Cross of Life is a vibrant, mid-sized congregation which intentionally reaches out to the diverse communities of Roswell, Alpharetta, Milton, John’s Creek, Woodstock and beyond. Seeking to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ in real and relevant ways, we have been blessed with steady growth and development of ministries over the past few years. A member congregation of the Southeastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Cross of Life was organized in 1973. Originally located on Alpharetta Highway, we quickly realized there was no room to expand. We came to our current setting in the 80’s, with a new wing added in 2004. Pastor Terri Stagner-Collier became our Senior Pastor in 2010 and Pastor David Rogers joined our staff in 2015.
Cross of Life Christian Montessori School was established in 1994 and is the only Christian Montessori school (AMI certified) in the North Metro area. Serving children 15 months through Kindergarten, COLCMS is an active part of the Cross of Life community, celebrating the beauty and blessings of God’s littlest children.
