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 22 @ 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 “Breaking the Barriers to Belief”. 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 23 @ 7pm @ the Roberts' Home)
We will eat an awesome home-cooked meal & then Colton will get his birthday movie pick (make it a good one, Colton). 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.
The "Maize" Devo
(Friday, October 24 @ 6pm @ the Roberts' Home & Cooper Family Farms)
This Friday, we will meet @ the Roberts’ Home for Dinner, singing, prayer & a lesson from God’s Word presented by Travis Huffman. Afterwards, we'll head to Cooper Family Farms for their “Field of Screams”, which is their haunted maze. We haven’t done the haunted version of the maze in awhile, but it should be a lot of fun. The price of admission is $10 & there are no discounts or reservations available. If the cost is a burden to you, please let me know. I don’t want it to keep you from enjoying the evening with us. 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.
Habitat For Humanity Service Project
(Saturday, October 25 from 8am - 3:30pm)
Our second service project for October is to work with the Huntington area Habitat For Humanity. There will be a morning crew (from 8:30am - 11:30am)& an afternoon crew (from 12:30pm - 3:30pm). When I first scheduled to do this, Marshall was playing a night game. They have since moved to the afternoon (thanks TV & scheduling folks). If you would like to be a part of this, but plan on going to the game, plan to be a part of the morning crew. If you’re not planning on going to the game, plan to be a part of the afternoon crew (or do both shifts). I will have a sign-up sheet available Wednesday (you can work either or both shifts). I would also love it if everyone would wear their Herd4Christ shirts. They will provide everything else we'll need.
I should know by Wednesday evening where we’ll be & what we’ll be doing.
We will plan on meeting at the church building at 8am & then carpool to the work site. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
Sunday Bible Class, Worship & Family Dinner
(Sunday, October 26 @ 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 chapter 4.
After class we'll enjoy a time of worship together. Plan to stick around after worship for our Family Dinner. 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.
