Hear the Word, Live the Word, Share the Word



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.

This Week's Message

(Sixth Sunday after Epiphany)

In Deuteronomy 30:15-20, we are called to choose life by loving and obeying God. Much of today’s gospel reading echoes portions of the Ten Commandments. Jesus’ instructions to the crowd reveal a pattern of behavior that honors both God and the neighbor, resulting in life and health for the whole community. We too are invited to embrace thee commandments, not out of fear of retribution, but because God has promised that to do so means life for us.

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.
