Welcome to the website for Lutheran Chapel Evangelical Lutheran Church! We are glad you are visiting this website and would love for you to visit us in person on Sundays at our worship services (8:30 AM Confessional Service of scripture, prayer, and Holy Communion / 10:30 AM traditional service with full liturgy of Confession, scripture, Word, and faithful hymns with Gospel-based preaching). 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.
(Second Sunday of Easter)
The Easter season is a week of weeks, seven Sundays when we play in the mystery of Christ’s presence, mostly through the glorious Gospel of John. Today we gather with the disciples on the first easter, and Jesus breathes the Spirit on us. With Thomas we ask for a sign, and Jesus offers us his wounded self in the broken bread. From frightened individuals we are transformed into a community of open doors, peace, forgiveness, and material sharing such that no one among us is in need.
WELCOME BACK TO CHURCH!

The NC Synod Assembly will be held via ZOOM on June 4th and 5th. A new bishop will be selected during the assembly.
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.
Hear the Word, Live the Word, Share the Word
