Serendipity Ministry Project 

 

In June 2020, the Serendipity Older Adult ministry wanted to send messages of love to the COVID nurses at Tennova hospital. They sent 100 cards of encouragement, each containing a $5 Starbucks gift card. The numbers of positive cases in our community continue to rise, and now Tennova has 150 nurses caring for COVID patients in three wards as well as the emergency room. Serendipity is working to encourage these healthcare workers again, but they need your help! Valentine cards have been ordered, but donations are needed to cover the $750 cost of purchasing Starbucks gift cards. Some groups within our church (as well as individuals) will be contributing. If you would like to donate, you may send your donations to Lacy Wilson. Please label all donations clearly so they can be applied to this Serendipity Ministry project.

 

Lifesaver Award

Clarksville Police Department's Sgt. Cory Coleman was presented the Lifesaver Award by Clarksville Police Department Chief Crockarell, for his actions during the early morning hours of July 5th, 2020.  Sgt. Coleman responded to the area of Mike's Bar and Grill for a "Shooting in Progress" call. Upon arrival at the chaotic scene, he quickly located the suspect who had sustained a gunshot wound to his right forearm. The suspect had fired into the crowd outside of the bar and an off-duty officer, from a neighboring agency, returned fire; striking the suspect in the arm. Sgt. Coleman applied a tourniquet to the suspect's arm and calmed him until medics with EMS arrived. He was transported to Tennova Medical Center and later to Skyline Medical Center because of the severity of his injuries.

Sgt. Coleman's actions bring great credit to himself, the Clarksville Police Department, and to the citizens of Clarksville.  Madison Street is proud of Cory, who attends our church with wife Liz and daughter Ember.  Congratulations to Sgt. Coleman!

Madison Street Preschool- 

School Age Program

Madison Street Preschool is offering an exciting new opportunity to help the families in our ministry during the pandemic.  With the announcement that CMCSS will be utilizing remote learning through January 25, we are pleased to offer a School Age Program during the preschool day on January 12/15 and January 19/21, 2021.  This program will only be available to the children of MSUMC staff, siblings of current preschool students, and church members.  Cost for this program will be $40 per week- payable via cash, check or Tuition Express for existing preschool families.  Students will be supervised by a teaching team in their own designated area of the church so that they have their own work areas that allow for social distancing as well as restrooms, areas to eat the lunch they bring from home, and play areas.  Students will bring their CMCSS provided remote schoolwork to be completed under the supervision of our staff, to include ZOOM meetings when required.  Our staff will also provide activities and crafts for students, as well as educational and technical support for remote classwork.  All current Madison Street Preschool COVID-19 protocols and procedures will be applied to this program (masks are required, temperature check upon entrance, etc.)  School age students will drop off and pick up at the primary Commerce Street entrance (the double glass doors under the portico) at 9:00AM and 2:00PM each preschool day.  Students will utilize the fellowship hall as their primary classroom, with areas for school work, lunch, and centers.  The playground and indoor play area will be utilized as weather permits.  We are excited to offer this program through the announced CMCSS remote timeframe, and if it is determined that CMCSS will extend their remote learning past the current expected return date of January 25 we will extend our program availability as well.  Click here to register online!
