The latest news from Active Christians Today!
The Ohio Student Ministries annual Winter Retreat takes place February 21 to 23, 2020. The retreat brings together students from the University of Toledo, Bowling Green State University, Ohio University and Ohio State University. It is going to be a great weekend to retreat, refresh and re-charge your faith!
It's also a great chance to get to know the ACT crew!!! We depart from the Weaver Ranch on Friday, February 21 at 5:30. You will need bedding (sheets/blanket/sleeping bag - we have extras if you need it), basic bathroom items including towel and toiletries, weather appropriate clothing, Bible, notebook and pen or pencil. No liability form needed.
You will have time to study if needed as we always have people who need to spend time on schoolwork. We return home Sunday by 6 PM (weather and bathroom stop-dependent). The retreat is FREE if you have never attended a retreat with us before. Message us to sign up. It is well-worth attending!!!
Join us on March 1, 2020 for the Walleye Faith and Family Night. Come to the Huntington Center to share your faith with other Walleye fans!
The ticket price includes a pregame Q&A session led by Toledo Walleye chaplain, Tom Fraser. Fans will have the opportunity to hear from select Walleye players about their experiences with their faith throughout their careers. Following the game, there will be a FREE open skate for anyone who would like to participate.
Tickets are $17 each and must be purchased in advance (we have a group rate and we will sit together). Once our block sells out, you will have to purchase tickets on your own.
ACT UT will not hold our regular worship service on March 1.
We will leave from the ACT UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606) together for the trip to the Huntington Center. The Walleye take on the Wheeling Nailers.
Bring some extra money for snacks and plan on a fun night at the Toledo Walleye! Everyone is invited to join us.
Part of our ACT UT 2019 Fall Retreat weekend included hiking at Oak Openings Metropark. We spent some time in the sand dunes working through the Daily Examen - a way to consider where we have been and where we are going in our journey of faith. The weather was perfect and the scenery reminded us of what a great Creator we serve!
We had some good, messy fun at our annual Messy Twister night at the Active Christians Today University of Toledo Campus House! It was great to welcome ACT Bowling Green State University to the festivities in what was truly a perfect night for getting covered in shaving cream from head to toe!
Messy Twister is Twister with a twist! Each of the Twister circles will be filled with tempera paint and shaving cream... leading to a MESS!

ACT BG & UT traveled to Ann Arbor, Detroit and Dearborn to answer the question "Who is My Neighbor?" We reached out to the homeless in Ann Arbor, we worked with Central Detroit Christian Community Development and learned about work in Dearborn. It was an amazing weekend filled with prayer, fellowship, service and testimony!
Despite the scattered showers, we had a wonderful evening filled with blessed encounters, uplifting conversation, joyful fellowship and a lot of hot dogs and hamburgers! Thank you to everyone who gave of their time and volunteered to help out for this fantastic outreach to the BG student community!
