We offer an early traditional service with full liturgy of Confession, scripture, Word, and faithful hymns with Gospel-based preaching) at 9:00 AM on Sunday mornings. We believe that the Word is the Good News that God offers us full salvation and comfort through the obedience of Jesus the Christ and the gift of faith through the Holy Spirit. We are a joyful, friendly community of Christ who takes our worship together with gravity, after which we go out to serve God and the mission field with the gifts God grants us. Please peruse our website to see more specific details of how God calls us to serve China Grove and the larger community beyond through our mission statement of Hear the Word! Live the Word! Share the Word! We are located off Main Street in China Grove, NC across from West Lawn Cemetery. You may access our beautiful white church nestled in a grove of woods by turning on Coach Deal Drive between the Family Dollar and Mt. Zion United Church of Christ. Please visit our warm and welcoming community.

This Week's Message

December 5, 2021

(Second Sunday of Advent)

Forerunners and messengers advance the advent of our God. While John the baptizer’s voice in the wilderness may be the principal focus of the day, Malachi’s prophecy could as easily herald the coming Christ as forerunner of the Lord of hosts. Finally, all the baptized are called to participate in the sharing of the gospel. In so doing we prepare the way for the coming of Jesus and assist all people in capturing a vision of the “salvation of God.”

Can you help us?

We are trying to find a photo of each of the past members of Lutheran Chapel that have a stained-glass window in their honor/memory.  We know there are still family members from many of these folks and we would love to add a page to our website with the dedication and the photo. We have photos for two of the windows so far. Take a look. For more information about this project, click here.

Our Mission

 

We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
