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.


It is an exciting time at Cross & Crown as we enter into a new chapter and begin the process of calling a new pastor. If you are looking for a Church to call home this is a perfect time to join and help shape the future of our Church as we go through this time of transition. God has raised up leaders and gifted pastors for the church in all times and places and we faithfully look to the Holy Spirit to guide our call committee. We ask for your prayers as we embark on this journey. We enthusiastically embrace God's future for our community of faith and our new pastor. God is at work with us in all of this.
