Madison Township Churches

Organized 1840

Hoagland Methodist Church

Hoagland Road

Organized in 1890. Originally the members attended the Methodist church in Middletown, Marion Twp. As the Hoagland community grew, they thought it desirable to build a church in Hoagland. The first structure was a white wooden frame building, which served the congregation until 1934 when it was completely destroyed by fire. In 1934 a new stone block church was completed at the same location. In 1995 the Hoagland United Methodist Church merged with the Poe United Methodist Church of Marion Township to form Hope United Methodist Church (see Marion Township).
