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.


We are excited to announce a joint call for co-pastors of Cross & Crown Lutheran Church! Pastor Melody and Pastor Matt Simpkins will come to us as "one" call, a wife and husband team jointly sharing the duties and responsibilities of pastoring our church. Their complementary skills, talents, and personalities will benefit Cross & Crown as we have the honor of working, worshiping, and growing our faiths together with them and their 5 kids!
