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.

For the health and safety of the community, we are currently limiting in-person worship. We ask individuals/families who register in advance for our two services to agree to safety protocols such as mandatory mask-wearing and social distancing.
