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 service. 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
January 22, 2023
(Third Sunday after Epiphany)
Jesus begins his public ministry by calling fishers to leave their nets and follow him. In Jesus the kingdom of God has come near. We who have walked in darkness have seen a great light. We see this light most profoundly in the cross—as God suffers with us and all who are oppressed by sickness, sin, or evil. Light dawns for us as we gather around the word, the font, and the holy table. We are then sent to share the good news that others may be “caught” in the net of God’s grace and mercy.

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.

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.
