Bring Your Hopes.
Bring Your Doubts.
Feed Your Soul.

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

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.)

Worship in September

September is a month of regathering at Judson. Summer travels are coming to an end. Students and teachers are back in school. Judson's children and youth and adult forum programs are back in full swing. Our choir is back from its hiatus. And--though summer worship at Judson has been full of blessings--there is a feeling of greater fullness in our September worship.

And it will be full. On the Sunday before Labor Day, we will reflect on work and spirituality, considering how those are connected. Rally Sunday--always an exciting and joyful time--will be the second week. On the third Sunday, Pastor Norvell presents "Considering Job 1--Sermon Series on Job"; come and find out if that means "Job" with a long "o" (like the Biblical character) or "Job" with a short "o" (like our work). We really get into our YEAR OF DISCOVERING this month.

Worship at Judson is many things: inspirational; thought-provoking; fun; meditative; worshipful. It is also educational. For instance, before coming to Judson, I had never heard of "Michaelmas." I'm still not sure I understand it. It has something to do with the archangel Michael, the coming of autumn, daisies, and special bread. On this month's  fourth Sunday, our worship will include Judson's version of the festival of Michaelmas.
