The latest news from Active Christians Today!
Despite the scattered showers, we had a wonderful evening filled with blessed encounters, uplifting conversation, joyful fellowship and a lot of hot dogs and hamburgers! Thank you to everyone who gave of their time and volunteered to help out for this fantastic outreach to the BG student community!
April Fool's Day was a great day at ACT UT! We held a special Scavenger Hunt planned by our ACT ladies for the ACT men. Our men were sent out across the city of Toledo following clues to see if they could complete the hunt created by our ladies.
Our groups challenged each other for the most number of "found locations" before returning to the ACT UT Campus House. Once the hunt was over, the ladies planned a wonderful pork chop dinner for everyone back at the ACT UT Campus House!
Why did the ladies planned the Scavenger Hunt for the men? This was the result of the Haiti Coin Wars challenge. The losers (the ladies) had to create a scavenger hunt for the winners. This is pay off day!
It was a great day and great fun and we want to do it again! Thank you to our ladies for a wonderful pay off for a great cause!

Saint Patrick's Day is one of the biggest bar and party nights at Bowling Green State University. On March 17, 2017 ACT UT and ACT BG joined forces to pass out green pancakes to the thousands of students pass by the front of the ACT BG Campus House on Wooster Street in Bowling Green. Jesus calls us to be servants and one of the ways we can show His love for all is through giving. No judging, no condemnation... just the opportunity to touch lives and plant seeds for the Kingdom. It was a joy to serve others on a snowy and eventful night. It was a great evening to be servants of Christ.
Our Active Christians Today 2017 Winter Retreat was a great experience. A warm February weekend in the Pokagon region of Indiana brought together students from the University of Toledo, Bowling Green State University, Ohio University and Ohio State University. We enjoyed a great keynote speaker, fantastic workshops, inspirational worship and fellowship together as we found out what it means to "PLAY!"
There is always something happening at ACT! A great example was our Game Night, Indoor Snowball Fight and then a great night to worship together with Active Christians Today Bowling Green. Our doors are open! Come and join us as we follow Jesus in discipleship, community and joy!
It was a night of fun and laughter! On January 20, 2017 we held our "Gingerbread Building Contest" at the ACT UT Estate.
Teams and individuals challenged to make the best gingerbread creation! We used graham crackers instead of gingerbread for the structure. We had many contributions for the decorations. The structures were created on a plywood base that was wrapped in parchment paper.
All building materials were provided in the kitchen. Most of the first half hour (and for some a little more) was spent building the structures using royal icing and the crackers. Everyone then turned to using the elements provided to decorate their structures.
The results ranged from the University of Toledo's University Hall to campsites, houses, a food booth and a special treat dedicated to the Cleveland Browns... There was a LOT of laughter throughout the evening!
Enjoy a video report of our Gingerbread Building Contest!
We enjoyed a wonderful and joyful Advent and Christmas season. Take a look back at the fun and get set for the New Year!
ACT UT and ACT BG joined together for and amazing Football Sunday party on February 5. Students from both the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University participated in all of the fun.
Our evening began with a special time hearing the testimonies of Believers who played in this year's big game. Testimonies were recorded during the weeks leading up to the game. These testimonies were extremely powerful. The video closed with a presentation of the Gospel and then... it was time for the game (and commercials!).
The ACT UT house was ready with three TVs so that everyone could watch the game - or the commercials as the case may be. Our basement was devoted to those who wanted to focus on the game.
UT students spent the afternoon preparing a vareity of sliders to keep the crew well-fed. Chips, dips and a variety of traditional football snacks were brought by many to add to our wide selection.
It truly turned out to be a great night! Everyone made their picks and then sat back to watch a truly amazing and historic football game. Fellowship, food and fun made for a wonderful FOOTBALL SUNDAY!
