Our Bible Study in the Book of James continues and we are excited as we will complete the entire book by the end of the semester. There is always joy studying the Word of God!
Many of our students are sharing with us in a daily devotion, prayer and Bible reading challenge. The challenge concludes on April 8. The goal is simple - to develop a habit of Bible reading and prayer! Those students who have completed at least one of the two 21 day challenges will be invited to join in a FREE sit down celebration dinner this month. It is fantastic to watch as ACT’ers become accountability partners for each other.
We had a great time at our Game Night last month. Sometimes it is fun to just enjoy board games, card games and video games. The evening concluded with a special visit to UT's Spirit Rock.
Our Spring Semester Coin Wars challenge concluded and we were able to write a nice-sized check to Caleb to help out as he has fought lymphoma. He has been forced to take an extended leave of absence due to treatment. All proceeds have been donated to Caleb to help with his substantial personal and medical expenses related to his leave of absence.
We had a time of fun, fellowship, learning and growth during a retreat weekend to “Hoosierland” in March. We began in Indianapolis and then traveled to Bloomington on Saturday. We toured the Indiana University campus, got to hang out with one of our students who is taking part in a internship there and enjoyed hearing devotions from all of the students who traveled with us. We ended up going through a major snowstorm while there which only added to the fun!
Saint Patrick's Day is one of the biggest bar and party nights at Bowling Green State University and we used it for a special outreach. ACT UT and ACT BG joined forces to reach out to the thousands of students pass by the front of the ACT BG Campus House. We served hot "PADDY CAKES", delicious Paddy Day snacks, provided rides to students from the bars (to keep the inebriated off the roads), had indoor and outdoor games, music, and more. We want to love our BG neighborhood like Saint Patrick loved his neighborhood, with words and action.
God continues to do a great thing through the ministry of Active Christians Today and we thank you so much for your support!
