Our annual ACT UT Christmas Party is Friday, December 9 at 7:30 PM. It is a joyful evening full of laughter!
Wear an Ugly Christmas Sweater (or any ugly sweater) for our Ugly Sweater contest.
Bring a "White Elephant" Gift for our gift exchange. What is a White Elephant Gift Exchange? Bring a wrapped gift, generally a crazy and cheap gift or a re-gift. One at a time we will open each gift. The next person will be able to either "steal" the previous gift or open a new one! The goal? To walk away with the best present.
Bring a pair of Crazy Christmas socks to exchange. Fill each sock with a variety of nice gifts. These gifts are real gifts - unlike the white elephant exchange. The socks will go under the tree and we will all pick a pair and open them together.
Food for grazing will be available along with hot chocolate.
Don't miss out on all of the fun!
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 11 at ACT UToledo (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 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. Hermitage Hills Estate was built in 1995 as a replica of President Andrew Jackson's Hermitage in Nashville with plenty of space for our entire group, four fireplaces, four ponds, hiking trails and more!
The trail to the ACT Campus House is located immediately across the street from the University of Toledo Parking Area 13 (between Bowman Oddy and Honors housing).
Note that the sign says "Follow the Path" so, follow!
You will head down the hill (to your left) following the mulch path to the back of the Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo OH 43606).
Additional signs will guide you to the entrance of the Campus House!
Wondering what ACT is all about? Listen as our students share about Active Christians Today at the University of Toledo. Our students share a little bit about what ACT means to them:
Our ACT UT 2022 Fall Retreat was held October 21-23, 2022.
We want to thank Delta Church of Christ for hosting us for the weekend. It was a weekend filled with activities with our theme: FEARLESS.
We learned what it meant to be fearless as we studied accounts in the life of Daniel. We discovered and discussed how the world wants to keep us quiet by "naming" us and "shaming" us and our faith. We saw how fear appears in our lives, and how God wants us to react to it. We encouraged one another this weekend to boldly step out in our faith.
In addition to our discipleship opportunities, our students also participated in service projects. ACT UToledo helped with a funeral luncheon followed by leading in games for the Delta Church of Christ Fall Kids Festival.
The weekend also included a hike on the Stewardship Trail in the Maumee State Forest plus a lot of fun and games.
We have reason to be FEARLESS. We all want to be able to live our lives with confidence, knowing that whatever steps we take, our Lord and Savior will be right there with us. It was exciting to experience these things together and help each other become FEARLESS!
