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!
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 opening study for the Fall 2016 Semester is the book of Colossians. It seems rather strange to even conceive of definitions for "mystery." We love to take the supernatural out of mystery. We reduce life to a set of predictable rules and rigid practices that we can follow. However, God makes clear life's not about rules and religious practices; it never has been. It's about relationship, heroic intimacy, and a mysterious fellowship of hearts!
Join with us as we take a deep dive into the myster of Christ as we study the book of Colossians!
Our Thursday night student-led small group meets 7 PM Thursdays at the Campus House (2018 Bretton Place).
So what is it about? We will begin with what we all need: discernment. The book "What Keeps You Up at Night?" helps students activate faith and trust in God that will propel them forward through fear and anxiety to peace, faithfulness, and trust.
Through this study, participants will get a proper understanding of the nature of fear. It will help develop habits for coping with fear and get tools for remaining in motion toward an anxiety-free life. Learn to move forward despite doubts and questions.
If you are interested in this study, please see Erin or Q. Or just show up at the ACT UT Campus House Thursday nights!
You are invited to take part in an exciting opportunity to make a student friend from another country as you help that student practice English.

Our First Friday Family Film Festival continues on October 7, 2016. We will show the film at the ACT UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606) at 7 PM.
Ice cream, popcorn, movie snacks and beverages will be provided along with several rooms to view the movie. We know that some enjoy commenting during the film while others prefer to intently watch every second. We have a room for you!
Based on a true story, a young girl lives with a rare, incurable disorder that leaves her unable to digest food. Despite the dire diagnosis, her devoted mom relentlessly searches for a way to save her beloved daughter. Everything changes in an instant when her daughter tells an amazing story of a visit to heaven after surviving a headlong tumble into a tree.
Her family and doctors become even more baffled when the young girl begins to show signs of recovering from her fatal condition. What happens next? You'll have to join us to find out!
Food, fun and films every first Friday!
Active Christians Today will hit the road on October 29 and 30 for an overnighter and Church Visit to Hicksville, Ohio. We will enjoy a bonfire and fall fun on Saturday night before traveling to Fort Wayne where we will stay in a hotel for the evening.
Saturday morning we will join First Church of Christ Hicksville (118 N Main Street, Hicksville OH 43526) for worship at 9 AM and 11 AM and a Sunday School Q & A time at 10:10 AM.
So what is a "church visit?" Well, Active Christians Today is supported by many individuals and churches. ACT makes monthly "church visits" to see our friends and supporters. These visits allow us to answer questions about our ministries, meet students who are supported by these churches and let individuals know about the opportunities we have on our campuses.
The cost for the weekend is only $25 per person which covers transportation, lodging and breakfast on Sunday morning at the hotel. Please bring extra money for dinner on Saturday night (depending on what we decide to do) and possibly lunch on Sunday.
