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!
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.
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!
Get set for a night of fun and laughter! On January 20, 2017 we will hold our "Gingerbread House Building Contest" at the ACT UT House (2018 Bretton Place).
Teams will challenge to make the best gingerbread house! Everyone is asked to bring an edible decoration to share such as: mini marshmallows, gumdrops, Andes Mints, mini candy canes, Hershey’s Kisses and any other candy you can think of.
All building materials will be available on a master table to choose from. Houses will be built on plywood bases (supplied) using graham crackers (supplied).
The first half hour will be structure building using royal icing and the crackers. Everyone will regroup and then released for the next hour to use the elements provided to decorate their structures.
Judging will take place with ALL participants by secret ballot. Prizes will be awarded in multiple categories: Most Creative, Most Delicious-Looking, Largest Structure and more. Prizes will include hot cocoa mixes and first choice of remaining building materials.
Come join us for the fun or just to watch the shenanigans!
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!
Student Leadership Team invites you to share with us in a daily devotion, prayer and Bible reading plan. Download the Bible app at https://www.youversion.com/. Search for "The Essential One-Hundred Bible Reading Plan." You don't have to stay in sync with the group. Just start now and work your way through!
Those students who have completed the entire Essential 100 readings by April 23 will be invited to join in a FREE sit down celebration dinner that week! Use that for inspiration as you read daily!
The Essential 100 Challenge (the E100) is a proven systematic approach that guides us through the big picture of the Bible without getting bogged down and frustrated. The E100 is a carefully selected list of short Bible passages -- 50 from the Old Testament and 50 from the New Testament -- the "essential 100." The passages are usually one to two chapters in length and can easily be read in 10 minutes or less.
Share your progress with other ACT'ers as we become accountability partners for each other. Make it a habit to spend time in the Word and in prayer as we help each other along the way.
These daily readings will provide you with insight and wisdom as you explore the word of God each day and begin a habit of daily Bible reading.
