The latest news from Active Christians Today!
Our Fall Semester Bible Study will travel through the book of Romans. We meet at the ACT Campus House at 8 PM on Thursdays. Refreshments and/or a light meal will be provided!
Paul writes about what it means to be truly transformed. We'll study each week the ways we can personally apply Paul's guidance to our lives. Join us each week for "When in Romans!"
Our weekly talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Each focuses on the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity through God's Word.
The most important part of the evening is our discussion. This is your chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic. There's never an obligation to say anything. And there's nothing you can't say! It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
During the year we do topical studies along with in-depth study of Scripture. In every case, we dive into God's Word to discover truths applicable to our world. Our studies have three things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
Sunday mornings we meet at Washington Church (3925 Central Ave, Toledo, OH 43606) for 10:45 AM outdoor worship. Make sure to bring a mask and look for our group. If you need a ride, please contact us and we will make sure you are able to attend.
Following worship, we will head over to Wildwood Park for a FREE picnic lunch where we will discuss the message for the morning and enjoy a time of fun and fellowship.
Due to the coronavirus state of Ohio restrictions, ACT UT is currently unable to safely worship at our campus house. We are excited to share in the worship at Washington Church where many of our students attend on a regular basis. Washington Church plans to continue worshiping outside until conditions are unsafe or too cold. We'll bring blankets and make sure everyone is comfortable each week.
Come and worship with us! Anyone and everyone is welcome!

Your friendship as a Conversation Partner can make all the difference in the life of an international person! .
Worship Encounter Kids Edition ~ June 28, 2020.
Something a little different this edition! The Weaver family has been involved in a "virtual mission trip" during the final week of June so all week so there hasn't been time to prepare a regular worship service for Active Christians Today. Instead, ACT UT Campus Pastor Scott's kids decided to record their own version of our weekly Worship Encounter time together. So, enjoy some time with Dawson, Kerrigan and the Skit Guys for our Worship Encounter this week. And huge thanks to them for giving their dad a much-needed break this week! Enjoy! And please ignore the ice cream maker mixing in the background...
