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.
This Weeks Activities:
Coffee With Chris
(Every Wednesday during the semester from 8am - Noon @ the Starbucks in the MU Student Center)
Chris Roberts will be @ the MU Student Center Starbucks from 8am - Noon for some coffee & uplifting fellowship every Wednesday morning. Feel free to stop by & see him.
Wednesday Night Bible Class
(Wednesday, December 5 @ 7pm @ the 26th St. church of Christ)
The new teaching quarter has officially started & with it we begin our annual Q & A class entitled, “You’ve Got Questions, God Has Answers”. In order for this format to work, I need questions from you. You can give them to me anytime & by any means (written down, text, call, e-mail, etc.). There is a Question Box in the Herd4Christ room. Rest assured, I will keep all questions anonymous.
Last Wednesday, we split into groups & I asked YOU some questions. I want to allow our last 2 questions to be answered by the respective groups. The questions were as follows:
- How do you know the Bible is really God’s Word & not just some man-made book? If the Bible is God’s Word, why are there so many discrepancies?
- I’ve messed up far too much. Why would God possibly care about me? Will I stop wanting to sin after I become a Christian?
We will then discuss this question together:
-How do you explain baptism to someone who believes the baptism Jesus about is baptism with the Holy Spirit?
Take some time to think about the question yourself & be prepared to discuss it on Wednesday.
If you have any questions or need a ride, please contact Chris Roberts at Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
Dinner & A Movie Night
(Thursday, December 6 @ 7pm @ the Roberts' Home)
As this will be our last Dinner & a Movie of the semester, we want to make it a memorable one. If Andrew is able to make it, he’ll get his birthday pick of the movie. If not, we’ll vote on it by majority rule. For dinner, we’ll be providing chips & some dips, but invite you to bring any dips that you’re excited about as well. Enjoy good food & fellowship. It’s the perfect way to end your day.
On the menu this week: Potluck Chip & Dip Night.
If you need directions, have any questions, or need a ride please contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.
"White Elephant Gift Exchange" Devo
(Friday, December 7 @ 6pm @ the Home of Alan & Cindy Cole)
Our Devo this week will be our Annual White Elephant Gift Exchange @ the home of Alan & Cindy Cole. We'll meet at their home & enjoy some wonderful food, good singing & a lesson from God's word. After that, we'll have the gift exchange. If you're wondering what a White Elephant Gift Exchange is, you bring a gift with you ($5-$10 limit) to exchange. It can be bought or homemade. We then draw numbers to see who goes first. The first person picks a gift to open. The second person then has the option of taking the first gift or opening another. This is always a lot of fun. I hope you can all make it as you really don't want to miss this one.
If you have any questions, contact Chris Roberts @ Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com. I can't wait to see you there!
Sunday Bible Class & Worship
(Sunday, December 9 @ 9:45am & 6pm @ the 26th Street church of Christ)
Alan Cole will continue teaching our class on “The Christian Family”. Whether you’re about to start your own Christian Family or if you hope to in the future, this class will be of great value. Alan is a caring, knowledgeable & skilled teacher & I look forward to going through this class with him & hope you do as well.
Please take the time to be a part of this class & feel free to ask any questions you may have.
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 5: We are Herd4Christ, a campus ministry of the 26th Street church of Christ. This is the 5th CD we've 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 5th humble attempt at putting together some of our favorite songs on this CD. Please feel free to sing along with the songs on this CD. If you don't know some of them, take the time to learn them. You'll find a word sheet inside the cover. 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.
