A ministry of the 26th Street church of Christ on the campus of Marshall University
Welcome to the official website of Herd4Christ, a campus ministry of the 26th Street church of Christ on the campus of Marshall University in Huntington, WV. Look through our site & take the time to see some of the things we do. Make sure to check out the website for the 26th Street church of Christ as well. You won't find a more sound & loving congregation of Christians anywhere. If you're visiting Marshall on a Sunday or Wednesday, take the time to stop by & worship with us at 26th Street. We'd love to get to know you better & let you get to know us better as well. We provide rides to all worship services & activities for all students needing transportation. If you have any questions whatsoever, you can contact our campus minister, Chris Roberts, at Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
Reflections on the New Year (2013)
This Weeks Activities:
Wednesday Night Bible Class & Service Group Meeting
(Wednesday, October 15 @ 7pm @ the 26th St. church of Christ)
I will continue teaching our Wednesday night class on the topic of "Becoming a Contagious Christian". Evangelism is such an important part of being a Christian, but it can also be incredibly frustrating & intimidating for us. So often, we’re just not sure how to do it or be effective at it. We’ll be looking at ways that we can find our strengths & be able to evangelize in a way that is natural to us & those we are trying to reach. This Wednesday we will continue to look at how to tell our story as we take some practical steps to do so. Please take the time to be a part of this class.
October is also our Service Group month. Service Groups get together every week for a month & send out Birthday Cards, Get Well cards & see if there is anyone in the congregation who could use some encouragement. Please plan to stay after class for a bit to be a part of this good work.
If you have any questions, or need a ride, please contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com
Dinner & A Movie Night
(Thursday, October 16 @ 7pm @ the Roberts' Home)
We will eat an awesome home-cooked meal & then we will watch a really good movie voted on by majority rule. It's a great time to get away, relax & enjoy time among Christian friends. On the menu this week: Chicken Tortilla Soup & Cheese Quesadillas!
If you need directions, have any questions, or need a ride please contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
WVCYC Campus Retreat
(Friday, October 17 - Sunday, October 19 @ WVCYC)
Our Campus Retreat at West Virginia Christian Youth Camp is this weekend. We will be joining campus ministries from OSU, WVU & Fairmont State. I would like to leave ASAP on Friday, October 17. I will once again have a sign-up sheet available Wednesday night for those interested in going & what time they would be able to leave on Friday. The plan is to get there Friday evening & leave Sunday afternoon in plenty of time to get back for evening worship services (Dathan is preaching that night, & many of you will be involved in leading the service). The only cost you will incur is the price of a meal on the road. All meals & lodging will be provided for you at the camp. I would love for you all to be able to come as it promises to be a great & uplifting weekend. Please let me know by Wednesday evening following Bible class if you will be able to make it. The following is the schedule complete with speakers & menu:

Sunday Bible Class, Worship & Family Dinner
(Sunday, October 19 @ 9:45am & 6pm @ the 26th Street church of Christ)
For those not going to the retreat, Alan Cole will continue teaching our class on the book of James. It is such a wonderful & practical book of the Bible. We have much to learn from it & I hope you will take the time to be a part of this class. Last week’s class was wonderful & this week promises to be the same. We will be looking at the second half of James chapter 3 (starting with verse 13) & going into chapter 4.
After class we'll enjoy a time of worship together. Don't forget to be back for worship at 6pm. Dathan Jobe will be speaking & I look forward to hearing his message from God’s Word. If you need a ride to church, please contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com, so that we can arrange to pick you up.
Learn to sing "Lord Be There"
This is a beautiful song & one that I would like us all to learn to sing. It requires four distinct parts (Soprano, Tenor, Alto & Bass). I've included each individual part below. Sing along with the part you wish to learn & we can sing it together at devotionals. To hear what it sounds like with all the parts together, click on it under Volume 2 on the left of your screen.

From the inside cover of Volume 3: We are Herd4Christ, a campus ministry of the 26th Street church of Christ. This is the third CD we have put together as a group. While we are not professional singers, we do love to praise our Lord with our voices as He would have us to do. I hope that you enjoy our third humble attempt at putting together some of our favorite songs on this CD. If you don't know some of them, take the time to learn them. It is our hope that these songs will help to lift your spirit. I would like to thank all our singers. This wouldn't be possible without you.
