Pacific Northwest American Baptist Women's Ministries (PNW- ABWM) represents the women from the American Baptist Churches in Washington and Idaho. We are affiliated with and promote the work of the American Baptist Women's Ministries of the U.S.A.

American Baptist Women’s Ministries

has a long heritage of being on the forefront of mission and ministry with women and girls worldwide. From our very roots to today, AB Women’s Ministries has addressed critical issues such as sex trafficking, poverty, equal voice, safety and security, access to water and other natural resources, leadership development, and, of course, spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. Isaiah 61:1-3, quoted again by Jesus in Luke 4:18-19, provides us inspiration to bring good news to the oppressed, bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim liberty and release…to provide for those who mourn and give them a garland instead of ashes, a mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. American Baptist Women’s Ministries—empowering women and girls to live into the fullness of who they are created by God to be. 




JUNE 24 – 26, 2022

The American Baptist Women of the Pacific Northwest are planning a women’s retreat and we would love to have you attend.  This weekend will be a time to feel safe, encourage each other to share, to help each other to heal and reacquaint with each other after being apart for three years. This will be a retreat and not like conferences we have had in the past.

We will have bible study and focus on our theme “Let the Walls Fall Down”.  There have been several types of walls that we have all built up over the covid epidemic and other circumstances that have happened over the past three years. We will also have a silent auction for all the homemade items that you have made or will make.  The proceeds from the auction along with our special offering will go the ABW National Ministries.

The cost will be $115.00 per person.  This covers two nights, meals, and registration fee.  Since we are meeting at Camp Bethel the price is greatly reduced.  The price is the same no matter how many women are in a room.  Depending on how many women attend, there MAY NOT be single rooms available.  You will need to select your own roommates.  These will be options available when you register.

Retreat Center is across the street and a short walk or drive to the lodge.  There are 12 rooms available with two beds, bathroom with toilet and sink and showers in the hallway.  There is one handicapped room.

The Lodge has:

Four rooms with three beds – includes bedding and bathroom with shower

Two rooms with four beds – includes bedding and bathroom with shower

Two rooms with 10 beds – DOES NOT include bedding – has bathroom with shower

There are two handicapped rooms.

Cabins – DO NOT include bedding or bathrooms – centrally located around the lodge

More information on the retreat and registration form to follow by the end of April. We are excited about this retreat and look forward to seeing you!
