The latest news from Active Christians Today!
The Ohio Student Ministries annual Winter Retreat takes place February 15 to 17, 2019. 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 15 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!!!
Active Christians Today at the University of Toledo follows the Lucas County regulations regarding Snow Emergency levels. We will update our website and social media as conditions warrant.
During a LEVEL 1, official events will take place but please use caution. During a LEVEL 2, official ACT events will be postponed or canceled. However, the campus house may be open for those who are on campus and do not have to travel. Other factors may affect the final decision. If weather conditions improve during the day and roads are passable, afternoon or evening activies may be resinstated if the Snow Emergency is lifted.
Information regarding the weather situation will be updated here and on our social media outlets.
Please be aware of the official Lucas County Severe Weather levels:
LEVEL 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy. Motorists are urged to drive very cautiously.
LEVEL 2: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be very icy. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roads. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work. Motorists should use extreme caution.
LEVEL 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be driving during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.
Our next Student Leadership Team (SLT) meeting will take place during our winter retreat February 15 to 17. As always, we have a lot of information to cover as we cover all of the ministry work and events happening during the Spring term. Plan now to attend and have a say in all of our activities over the next few months!
The SLT is responsible for planning all of our events, themes, organization and administration of Active Christians Today UT. Also, University of Toledo regulations require officer positions for all student organizations.
You do not have to be an officer to serve on our team!
We have many students who are serving but have chosen not to take an officer role. We would love for you to be involved!
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!

Active Christians Today at the University of Toledo (ACT UT) gathers for worship at the ACT UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606) each Sunday night at 6:30 PM. We meet in "The Refuge" (the basement of the Campus House!). Come as you are!
Over the course of this semester, we will encounter worship together as we praise God through song and with messages drawn from both the Old and New Testament. Above all, we will seek to cultivate our life together in Christ at ACT UT by growing stronger in worship and community as a campus ministry family. Join us Sunday night at 6:30!
Come and worship with us! Anyone and everyone is welcome!
Sunday Night Worship Encounter! You never know when the Lord will change your life...
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!
Wednesday nights are busy at the ACT House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606)! We begin with our Free Family Dinner at 5:30 PM. If class or your job is off later, no worries! We'll save some for you!
We prepare a special and sometimes unique meal each Wednesday. We serve everything from the typical (pizza, tacos) to the off-beat (breakfast for dinner, cereal). We will also grill out when possible including everything from pork chops to hot dogs and burgers!
Bible Study begins at 7:00 PM. Our Spring Bible Study focuses on the book of Daniel. Daniel's experiences aren't that far away from those we face in our world today. Come find out how his example can be an example for us!
Come join us!
