Our History

Unity of the Lakes was founded in September, 1982, by Reverend Bernice Ketchum and her husband, Frank Ketchum. At first, meetings were held in their home at Arrowhead Lake Estates. A few months later meetings were moved to a relatively private area of a local restaurant. As attendance increased, space became cramped, and in January, 1986, the board voted to lease office at the corner of Main and Commercial streets.

In July, 1991, a church/school building with 5.3 acres became available eight miles south of Warsaw. The board approved the purchase, the building was refurbished, and the dedication and first service were held on October 20, 1991. We have been in this location ever since.
