Our ACT Fall Retreat will be held at Delta Church of Christ in Delta, Ohio. We begin Friday at 6:30 through Sunday morning worship at Delta.
What is it all about?
Jesus calls us to REST!
On our RE:TREAT, we will focus on what it means to RE:ST. RE:ST restores and balances us. It brings us back to the center and helps us RE:SET our lives on what’s most important – our faith in God, caring for each other, and fostering relationships with those God has entrusted to us. Once we are able to do that, we are able to RE:NEW our lives with a new focus!
This weekend we will look to God's Word to help us see how we can discover God's call for us to rest in our own lives. We will pray, worship and seek God's guidance and discernment - and have a lot of fun, too!
There is NO cost for our retreat. Come for everything or just come for a part of the weekend... we would love to have you join us!
Sunday morning we will lead in worship at Delta including testimonies, music and more.
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!
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!
Join us every Wednesday evening at 5:30 for our FREE dinner followed by Bible Study at 7 PM. Our Fall Semester Bible Study will take us to the Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah. RE:build. RE:new. RE:store. It's all about the "RE's"!
The one theme that clearly emerges from the study of these books is that GOD KEEPS HIS PROMISES! We will see that God often uses people and events that no one would expect. Sometimes, the person that God uses may not even realize they are a part of God's plan. Could that be us? Could God use us this way?
When we are open to hearing God and seeing Him at work, we can thrive in Him! RE:build. RE:new. RE:store.
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.
Friday nights we welcome you to join our Small Group study "Jesus in the Real World."
We meet Fridays at 6:30 PM at the Active Christians Today UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606). Each week our group takes a case study and looks at it from a Christian perspective. How does faith play into real world situations? That's the question we attempt to answer each week.
At the core, our goal is to create an opportunity for our students to get connected, study God’s Word, and encourage each other in their walk with Christ.
With "Jesus in the Real World," our case studies take a tough situation and ask us to consider how our faith and Scripture applies. It allows us to use practical examples to build and grow our faith.
If you are interested in taking on one of our case studies, just show up! We would love to meet you and would love to hear your contribution to our weekly discussions.
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!
Possible topics include:
What if you received praise for something you felt was a failure? How do you respond?
Your Muslim friend wants to know if they will meet you in heaven.
Is it okay for a church to violate government policy or laws in order to worship together? When is it not?
A singer at your church simply isn't very good. How should the situation be handled?
When is a hug... no longer a hug?
An immigrant family finds shelter in a church. The police ask you to let them in to arrest and deport them. Would you? Should you?
Is it ever okay to follow the spirit of the law over the letter of the law? Why or why not?
Active Christians Today at the University of Toledo (ACT UT) gathers for worship at the ACT UT 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...

Join us on November 6, 2021 for the 21st Annual Barn Jam! The Weaver Family opens their property to this annual celebration filled with fun!
Barn Jam is our family friendly gathering which has been described as a "wedding reception without the wedding and the fancy clothes." It is a potluck so bring a dish to share! It includes so much more including a campfire, indoor snow storm, dancing, giant chess, ping pong, hayrides and so much more.
You might want to also bring a blanket for the hayrides!
Come and join us for a great time of fun and fellowship! Again, it's a potluck - so bring a dish to share!
The barn and the tent are heated - we are on whether it is rain, snow or moonlight!
Barn Jam is always a lot of fun and we would love to have you join us this year! Don't miss out on the fun and we'll see you in November!
Thanksgiving comes to Active Christians Today on Friday, November 12. We meet at 6 PM for a FULL Thanksgiving Dinner at the ACT UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606).
Our menu includes turkey, traditional bread stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie and apple pie.
We will sing Thanksgiving Carols around our faux fire, watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, share our blessings and spend time in prayer and thanksgiving.

Following our Thanksgiving celebration we will immediately move to Christmas! We'll set up our Christmas trees and decorate the campus house for the holiday season.
Plan now to be a part as we get set to celebrate the holiday season in style!
