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.

Worship in October
The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ?
1 Corinthians 10:16 NRSV
On Sunday, October 1, we at Judson will share in the global body of Christ by breaking bread with our brothers and sisters in congregations around the world in observance of World Communion Sunday. To celebrate the world-wide diversity of Christian traditions, we will be offering breads from different cultures as part of our own communion service.
On October 29, we observe Reformation Sunday. This year marks the 500-year anniversary of Martin Luther posting his 95 theses on the door of Wittenberg Castle Church. Luther loved his church, and was hoping his theses would spark discussion and renewal within his community. Five hundred years later, our intent at Judson Church is not so far different: discussion and renewal through our shared worship and study experiences.
As October brings vibrant changes to the trees in our communities, we look forward to sharing and growing in faith through opportunities for vibrant worship and fellowship at Judson. Please join us in October!
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.
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.)
