Join us on an unforgettable journey during Sunday Worship Encounter this season as we experience Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace with "The Star: A Journey to Christmas." Worship Encounter is every Sunday evening at 6:30.
Over two thousand years ago, a star burst through the darkness and signaled the long-awaited, yet still unexpected birth of a Savior. In addition to our worship series, we provide a daily devotional book to go along with the series (pick up your FREE copy under the Christmas tree in the blue room). There are seven readings each week covering each of our weekly themes.
Each week we focus on one aspect of the advent season. We will light a candle in our advent wreath, sing and worship God together.
Follow along in your devotional book and begin each new subject based on our worship theme dates:
- November 12: Hope; November 19: Love; November 26: Joy; December 3: Peace; December 10: Our Christmas Candlelight Service
Christmas can still truly give us a taste of the most wonderful time of world history. Jesus—the Messiah, the Savior—came as the light into the darkness and stress and pain of the world—our world. That world then, just like our world now, including our lives, needs the light to illuminate, clarify, guide, and heal. Christ’s coming brings that ultimate light through hope, love, joy, and peace. This is the journey of following the star to Christmas—and beyond!
This Advent season, you are invited to follow the star. It’s not just about the destination, but also about a journey we can take together to experience God’s love and grace in the midst of real life.
Join us for an unforgettable Advent series as we celebrate how Jesus’s birth changed everything and brings us hope, love, joy, and peace even today! Worship with us each Sunday night 6:30 PM at the ACT UT Campus House (2018 Bretton Place, Toledo 43606).
Student Leadership Team (SLT) officer nominations for our new term (Spring 2018 through Fall 2018) begin Sunday, November 1. Office positions include: President, Vice President, Prayer Team and Outreach/Missions Team. Nomination forms will be available at our regular events. Specific officer responsibilities and qualifications are listed on the nomination form. The SLT is responsible for planning all of our events, themes, organization and administration of Active Christians Today UT. Also, University of Toledo regulations require officer positions for all student organizations.
To be nominated for a position, a student must receive at least two nominations for the same position (nomination and second). Nominations may be placed in the drop box in the kitchen. One student cannot nominate someone for multiple positions. Nominations will close on November 10 at 7:30 pm. Scott and Karen will review all nominations and contact those who were nominated. Students may accept or decline their nomination. Once all students have accepted and/or declined their nomination, a ballot will be assembled.
Ballots will be made available for students on November 12. Students will have until November 29 to vote for the leadership team. Once voting is closed, Scott and Karen will tally votes, contact candidates and confirm the new leadership team. This leadership team will assume their new SLT officer positions beginning December 1. A meeting of our old and new leadership team will take place on December 3.
You do not have to be an officer to serve on our team! We have many students who are serving but have chosen not to take an officer role. We would love for you to be involved!

Whether you are a student, teacher, leader, member of another student organization - we would love to have you join us! We can all use prayer - the more, the better!
Prayer Walk takes place during Fall and Spring semester when the University of Toledo is in session. See our calendar for specific dates and times as it can vary each semester. To read more about our Prayer Walk, CLICK HERE!
Our student-led women's small group meets Thursdays, 7 PM at the Campus House (2018 Bretton Place Toledo 43606).
So what is it about? It is an opportunity for our women students to get connected, study God’s Word, and encourage each other in their walk with Christ.
The goal of Women’s Bible Study is to help women become fully devoted followers of Christ and to allow God's Word to inspire them to love, learn, and lead the present and future generations.
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!

ACT BG & UT traveled to Ann Arbor, Detroit and Dearborn to answer the question "Who is My Neighbor?" We reached out to the homeless in Ann Arbor, we worked with Central Detroit Christian Community Development and learned about work in Dearborn. It was an amazing weekend filled with prayer, fellowship, service and testimony!
