Rev. Lexie Chamberlain  

The Rev. Lexie Chamberlain, our minister of the Word, Sacrament, and Pastoral Care, has been with us since 2000.

Originally, we welcomed her as Minister of Pastoral Care, part time. Rev. Lexie’s tenure in that role was to last only until June 30, 2001, when she departed to devote her time to motherhood.  On November 1, 2002, we were fortunate to welcome Rev. Lexie back.

Reverend Lexie Chamberlain has a passion for ministry, especially when it comes to making people feel loved and included.  Her warm personality and endearing smile brighten our community.  She is someone who invites us to be on a spiritual journey.  She does not always have the answers, but she is enjoys engaging in the questions of life.  In May of 2015, Reverend Lexie celebrated 25 years of ordained ministry.  She is married to The Reverend Darrow Woods and they have two children, Naomi and Joel.

In her time with us, she has helped to keep St. Paul’s a happy, friendly and exciting, intergenerational family.

We are truly blessed to have her. She has anounced that she will be leaving St. Paul's but not until the summer of 2018.

Lexie can be reached through the office or e-mail her at
