The latest news from Active Christians Today!
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 December 8 (7:30 PM after our Christmas Eve Service) and December 9 (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!
Thanksgiving comes to Active Christians Today on Friday, November 25. We meet at 6 PM for a FULL Thanksgiving Dinner at the ACT UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606). Our menu includes turkey, corn bread stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie and apple pie.
We will sing Thanksgiving Carols around our faux fire, share our blessings and spend time in prayer and thanksgiving. We will also add to our handprint wall in the basement. If you haven't added a hand print before, now is your chance!
Plan now to be a part as we get set to celebrate the holiday season in style!
ACT UT will be joining the Weaver Family Saturday November 2 for their annual "Barn Jam." It is the 19th Annual Barn Jam!
What is Barn Jam? It has been described as a "wedding reception without the wedding and the fancy clothes." It is a potluck (bring a dish to share!) and features a campfire, an indoor snow storm, hayrides, music, giant chess, ping pong, dancing and fun.
Come and join us for a great time of fun and fellowship! Again, it's a potluck - so bring a dish to share!
The barn and the tent are heated - so it is on whether it is rain, snow or moonlight!
Join us for our ACT UT Fall Alpha Weekend beginning Friday night at 7 PM and ending Saturday evening at 5 PM at Delta Church of Christ (500 Providence St, Delta, OH 43515). Rides will be available from the ACT UT Campus House.
On Saturday night we are volunteering to help out with the Delta Church of Christ Fall Festival. Sunday morning we will join with Delta Church of Christ for worship at 10:30 AM.
There is NO cost. Come for everything or just come for a part of the weekend... we would love to have you join us!

Join us for Swing Dance Lessons beginning Thursday, October 10. We'll hold lessons every Thursday night at the Weaver Ranch in Swantucky through the rest of October! Lessons will take place in the Barn Jam barn from 7 to 8 PM. Many of our students would like to swing dance at this year's Barn Jam (November 2, 2019 at the Weaver Ranch).
Lessons are open to EVERYONE! ACT UT, ACT BG, alumni, families - doesn't matter! Even if you won't be joining us for Barn Jam, we would love to have you join us for the fun at the campus house!
We'll be teaching basic steps building up to more complicated moves as we look forward to a fun night.
It's time for some Fall fun! Our Friday Fall Fun Night will be held on Friday, October 25 with the crew from ACT BG. It's going to be a fun night out at the Weaver Ranch in Swantucky for some good old country bumpkin fun!
Campfire, s'mores, carving pumpkins, air bobbing and water bobbing for apples, leaf jumping, and so much more!
For those who do not have a ride, transportation will be available from the ACT UT House (2018 Bretton Place).
Join us for a fun night under the stars, by the fire and in the leaves!
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!
Tuesday nights we welcome you to join our Small Group study "Jesus in the Real World."
We meet at 7 PM in the Active Christians Today UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606). Each Tuesday 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 week.
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!
