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
(Wednesday, April 23 @ 7pm @ the 26th St. church of Christ)
I will continue teaching our class entitled "Waking the Dead". Jesus said in John 10:10, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” This is what living the Christian life should mean for us. We should be set free & fully alive. Yet we are also warned that the path to life is narrow & that few people will find it. We want to be among those who are searching & find the path to life. That is what we’re talking about this quarter. This Wednesday we will look at the Glory Hidden in Your Heart.
Please take the time to be a part of this class & invite your friends as well.
If you have any questions or need a ride, please contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
Dinner & A Movie Night
(Thursday, April 24 @ 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: Burgers.
If you need directions, have any questions, or need a ride please contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
Mid-Western Children's Home Work Retreat
(Friday, April 25 - Sunday, April 27 @ Mid-Western Children's Home in Pleasant Plain, OH)
Our annual Service Project Trip to Mid-Western is about a month away & I hope you’re excited about it. It's a chance to get away together & do some wonderful work for the Lord & practice the "pure & undefiled religion" spoken of in James 1:27. Our theme for the weekend is "Through Love Serve" (Galatians 5:13) & we’ll be joined by some folks from Fairmont State, WVU & Rio Grande.
We will meet at the church building on Friday April 25 at 5:00p.m. We’ll be providing transportation to Mid-Western as usual. The transportation will be 2 minivans. Shortly after everyone arrives and gets loaded up, we'll leave for Mid-Western Children's Home in Pleasant Plain, OH. Our plan is to get there Friday night, have a Devo, maybe play some games & get some rest.
We'll wake up Saturday, eat some breakfast & get to work. We'll have a break for lunch, work some more & then play some games & have dinner.
We'll wake up early Sunday, have breakfast & then worship together. We'll eat all our leftovers for lunch & then we’ll plan on a fun activity to do together.
Some ideas that we have done in the past are the Zoo ($15-$25), Aquarium ($23) & Creation Museum ($19.95 for groups of 15 or more, $29.95 without group discount, $39 with new zip line tour). Please let me know if you have a preference. We will then head home.
Here is a list of things you'll want to pack with you for the trip:
· Pillow and a sleeping bag
· Money for two fast food meals, Money for our activity. If money is a problem, let me know and we'll make arrangements to help out.
· Clothes to play in
· Clothes to work in (think cool outside and rainy)
· Clothes to come home in
· A pair of work shoes you can get muddy!
· A pair of shoes to wear while playing and on the trip home
· Plenty of socks!
· Work gloves (if you have them - if not, we'll bring extras)
· Towel, wash cloth, shower sandals, etc.
· Toiletries (deodorant, body wash, shampoo, etc.)
. Sun Screen
. Your Bible
In light of this list it may seem foolish to ask, but we need everyone to PACK LIGHT. In addition to each person's stuff, we also have to bring stuff for meals, games, and the songbooks. Please try to limit yourself to one medium sized bag plus your pillow and sleeping bag. I’ll have a sign-up sheet available on Wednesday & hope that you’re able to join us.
Sunday Bible Class & Worship
(Sunday, April 27 @ 9:45am & 6pm @ the 26th Street church of Christ)
For those not going to Mid-Western, Ben Allan will continue teaching a class entitled, “Not A Fan”. In the Gospels, Jesus never seemed too interested in fans. Is that how you define your relationship with Him? An "enthusiastic admirer"? Close enough to Jesus to get the benefits but not so close to require sacrifice?
He was looking for followers. Not just any follower though, but a... completely committed follower.
How would things change if you lived as Jesus lived, and loved the way He loved? Be there for class & become more than a fan.
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 pick you up at the City National Bank parking lot.
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.
