My name is Lynn Stratton, and I am honored to be introducing God and Jesus Christ to the teens of our church.

I grew up in a family where we moved often – my dad worked in radio and tv and then the Foreign Service. We lived in Michigan, New York, Virginia, Indonesia and Japan.  Because of these moves I was raised in both the Presbyterian and Methodist churches depending on where we were living.  Eventually Northern Virginia became my permanent home for 35 years; my three children were born and raised there, and St. Johns United Methodist, in Springfield, Virginia became our home church.  During that time at St. Johns, I started working with youth as the Acolyte Coordinator and was involved with Confirmation.

When I moved to Beaufort, I visited various churches but when I walked into Carteret, I knew I was home.  Shortly after joining the church, I started working with the youth as their representative to the Church Council, teaching Middle and Senior High Sunday School and doing UMYF.  

I love working with the youth, they teach me so much and I, in return, can show the love of God them.

I feel this is what God has called me to do.
