Greensburg — The First Baptist Church will be hosting a free women’s health fair June 22, from 9 to 11 a.m., though it is recommended for attendees to arrive at 8:45 a.m. for registration.

The health workshop, entitled “Becoming Fit for the King,” will feature three breakout sessions, each with a several speakers to choose from, as well as numerous booths people can visit for a variety of health related information. This event will be free and open to the community, but if participants want to donate, they can bring a pair of new or gently used shoes. The shoes will be collected for the “soles4souls” program.

The first breakout session will take place from 9:15 to 9:45 a.m. and will have five different speakers to choose from. Nancy Fogg will discuss “Living With Diabetes.” Fogg has lived with type 1 diabetes since she was very young and will be sharing her experiences and knowledge with attendees. Laura Reiger’s topic will be “Handling and Coping with Stress.” Reiger will share her experiences with stress, how it relates to health and what can be done to relieve it. Sue Menefee will speak on the topic of “Breast Cancer.” Menefee will share her personal experience from her own battle with breast cancer, as well as the importance of early detection. She will also give a lesson on how to do self-exams. Laura Huber’s speech will cover “The ABC’s of Parenting.” Huber is an author with special focus on children and Christian beliefs. She has written several books, including “The ABC’s of Homeschooling.” Huber will teach parenting skills, which she said are “as simple as knowing your ABC’s.” Finally, Deanna Young and Linda Volk will speak on the topic “Volunteering.” The duo will share how volunteering can be beneficial to health.

After a brief break, the second breakout session will take place from 9:55 to 10:25 a.m. and will also offer five topics to choose from. Lisa Ebbinger will speak about “Dealing with Grief.” Ebbinger understands the pain of losing someone precious and will share her experience on going through the stages of grief, using scripture along the way. Marcia Barnes will give a comical, yet practical speech on the topic of menopause. Barnes’ speech should offer insight into the common issues menopausal women must address. Michelle Scudder and Lisa Fogg will be speaking about “Infertility and Adoption.” Scudder and Fogg will share their faith journey in relation to infertility. They will give the pros and cons of the medical side versus adoption. They will also explain the differences between domestic and international adoption. Becky Hand will give a speech on the topic of “Child Nutrition.” Hand is a registered dietitian and was a professor in Cincinnati. She has recently published a book and will give parents practical tips and advice on how to feed children, even picky eaters. Deanna Young and Linda Volk will round out the second breakout session with another speech on the topic of volunteering. Their speech will include “finding out how you can happen to your world, instead of your world just happening to you.” The Bible offers many ways to make a difference to other people and their speech will help attendees find ways to help while heightening their spiritual awareness as they make a difference in the lives of others.

The third breakout session will take place from 10:30 to 10:55 a.m. and will feature only one speaker. Lisa Fogg will speak on the topic of “The Same Old Cookie.” Fogg will share her opinion on how following Christ should be exciting and challenging, never boring or routine. Fogg will explain the reasons behind her opinion, so that believers may grow and mature in their faith.

In addition to the wide variety of speakers and topics, there will be at least 14 booths with health-related information available for perusal. Several health experts will be in attendance to answer questions. There will also be numerous door prizes and giveaways passed out to attendees. The First Baptist Church is located at 209 West Washington Street.

Any questions about this event can be directed to Lisa at 812-593-6841 or Deanna at 812-498-2281.
