Union Chapel was founded by Indiana pioneers!

The earliest record of formal Christian worship in the Nora area dates to 1827. A church building was finally erected in 1864, just a few blocks away from our current building. The property’s deed gave all denominations use of the building - thus the name Union Chapel.

When Nora became an Indianapolis suburb in the early 1950s, it became apparent that the first building was inadequate and so the congregation purchased a five-acre tract at the corner of East 86th Street and Haverstick Road. Our current building was dedicated in 1954.
