Humble Beginnings

Christ the Lord Lutheran Church began as a mission congregation of the Lutheran Church in America. (ELCA). In August of 1978, Pastor Bill Quail was called to begin a new congregation in Gwinnett County. After visiting some 2000 homes in the Lawrenceville community, Pastor Quail led the first worship service on January 14, 1979, with 174 people attending. The congregation was formally organized in May of 1979.

Christ the Lord continues growing.

Reverend Mitchell began his ministry here in July of 1984. He has led the congregation through tremendous growth — spiritually, numerically, and in facilities. There have been two major building programs over the past 20 years. Long term plans are in place to accommodate continued growth.

Pastor Terri Stagner-Collier served our congregation from 2002 to 2006 and Pastor Julie Ehlers King served our congregation from 2007 to 2012.  In May 2009, we celebrated 30 years of ministry and look forward to many, many more!  Pastor Bob can be reached at ext. 111 or pastorbob@christthelordlutheran.org.
