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:

Wednesday Night Bible Class & Service Group Meeting
(Wednesday, February 21 @ 7pm @ the 26th St. church of Christ)
We’re continuing our annual question & answer class entitled "You've Got Questions, God Has Answers". I appreciate the questions I've received so far & hope that you will give me more. You can give them to me anytime & by any means (written down, text, call, e-mail, etc.). We also have a Question & Answer Box on campus in the Student Center. Please take the time to be a part of this class & invite your friends as well. Rest assured, I will keep all questions anonymous.
These are the questions we’ll be discussing this Wednesday:
- According to Luke 12:41-48, are there degrees of Heaven & Hell?
- Why is Heaven described with such fancy things (pearly, gold, etc.) but we are taught not to want those things on earth, so why does it matter if Heaven is fancy or not?
Take some time to think about the questions yourself & be prepared to discuss them on Wednesday.
Please also plan to stick around after class to be a part of our “Timothy” Service Group. February is our Service Group month, so we will send out cards to those having birthdays or needing encouragement.
If you have any questions or need a ride, please contact Chris Roberts at Herd4Christ@Yahoo.com.

Winter Olympic Devo: Week 3
(Friday, February 23 @ 6pm @ the 26th Street church of Christ building)
This Friday’s Devo will be @ the church building @ 6pm. After a fine meal of homemade Indian food, we’ll enjoy some singing, prayer & a lesson from God’s Word. Afterwards, we’ll continue the Herd4Christ Olympic Games & have our last Medal Ceremony.
We have 3 different countries represented: Chacopia, Northern Canada & The Vatican Popes (Vati-Popes for short). At the end of 2 weeks of competition, Chacopia is leading the points race with 14 points, Northern Canada is close behind with 13 points & the Vati-Popes have 9 points. You gain points by winning medals: Gold = 3 points, Silver = 2 points, Bronze = 1 point. It’s still anyone’s game as we go into our last week of competition. If you couldn’t make the Games the last 2 weeks, you’ll be placed on a team this week. There will be 3 different events (2 individual & 1 team) that will take place, with medals & points awarded for the winners. At the conclusion of the Olympics this Friday, custom-made Gold, Silver & Bronze Medals will be awarded to the teams according to their overall score. This should be a lot of fun & I hope that you can take part in it.
This Friday the events set to take place will be:
-Biathlon 3.0 (Shooting/Archery Combined Biathlon)
-Bible Bowl (30 questions covering 1 Cor. 9, 2 Tim. 4 & Heb. 12)
Come & enjoy a great evening of friendly competition with your Christian brothers & sisters.

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.

*Also on CD by request
From the inside cover of Volume 4: We are Herd4Christ, a campus ministry of the 26th Street church of Christ. This is the 4th CD we've put together as a group. We have been truly blessed with some vocally talented students who were willing to lend their God-given talent to this project. I'm very pleased with how the songs turned out. Not only are they beautiful, but they were sung from the heart by those who truly love God. Feel free to sing along. If there are songs you don't know, take the time to learn them. You'll find a word sheet inside the cover. It's my hope that these songs will help to lift your spirit. Many thanks to all who made this CD possible.
