The latest news from Active Christians Today!
One of the traditions at ACT is our Easter Sunday worship service where we beautify the ugly cross. Join us in placing flowers on our cross to symbolize what Jesus did to beautify what truly was an ugly symbol.
We will meet in the blue room upstairs for a very laid back, acoustic worship with a short devotion and then a time of beautifying the cross. You are invited to join us for this special time.
Wednesday following our Free Family Dinner at 5:30 we hold our weekly large group Bible Study at 7 PM. To close out our Spring Semester we focused on how to reach the world with God's love. With that in mind, we are using Bob Goff's book Everybody Always as our guide.
In this special video and group discussion series, bestselling author Bob Goff shares some of the stories from his life that have helped him understand what it truly means to love everybody the way Jesus loved them.
How do we love the way Jesus loved? Without fear, insecurity, or restriction. Following Christ means more than just putting a toe in the water when it comes to loving others. It means grabbing your knees and doing a cannonball! And, as Jesus revealed, it means loving the difficult ones. Everybody, Always will provide practical steps to help you take that journey.
Join us Wednesday nights through the end of the spring semester for "Everybody Always" and see how God might challenge you to take a step of faith and reach out to the world around you!
Come on out to the country on Friday, April 26 at 6:30 for our annual Koinonia Dinner at the Weaver Ranch (6260 Prov Neap Swan Rd Swanton OH 43558)!
Contribute a finger food to our potluck and get ready to share the moments God blessed, taught or revealed something through ACT or in your life this year.
The word Koinonia is a Greek word and it means "fellowship, sharing in common and communion." We will have "communion" by sharing food (finger food) with no utensils.
We will enjoy time around the campfire and have a night to let loose and enjoy sharing together, laughing and celebrating as we close out another school year with ACT UT!
Join us in this much-loved twice yearly event as we pass out dozens of donuts to exam-weary students in the lobby of the library April 28 (7:30 PM after our Student - Led Worship Encounter) and April 29 (7 PM).
If you have an ACT shirt, wear it. However, the goal of the giveaway is NOT to promote ACT. Our goal is to be servants serving together. We will not pass out advertisements, brochures or anything. If someone asks about us, of course we will talk but that is not our main goal.
We will pass out donuts on Sunday night until we are done!
We will return on Monday night at around 7 PM to conclude our giveaway with another few dozen donuts.
Come and share the joy of giving with us!
Our final Sunday Night Worship Encounter of the school year is led by our students. It is an annual tradition in which our worship team, testimonies, Scripture and everything that takes place is organized and led by our students. Come join us at 6:30 PM for Student Worship Night!
Worshipping God together is more than a religious activity to us: it is a central value of our existence. At ACT we believe that making much of God together through corporate worship is vitally important, and something that we will continue to do on into eternity.
Our Sunday Night Worship Encounter is designed first and foremost to worship God in spirit and in truth as a community of believers. As we do so, God builds up His people through the power of His presence and sends us out on His mission, in the power of His Spirit.
Active Christians Today at the University of Toledo (ACT UT) gathers for worship at the ACT UT House (2018 Bretton Place) each Sunday night at 6:30 PM. Come as you are!

Monday nights are Small Group Mondays with our Men's and Women's Small Group gatherings.
Our Women's Small Group "Jesus in the Real World" meets at 6:45 PM Mondays in the Active Christians Today UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606). Each Monday the group takes a case study and looks at it from a Christian perspective. How does faith play into real world situations? That's the question we attempt to answer each Monday.
Our Men's Group is currently at Patrick's each Monday at 7 PM (message us for directions).
At the core, our small groups are an opportunity for our students to get connected, study God’s Word, and encourage each other in their walk with Christ.
The goal of our small groups is to help students become fully devoted followers of Christ and to allow God's Word to inspire them to love, learn, and lead the present and future generations.
If you are interested in an ACT UT Small Group, just show up! We would love to meet you and would love to hear your contribution to our weekly discussions.
Whether you're looking to meet others in your own life stage or find someone to be an accountability partner, this is the place to be!
