Active Christians Today at the University of Toledo continues our tradition of celebrating Christmas Eve a little "early." Because the majority of our students will be home over the winter break, we hold our Christmas Eve service on the last Sunday night worship of the season at 6:30 PM December 8 at the UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606).
There are any number of traditions that make the Christmas holidays special to all of us: traveling to visit family, opening gifts around the Christmas tree, joyful dinners and so much more. But Christmas just is not complete without a telling of the original nativity story and "Silent Night" sung by candlelight at at Christmas Eve worship.
We invite you and your friends to join us this year for our special Christmas Eve Sunday Night Worship Encounter.
Our service includes an inspirational telling of the Christmas story and group singing of the traditional carol "Silent Night" in candlelight.
Join us in this much-loved twice yearly event as we pass out dozens of donuts to exam-weary students in the lobby of the library December 8 (7:30 PM after our Christmas Eve Service) and December 9 (7 PM).
If you have an ACT shirt, wear it. However, the goal of the giveaway is NOT to promote ACT. Our goal is to be servants serving together. We will not pass out advertisements, brochures or anything. If someone asks about us, of course we will talk but that is not our main goal.
We will pass out donuts on Sunday night until we are done!
We will return on Monday night at around 7 PM to conclude our giveaway with another few dozen donuts.
Come and share the joy of giving with us!

Part of our ACT UT 2019 Fall Retreat weekend included hiking at Oak Openings Metropark. We spent some time in the sand dunes working through the Daily Examen - a way to consider where we have been and where we are going in our journey of faith. The weather was perfect and the scenery reminded us of what a great Creator we serve!
We had some good, messy fun at our annual Messy Twister night at the Active Christians Today University of Toledo Campus House! It was great to welcome ACT Bowling Green State University to the festivities in what was truly a perfect night for getting covered in shaving cream from head to toe!
Messy Twister is Twister with a twist! Each of the Twister circles will be filled with tempera paint and shaving cream... leading to a MESS!
