Football Sunday February 13


ACT UT and ACT BG join together for Football Sunday February 13, 2022 at 5PM! Bring a dip to share as we share in a time of worship followed by the biggest game of the year!

You are welcome to join us Sunday afternoon after church to prepare a variety sliders, snacks and beverages for the evening. Our "Football Sunday" presentation at 5:30 PM followed by THE GAME!

Our time of worship will include hearing the testimonies of Believers who are actually playing in the Super Bowl. Testimonies are recorded during the weeks leading up to the game. These testimonies in the past have been extremely powerful. The worship time will close with a Gospel presentation and then - it is time for the game (and commercials!).

We will share sliders, chips, dips and a variety of traditional football snacks. Don't miss out on the fun!

2021 ACT Fall Retreat Worship and Celebration!

Active Christians Today UToledo and Bowling Green State University joined together for a wonderful weekend retreat hosted by Delta Church of Christ. We closed out the weekend together with Delta's congregation and celebrated new life in Christ with three baptisms as our students led worship in song, testimonies and Word. What a close to the weekend!

Bible Study "Ezra/Nehemiah" Wednesdays at 7 PM


Join us every Wednesday evening at 5:30 for our FREE dinner followed by Bible Study at 7 PM. Our Spring 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.

Dave Warner Goes Home to be with the Lord

Remembering Dave Warner

My heart is heavy with the passing of my friend Dave Warner. I had the joy and honor of serving with him for the first year on staff with Active Christians Today. From our first church visit together (pictured here), ACT Fall Retreat, Christmas parties, Winter Retreat to the Chivalry Dinner and everything in between, I had the opportunity to marvel at this man who was truly a servant leader.

His joy and passion consumed him and I saw his love of student ministry expressed in everything he did. 
I suppose my greatest joy was spending a week on the mission field with him along with a group of wonderful students. I got to see him in action as he shared the gospel, sat with children and... sat with me by the fire in the evening talking theology and the future of Active Christians Today. We laughed at the foibles of ministry, the joys and the sorrows. It was a time I will treasure forever.

What I didn’t know until later was truly how much he loved to serve and how much potential he saw in campus ministry. While working at the ACT University of Toledo campus house I found a letter he wrote that expressed this in no uncertain terms. In it he said, “I believe with all of my heart that campus ministry plays a very significant role in the future of the church. Our future business leaders, educators, government leaders and politicians, media types, mothers and fathers, and future church leaders will come out of our universities. The potential of sending international students back into the cultures of countries closed to Christianity as missionaries is enormous.” It is obvious how much he valued the ministry that together with our students still reaches the world every day.

I admit I am greatly saddened to see him leave the earthly realm. However, my faith tells me I will get to strike up a conversation with him again. That brings me great joy. 

Well done, thou good and faithful servant. Well done. Love ya, Dave!
