Loving God, Serving Others, Welcoming All

Cross & Crown is an ELCA-affiliated Lutheran church in Matthews, NC. For nearly 30 years, we've fostered a welcoming congregation that loves God and cares for each other. At Cross & Crown, you'll find opportunities for uplifting worship, spiritual growth, Christian fellowship, and community service. Come join us for worship services and Sunday School on Sundays and for other ministry activities throughout the week.

With forecasters increasingly confident that the weather conditions for Sunday will be dangerous for travel, we are cancelling all in-person events for Sunday, January 16, 2022. A recorded Service of the Word will be available via our website, Facebook, and our YouTube channel by 10:45 AM on Sunday.
