Here's your chance for to show off your knowledge and win fabulous prizes! Let's geek out and have ourselves a good old fashioned trivia night! ACT UT presents Trivia Night on February 24 at 7 PM at the ACT UT House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606).
The Trivia Master will present a series of questions for our challengers. The winners will advance in each round. Subjects will be varied and include all types of trivia. No cell phones, computers, or any other electronic devices may be used for answering questions.
All answers are final as determined by the Triva Master. If the Trivia Master makes a mistake, the question will be disregarded and a new question will be asked.
No purchase necessary to play. Prizes and fun to be had!
Food will be provided to supplement the need for full brainpower. Seriously. Can anyone think on an empty stomach?
After our Trivia Night concludes, join us as we travel to Bowling Green State University to help with the ACT BG Hot Cocoa Giveaway. We will gather at the ACT BG Campus House (612 E Wooster St, Bowling Green 43402).
Each Friday night, thousands of students pass by the front of the ACT BG Campus House on Wooster Street in Bowling Green. This is a great opportunity to reach out to these students with the love of Christ through... hot chocolate!
Jesus calls us to be servants and one of the ways we can show His love for all is through giving. No judging, no condemnation... just the opportunity to touch lives and plant seeds for the Kingdom.
Would you like to join in the fun? We will gather at the ACT BG Campus House at 10 PM to prepare for what promises to be a momentous evening.
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!
Bible Study begins at 7:00 PM. Our Spring Semester study is the Gospel of Mark. The Gospel of Mark is attributed to being written by John Mark. Mark's Gospel is the shortest and most action-packed Gospel written in the form of a story.
The Gospel of Mark is a text read by academics, scholars and the person on the street! It is a text that raises many important questions, both scholarly and theological.
Join with us as we take a deep dive into the mystery of Christ as we study the Gospel of Mark!
Our student-led women's small group meets 7:30 PM Thursdays at the Campus House (2018 Bretton Place).
So what is it about? It is an opportunity for our women students to get connected, study God’s Word, and encourage each other in their walk with Christ.
The goal of Women’s Bible Study is to help women 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.
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!
If you are interested, please see Emily Jackson, Q or Erin. Or just show up at the ACT UT Campus House Thursday nights!
For our Spring Semester 2017 our ACT UT weekly Prayer Walk begins each week at 5:29 PM in the Student Union in front of the fountain.
What is the "Prayer Walk?" We walk our campus and stop at various points to spend time praying lifting up the students, teachers, professors and administrators of our university.
Whether you are a student, teacher, leader, member of another student organization - we would love to have you join us! We can all use prayer - the more, the better!
Prayer Walk takes place during Fall and Spring semester when the University of Toledo is in session. See our calendar for exact dates and times as it can vary each semester. To read more about our Prayer Walk, CLICK HERE!
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!
Our worship is joyful and enthusiastic. We praise God, we sing, we share a message from the Bible. We gather for communion (Lord's Supper) the first Sunday of each month.
God alone is worthy of our devotion, praise and worship. He is God, our Creator, and we are commanded to praise and worship Him. Psalm 96:9 says, "Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth."
Psalm 29:2 says, "Give unto the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness."
Come and worship with us! Anyone and everyone is welcome!
It’s gray and dark as it always is during this time of year in Northwest Ohio but that is definitely not the case at ACT UT!
This past month we have focused on two specific passages of Scripture to guide our January theme: “Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.” Psalm 51:7 (NIV) and “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” Isaiah 1:18 (NIV). Our focus is on the fact that no matter the sin, God has the power to wipe the slate clean and make us all “white as snow.”
Our January First Friday Film Festival movie of the month was “Ben Hur” which we all agreed was much better than the media and critics made it out to be. Great discussion starter in case you might be interested in seeing it yourself.
Our new Student Leadership Team (SLT) has met for our first Spring Semester meeting. Plans are underway for many different outreach events with a goal of bringing more people to Christ through the ministry of ACT. Our Prayer Team is also developing several projects to incorporate more prayer into the lives of students.
Many students are reading through the Essential 100 Bible passages using the youversion app. Those who complete the full 100 passages (50 from the Old Testament and 50 from the New Testament) are invited to a special congratulatory dinner at the end of April.
Our Wednesday night Bible Study is working through the Gospel of Mark. This particular book that was actually shunned by many in the Early Church is a bare bones but powerful book. Our Wednesday night discussions about the book of Mark have been vibrant and fun! As always, we begin with a free dinner at 5:30.
Our special events have included a Gingerbread House Building Contest (using Graham Crackers) and a Game Night and Indoor Snowball Fight. We are always trying to find ways to bring in new students!
At the end of January we welcomed ACT BG up to the ACT UT Campus House for a combined worship service. We have many more combined events planned this Spring!
Our ladies have begun a new Small Group study on Thursday nights using the book “Women of the Word” as their guide. We are excited to bring in more new leaders as we reach out to new students!
Our weekly Prayer Walk has returned on Thursdays. Students walk around the campus stopping at different places to pray over the students, leadership, administration, professors and teachers.
In February we are excited to welcome our BG brothers and sisters up for “Football Sunday.” We will begin with a half hour worship service featuring testimonies from many players actually playing in the Super Bowl. Following that, we will sit back, relax and watch the Game!
God has opened up the doors to many opportunities. We thank you for your continued support as we discern where God is leading next!
ACT UT and ACT BG joined together for and amazing Football Sunday party on February 5. Students from both the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University participated in all of the fun.
Our evening began with a special time hearing the testimonies of Believers who played in this year's big game. Testimonies were recorded during the weeks leading up to the game. These testimonies were extremely powerful. The video closed with a presentation of the Gospel and then... it was time for the game (and commercials!).
The ACT UT house was ready with three TVs so that everyone could watch the game - or the commercials as the case may be. Our basement was devoted to those who wanted to focus on the game.
UT students spent the afternoon preparing a vareity of sliders to keep the crew well-fed. Chips, dips and a variety of traditional football snacks were brought by many to add to our wide selection.
It truly turned out to be a great night! Everyone made their picks and then sat back to watch a truly amazing and historic football game. Fellowship, food and fun made for a wonderful FOOTBALL SUNDAY!
