned to YouthLink as a safe and supportive refuge from life on the street. This number is up 27% from 2011. They might be here to find a meal and some clean clothes, take a shower or use the laundry facilities, or drop into the medical clinic. They might be here just because it’s a safe place to “be”.
YouthLink responds to the basic needs these youth have and offers a responsive community of excellence where they can choose to take positive steps in their lives toward empowerment and self-sufficiency. Youth find here the opportunity to work toward the End of Homelessness and the services and support they need on this journey. Please designate “Youthlink” on your check or on the offering envelope.
