About Madison Street

About Us

For more than one hundred years, Madison Street United Methodist Church has been woven into the fabric of the Clarksville community. It has witnessed births, baptisms, marriages, and funerals. It has experienced physical rebuilding following a devastating tornado in 1999 that destroyed the original historic church facility. It has experienced leadership changes, membership growth, and societal shifts and still today remains faithful to its calling to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Madison Street United Methodist Church is:


We commit to Jesus’ example of inclusive love, care, and intentional hospitality with persons of every race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, marital status, faith story, physical or mental ability, economic status, or political perspective. We respect our diversity of opinion and expressions of faith. Therefore, as God loves us, so let us love one another and serve in the name of Christ. All persons may receive Holy Communion and are eligible to be baptized and become members of the church. 


Our faith is guided by Scripture, tradition, reason, and experience. Of paramount importance, however, is Scripture as the witness of God’s creating, redeeming, and sustaining relationship with God’s people.


As part of The United Methodist Church, Madison Street has a Wesleyan heritage, and as such, places an emphasis on mind and heart and putting faith and love into practice.


For more than 100 years, Madison Street has been concerned for God’s children everywhere—the poor, the orphaned, the aging, the sick, the oppressed, and the imprisoned.


Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. In uncomplicated terms, this means we strive to nurture followers of Christ who then reach out and teach others about the love and grace of Jesus Christ.

Welcome to Madison Street!

In the United Methodist Church, there are many types of services designed for corporate worship in the life of a congregation. Couples who desire to express their love and commitment to each other through worship may do so by celebrating the Service of Christian Marriage. At MSUMC, wedding services will be conducted using the Order for the Service of Marriage, as outlined in the United Methodist Book of Worship. Contained in a service of marriage may be prayer, meditation, the singing of Christian hymns, instrumental/vocal service music, the reading of scripture, proclamation of the Word, and the use of Christian symbols.



The relationship between a pastor and his or her parishioners is one of personal significance. Wedding couples should expect the service officiant to be the clergy by whom they have been pastored. A couples’ desire to include a co-officiant may be considered only in consultation with the MSUMC clergy or wedding coordinator.



The first step in scheduling a wedding service at Madison Street United Methodist Church is to contact the MSUMC Wedding Coordinator. Upon initial contact with the MSUMC Wedding Coordinator, a date for use of the church facilities can be tentatively reserved. Once the non-refundable deposit has been made, the wedding date will be officially scheduled on the church calendar. This should be done at least 30 days, but not more than 12 months, prior to the wedding.


Due to the church’s worship schedule during certain liturgical seasons, reservations for weddings may not be considered. Those possible instances will be at the discretion of the pastor(s). If wedding services are considered in those instances, the options for wedding flowers/decorations may be limited. Those times could include, but are not limited to, Holy Week (the weekend of Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday), the seasons of Advent and Christmas (beginning with Thanksgiving and lasting through Epiphany), and the weekend of the Tennessee Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.


You will also need to schedule meetings with the other church staff who will be leading the wedding service, and the church Wedding Coordinator  will assist you with timing and contact information for these meetings.



Member deposits are $250.

District member deposits are $500.
