Churches and campus ministries around Tuscaloosa gathered Tuesday for a night of worship called Worship in the Round. The event was held at the Tuscaloosa River Market and first started in 2018.

The River Market was flooded with college students singing and praying with one another. Music was preformed by worship teams from various churches in the Tuscaloosa area.

First Baptist Church college pastor R.J. Voorhees said the purpose of this night is to create unity between the churches in the area.

“Worship in the Round is really a gathering to encourage us, especially during Holy Week, to go and love well, share our faith, and just represent Christ,” Voorhees said.

“We as a body of Christ are trying to come together more and show that we are unified. And the enemy wants to create division between Christians and non-Christians, but we will not reflect that division. We will stand together unified to show the world that we can be unified despite some differences between us,” said worship leader Justin Tharpe.

Worship in the Round is an annual event.
