We have a big day planned for Saturday, April 1! Our April Fool's Day special is a Scavenger Hunt planned by our ACT ladies for the ACT men. The fun begins at 2 PM when the men will be sent out across the city of Toledo following clues to see if they can complete the hunt created by our ladies. Once the hunt is over, the ladies have planned a dinner for everyone back at the ACT UT Campus House!
Why have the ladies planned the Scavenger Hunt for the men? This was the result of the Haiti Coin Wars challenge. The losers had to create a scavenger hunt for the winners. This is pay off day!
Plan now to join in on the fun whether sending the men off scavenging or being the scavenger!
Don't forget: 2 PM at the ACT UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place, Toledo, 43604).
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.
Here is our schedule for the remaining Wednesday studies:
March 22 - Mark 4:1-25; March 29 - Mark 6:1-29; April 5 - Mark 14:32-52; April 12 - Mark 15:21-47; April 19 - Mark 16:1-20.
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. To read more about our Prayer Walk, CLICK HERE!
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!
