When Terri Cobb moved thousands of miles away from her former California home to begin a new role in her life, she didn't waste time wondering how she could get involved.

The wife of Fair Haven Baptist Church's new pastor Mike Cobb, Terri began planning the church's inaugural Community Health Fair with the help of other local women, including Donna Thomas, Keri Smith and Amy Molder.

Reaching people

"I got the idea while at the gym, while thinking about the church, the community," said Terri. "So I ran it by a friend of mine who's an RN and it just took off from there ... Our goal as a church is to reach people through Jesus Christ ... Our purpose (with the fair) is to reach the ladies who live here."

With a goal in mind, Terri aimed high and the result comes to life this Saturday, Jan. 21 at the Fair Haven Baptist Church 2012 Women's Health Fair. Twenty-four different sessions are being offered to women at no charge with 13 local leaders presenting on a wide-range of topics about women's physical, spiritual, mental and emotional health.

The event is free and doors open at 8 a.m. Women can register upon arriving. While there is no cost, anyone who attends is asked to bring a canned good that will be donated to Good Samaritan.

Giving back

"Everything we give as a community goes back into the community," Terri said.

Several businesses have shown support for the event by reserving booth space (there is still space available) and others are offering further support by providing refreshments.

"We hope to do this top notch, to do it with excellence," Terri said. "By design, women are different, so it's for women, but if this year's a success, maybe we can expand next year."

The day is organized by four time slots, with six different classes being offered in each time slot.
