Join us for our ACT UToledo Winter Retreat beginning Friday night February 17 and ending Sunday February 19. We will be traveling to Montgomery, Michigan.
The cost for the weekend is $40 and includes lodging, food, devotional materials and more! Sponsors are available for those who need help covering the retreat fee (no one should miss out due to $!!!).
What is it all about?
This weekend we will look to God's Word to help us see how we can discover God in all areas of our own lives. We will pray, worship and seek God's guidance and discernment - and have a lot of fun, too!
You are invited to join us at Hermitage Hills Estate, a Greek Revival mansion which graces 64 acres of rolling glacial till in rural south central Michigan.

Active Christians Today at the University of Toledo (ACT UToledo) gathers for worship at the ACT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606) each Sunday night at 6:30 PM. We meet in "The Refuge" (the basement of the Campus House!). Come as you are!
Over the course of this semester, we will encounter worship together as we praise God through song and with messages drawn from both the Old and New Testament. Above all, we will seek to cultivate our life together in Christ at ACT UT by growing stronger in worship and community as a campus ministry family. Join us Sunday night at 6:30!
Come and worship with us! Anyone and everyone is welcome!
Sunday Night Worship Encounter! You never know when the Lord will change your life...
This week Bible Study has moved to Friday night at 7 PM. As we continue through Matthew, we will look this week at the question from Matthew chapter 3: "Was Jesus baptized twice?"
Our weekly studies are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Each focuses on the big issues around faith and to unpack what it means to grow as a Believer and learn the basics of Christianity through ALL of God's Word.
The most important part of the evening is our discussion. This is your chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic. There's never an obligation to say anything. And there's nothing you can't say! It's an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
During the year we do topical studies along with in-depth study of Scripture. In every case, we dive into God's Word to discover truths applicable to our world. Our studies have three things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Wednesday nights are busy at the ACT UToledo House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606)! We begin with our Free Dinner at 5:30 PM. If class or your job is off later, no worries! We'll save some for you!
We prepare a special and sometimes unique meal each Wednesday. We serve everything from the typical (pizza, tacos) to the off-beat (breakfast for dinner, cereal). We will also grill out when possible including everything from pork chops to hot dogs and burgers!
Bible Study begins at 7:00 PM. Are you hungry to grow in your faith? We're the place to be on Wednesday nights! We dive in deep to Scripture to discover what God has to say to us.
Come join us!
