Phil Clark is a lifetime member of Christ Lutheran Elizabethtown. He cares for not only the church and office spaces, but the Luther Lodge and Cassell Farm facilities. He is also our resident historian. He has written A Communion of Saints: A History of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church. This beautiful hardback history of Christ Lutheran is available for purchase in the church office or at our online giving page. In researching the church history Phil uncovered details about local veterans. He turned this information into a second book, Some Gave All, which details all members of the Elizabethtown community who lost their lives serving in the military from the Revolution to the time of publication.
