Coddle Creek Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, Session House and Cemetery is a historic house of worship Presbyterian church, session house, and cemetery located near Mooresville, Iredell County, North Carolina near Davidson, North Carolina. The first church building was constructed in 1753 and destroyed by fire in 1839. Its replacement was destroyed by fire in 1884 and the current structure was built. The church building is a one-story, three bay by five bay, Late Italianate style frame building. It features an entrance tower with louvered vents, four cross gables with wooden finials at peak, and bracketed eaves. Also on the property is the contributing session house, built about 1884, and church cemetery with about 250 gravestones.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]

As of April 2017 Coddle Creek Church stopped hosting their local Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops because the Scout organization decided to allow Transgender youths to join.
