Lynn is currently serving as coordinator of faith formation at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Franklin County,  where she coordinates and leads faith formation and activities for children, youth and adults. In her time there, she has also helped develop a Micah 6 study group focused on Gospel-oriented advocacy.
Lynn’ describes social ministry and advocacy as part of the core of her being. “Foundational to my life is my faith in the triune God, the knowledge that God has made us all in his/her image, and everyone is entitled to be treated equally with dignity and respect.  Since my teenage years, I recognized and have been passionate about my life making a difference in the world in a positive way,” Lynn remarked.

“I am thrilled to begin working with Lynn, whose ministry is recognized with so much respect in her synod, and who displays such enthusiasm for the Gospel and for equipping disciples in every way,” said LAMPa Director Tracey DePasquale.  “Her gifts will be immediately helpful to youth leaders preparing for the National Youth Gathering in 2018.”   Leaders looking for such assistance as they prepare to teach the pre-gathering curriculum can email LAMPa here.

Lynn holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) and a Master of Religion degree from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg with a concentration in Christian Education.  Highlights of her tenure at St. Luke included mission trips, ELCA Youth Gatherings and family retreats. In addition to the Micah 6 study group, she is involved in several Franklin County advocacy organizations.

A native of Lancaster County, Lynn was previously employed with the St. Joseph Hospital Foundation; the Lancaster County Chapter of the American Cancer Society; and Lutheran Social Services – East Region (Luthercare).

Fry is looking forward to meeting people from across the state who share her passion for social justice and advocacy. Lynn expressed, “I am a proponent of grassroots efforts led by passionate, thoughtful volunteers. I am anxious to learn more and be immersed in the legislative process.”

In her free time, Lynn enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, and gardening.  She and her husband are parents to three young adults.
