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.
