Bookwalter United Methodist Church is in the heart of the Inskip and Norwood Communities visible from the junction of I-75 and I-640 just 5 miles from downtown Knoxville, Tennessee.


Tracing our history as a mission church all the way back to 1882 and through three denominational changes, we believe we are well-equipped to face any crossroads our continued path may offer.


While honoring decades of tradition, we keep an eye to the future. We offer tried and true programs for all ages such as Children and Youth activities, Sunday School, Bible study and worship, and we have adapted to offer these with online options such as Zoom meetings and YouTube broadcasts.


We actively embrace diversity in our congregation and invite you to find your place with us. 


Bookwalter UMC welcomes YOU!


Your Pastor,

Stephen K. Doyal
