Worship and Music

Judson is known for powerful services in our beautiful 100-year-old sanctuary.  Sunday worship service begins at 9:30.  The worship service typically features a thoughtful sermon from our minister, beautiful music from our choir or special guests, Time with Children, and a personal reflection from one of our members or friends.

Fellowship & Refreshments at 10:30 am in the Ann Judson room. Children and Adult education will start at 11:00 am and go until 12 pm.

Worship in January

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

(Matthew 2:11)

The magi went on a pilgrimage:  “…we have seen his star in the east and are come to worship him.” Packing must have been interesting:  go light on provisions, so that there is room for gifts. How about some gold? And frankincense? And myrrh? The magi, going on a pilgrimage to God knows where.

Sometimes everything comes together. It did for the magi: they heard a message, saw a star, packed, and took off—physically and spiritually, individually and together.

Sometimes everything comes together. For us at Judson, it’s this January—the start of a pilgrimage, within the context of a sabbatical. Our worship in January starts with Epiphany, with a theme of pilgrimage, wise folk winding their way through the congregation. There are reflections about pilgrimage. Individually and together as a church, we move. There is adventure and risk and joy in a pilgrimage. We’ll see where it takes us, individually and as a church: a pilgrimage to God knows where.

Maybe there were other magi. Maybe they saw the star, but were too busy or tired or afraid; for whatever reason, they didn’t make the pilgrimage. Maybe there were friends and neighbors who saw the star, but were waiting to be invited or encouraged; for whatever reason, they didn’t make the pilgrimage.

We will. We will follow the star.  It will be profound. Join us for worship—for pilgrimage—in January. We will be joyful. We will worship together.
