Women’s Ministry

We provide opportunities for women to connect with other women, study God’s Word, and encourage each other in love as they journey together while growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.  Women’s ministry is for women of all ages and welcome all who wish to be a part of our family.

January Reading and Journaling Plan

A letter from Kari Powell


Hello ladies!

It’s a new year already, so that will be our theme for January.  Traditionally a new year makes people look ahead, set goals, and usually have some area in their lives they want to do better in.

Before we do that though, I’d like you to really take some time to reflect on the past year.  Ask yourself some questions and spend some time on prayer.  Ask God to reveal to you how he’s been working in your life and how you’ve grown.  Hindsight is 20/20, right?  Well, maybe it can help encourage you, and help you see how God is always with you working behind the scenes.  He always has a plan; we just have to trust when we only see pieces of it.

The world is full of uncertainties for 2022.  Make sure to focus on our great God and all the certainty He brings to our lives as believers.  Welcome a new year excited to see what God will do in your life, and how you can use it for His glory!

Hugs and Prayers,


What to Expect…

We create an environment centered around loving and supporting each other in the same way that Christ loves and supports us.  Our goal is to help each other follow Jesus in the best way that we can.  We have several events throughout the year, including a ladies’ tea in the spring and a ladies’ retreat in the fall.  If you are interested in being a part of women’s ministry or want to know about upcoming events, please contact us at office@toledofirstbaptist.com.

Ladies Retreat

Every fall, our ladies spend a weekend at Falls Creek Retreat Center in Raymond, Washington.  It is quite a nice getaway for a weekend of Biblical inspiration and fellowship.  We have a guest speaker who will provide Biblical teaching. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful.  There are times to hike the trails to the waterfall, enjoy the solitude, fellowship, crafts, and games.  Times to find rest, peace, strengthen relationships and rejoice in God’s creation.  Good food is provided for you.  The rooms are nice and homey.

Due to the current pandemic, we cannot hold our ladies’ retreat this year; we are praying we can start back up in the fall of 2022.
