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
(Wednesday, September 17 @ 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 look at the formula for impacting our world. Please take the time to be a part of this class.
If you have any questions, or need a ride, please contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com
Dinner & A Movie Night
(Thursday, September 18 @ 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 Nuggets & Friends.
If you need directions, have any questions, or need a ride please contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
"Lazer Tag" Devo
(Friday, September 19 @ 6pm @ the 26th Street church of Christ building & Billy Bob's Wonderland)
This Friday’s Devo will begin at the church building where we'll have dinner, singing, prayer & a lesson from God’s Word. We'll then go to Billy Bob's Wonderland for some Lazer Tag & games. Plan to bring along at least $5 to pay for your game (if this is problem, let me know and we'll take care of you). You may want more for arcade games, air hockey, etc. I look forward to seeing you all on Friday. It should be a blast!
If you have any questions or need a ride, please contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
Sunday Bible Class & Worship
(Sunday, September 21 @ 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 last part of James 1, verses 21-27.
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.
Walk to End Alzheimer's
(Saturday, October 4 @ 9am @ the Big Sandy Superstore Arena)
Our first service project for September is the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s is a truly terrible disease that affects so many, particularly the elderly. If you’ve ever had someone you love suffer with it, you know exactly what I mean. It takes away your memories & your ability to function.
The Alzheimer’s Association is putting on this walk in Huntington in an effort to raise both money & awareness of the disease. The Allan family has put together a team for the walk & would love your participation. Check-in for the walk is @ 9am & the walk itself begins @ 10am. They are also in need of volunteers the day of the walk, so if you would like to help, but aren’t really interested in walking, you can help by volunteering.
We also would like to help the fundraising efforts. I have several bracelets that say End Autism on them. They sell for $2 & all proceeds go to the Alzheimer’s Association. I will plan to be set up in the MU Student Center with some of these in an effort to raise money.
Even if all you can do is participate in the walk, please do so. It means a lot to see young people in support of the cause.
If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
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.
