Our History

The first Greek Orthodox Liturgy in Forsyth County was held on February 22, 1997, at Christ the King Lutheran Church. Father Sebastian of the Holy Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church in Marietta, conducted this first service. We continued to have one Saturday service per month through August, 1999. In addition to Father Sebastian, we were fortunate to have the services of Father Michael Kouremetis, Father Michael Eacarinos, both of the Cathedral and Father Petros Kopsahillis, Chancellor of the Diocese.

On Sunday, September 19, 1999, we had our first Sunday service at the Ivy League Montessori School in Cumming. Shortly thereafter, we moved to the Vickery Elementary School, Cumming, because of the need for more space and Father Petros again came to us to conduct our Sunday Service replacing Father Steven. It was at the Vickery Elementary School that Father Petros was replaced by Father Kenneth Anthony who became our Spiritual Leader.

About a year later we moved to our present location. Father Hans Jacobse came to us from Fort Myers, Florida, and took over as our Spiritual Leader on September 1, 2003.
