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 November

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

(I Thessalonians 5:18, New Revised Standard Version)

November is a month of opportunity…starting with an extra hour (time change November 4) and ending with a holiday period of thanksgiving. Notice that the Thessalonians verse says: to give thanks IN all circumstances, not FOR all circumstances. Some circumstances are difficult, challenging, even tragic—certainly not situations for which to be thankful. The Bible only has a few verses that clearly state “the will of God.” This is one of them: to give thanks in all circumstances. 

So all of us are invited; no matter what our circumstances, to join together in worship this month. November is a month which holds a blessing for us. Together we can experience its joy, sorrow, hope, despair, its comfort, and thanksgiving.5

November is a month of opportunity…

November is an opportunity for thanksgiving. For food—when 13% of the world is hungry. For shelter; with conveniences that would be the envy of royalty in any other age. For travel—the likes of which were unimaginable 100 years ago. For ease of communication; at our fingertips.  For cars—which start 99.5% of the time. For people, who are civil (often even kind) 93% of the time.

November is an opportunity for appreciation. An opportunity to appreciate Pastor Travis Norvell; he’ll be preaching every Sunday in November. November is an opportunity to sprinkle our appreciation throughout our congregation, expressing thanks for those whose spiritual lives intersect with ours, those on spiritual journeys with us.

November is an opportunity to worship together. To smile, to shake hands, to hug. To talk and pray. To listen and reflect. To sing and meditate. To eat and drink. To laugh and cry. To worry and relax. To thank God for our sacred moments together.
