Oh how easy it is to get lost! With our cell phones & tablets, our 24-hr news cycles, there’s virtually no moment of peace & quiet. That’s where New Life UMC worship comes in. We provide a holy place of respite in the tumult of life. So come, put aside the cares of the week and find yourself in the presence of God.
New Life UMC is located at the crossroads of Ellistown Road & MIllertown Pike in east Knox County Tennessee in the Arminda Community. At our main campus, we have 2 main buildings, a pavilion/stage and an acre prayer garden. We have Dinner Church at East Knox Elementary during the school season. We have a third campus at our Hopewell UMC.
New Life UMC began at this location on Millertown Pike as Bethlehem Methodist Church over a hundred years ago. A traditional community church serving east Knox County.
In 1997, Bethlehem UMC found a "new life" as Holston Chapel UMC merged with them to become one. We choose the name New Life to reflect this new direction.
In 2019, our sister church Hopewell UMC (also over a hundred years old) merged with New Life UMC to begin a stronger and more exciting future.
Today, New Life is at the heart of a growing and thriving community in east Knox. Come visit us this Sunday and share the warmth & joy of our congregation.
You are welcome to wear what feels comfortable for you. Jeans, shorts, or any casual wear is fine. If you feel more comfortable in a dress and heels or suit and tie, that is fine too! Come as you are and you will fit right in.
Our Sunday School meets during the 9:30 am hour in classrooms throughout the church. We have something for everyone in the family: children, youth, and adults. Each class offers an opportunity to strengthen your faith through fellowship and dialogue with other Christians.
Yes! Nursery care for infants and toddlers up to three years old is offered during Sunday School and all worship services. For children in preschool, we have Sunday School and Bible class at 9:30 am. Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade enjoy Sunday School at 9:30 am and Children’s Church is offered during worship. Of course, your children are always welcome to join you for worship in the sanctuary if you like. Additionally, we have an overflow room for your convenience.
Coffee and tea are available before and after the 9:30 am Sunday School and before the 10:30 am worship service in the lobby.
