Spa Day set in Fulton 

Fulton First Baptist Church is sponsoring a “Spa Day” Sept. 6 and registration is now open for women in Fulton and Hickman counties in Kentucky and Obion and Weakley counties in Tennessee.

The deadline for registration is Aug. 20 and space is limited.

The fee is $10 for a day of pampering and a presentation by a national speaker and television hostess, Ginger Garrett. There will be classes on physical beauty, spiritual beauty and creating beauty with your hands. Massages, manicures, hair consultations, hobby instruction and spiritual teaching, plus lunch and free childcare for children from birth to 4 years old, is included.

Ms. Garrett, a resident of Atlanta, will speak on topics covered in her book, “Beauty Secrets of the Bible.” She is also the author of “Chosen: The Story of Esther,” and “Dark Hour” and a soon-to-be-released volume, “In the Shadow of Lions.”

She is an authority on women’s and Biblical history.

“We’re so excited to offer women in this area a day of pampering at such a low cost,” says Rebeca Seitz, director of women’s ministry at the church. “Rarely do women get a day  off from grocery shopping, errand running, child rearing and other day-to-day activities to just learn more about being a better woman both inside and out. We were blown away by last year’s turnout and hope to have even more women participating this year.”

Registration packets are available at the church office at 115 Second St. in Fulton or participants may register online at
