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.

Reflections on the New Year (2013)
This Weeks Activities:
Wednesday Night Bible Class & Service Group Meeting
(Wednesday, October 29 @ 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 be looking at “Communicating God’s Message”. Please take the time to be a part of this class.
October is also our Service Group month & this Wednesday will be our last service group meeting. 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 30 @ 7pm @ the Roberts' Home)
We will eat an awesome home-cooked meal & then Toby will get his birthday movie pick. It's a great time to get away, relax & enjoy time among Christian friends. On the menu this week: Breakfast Food!
It is also Trick or Treat night, so if you want to come by early & help pass out candy, please feel free to do so. Please watch for kids as you drive as well.
If you need directions, have any questions, or need a ride please let me know.
If you need directions, have any questions, or need a ride please contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
The "Costume" Devo
(Friday, October 31 @ 6pm @ the Roberts' Home)
This Friday's Devo is our annual, ever-popular NOT-TO-BE-MISSED “Costume” Devo. It will be @ the Roberts' home at 6pm. Come dressed as your favorite character & enjoy some of the finest Devo food & fellowship this side of the Mississippi. There will be Chris’ world famous Chili (in mild, regular & Hot) & Katie’s world-renowned Santa Fe Cheese Soup (if you haven't tried this, you're in for a treat). There will be prizes given for the best costume. If you don't have a costume, we'd still love for you to come. Don't let that stop you from enjoying the Devo. After some good singing, prayers & a lesson from God's Word presented by Dathan, we'll enjoy a fun-filled evening of games that will include a scavenger hunt. I can’t wait to see you all there!
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. You can contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com. I hope to see you all there.
Sunday Bible Class, Worship & Family Dinner
(Sunday, November 2 @ 9:45am & 6pm @ the 26th Street church of Christ)
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 later part of chapter 4 & chapter 5.
After class we'll enjoy a time of worship together. Don't forget to be back for worship at 6pm. 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.
