Life Action coming
Life Action, a ministry dedicated to living and teaching practical, daily applications from God’s word, is coming to Troy Sunday through March 25 to hold an eight-day revival summit.
Through a series of evening services and seminars at First Baptist Church of Troy, the Life Action Team will present thought-provoking messages and worshipful music focusing on God’s life-giving truths.
The summit will begin Sunday at 10:45 a.m. and continue Monday through March 25 at 6:30 p.m.  
During this time, there will be instructional teaching, family seminars, music and programs for children and teenagers. The focus will be on America’s greatest need today — practical living-out of biblical values and principles upon which our country was founded.  
Coming from across the country, this group of young adults and a few families is one of three Life Action Road Teams that travel September-June, sharing God’s revival truths with churches. Founded in 1971 by evangelist Del Fehsenfeld Jr., Life Action now has more than 200 staff members who long to see Christians radically living out their faith and, thereby, resulting in a spiritual awakening among the lost, a spokesman said.

To recreate Passover
Christ in the Passover — Jesus’ last supper was actually a Jewish Passover. Mark Landrum of Jews for Jesus will recreate the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus’ death and resurrection in a presentation called “Christ in the Passover” at Calvary Baptist Church at 2250 East Reelfoot Ave. in Union City Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Landrum will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance. He will also explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, as well as the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion today.
With presentations in over 38,000 churches, “Christ in the Passover” is an unforgettable experience. Landrum will be available for questions after the presentation. There is no admission charge. Preschool childcare is available.
