Midnight Worship has changed locations from North Beltway Church to The Well Church.
Although the weekly event switched buildings, it is still at midnight every Friday and is available for Spiritual Formation Event credits.
Former Midnight Worship member Chistow Langston, who is now The Well’s worship minister, offered for Midnight Worship to use their building.
Jax Pimentel, sophomore engineering major from Abilene and student administrator for Midnight Worship said, “The Well was just extremely gracious and reached out to us first this year. They believe in what is happening here at Midnight Worship.”
Gabi Ramirez, marketing director of Midnight Worship, said they desire to have more McMurry University and Hardin Simmons University students become involved to unify a larger Abilene college community.
“Midnight Worship should not just be an ACU thing,” said Gabi Ramirez, the junior ad/PR major from San Antonio, said. “We are actively working on ways to do this, but no inspiration has struck yet; but we will get there.”
“We do not want to be someone’s church, but be an outlet for college students,” said Shane Sargeant, sophomore engineering major from Castroville, and student administrator for Midnight Worship.
Keely Smith, the volunteer coordinator, said every week is musically different.
“I think it’s just really cool just to see what maybe one song this week or maybe next week might speak to the same person both weeks or might speak to different people that are going through different situations,” said Smith, junior music major from Fort Worth.
A weekly volunteer for Midnight Worship, Nick Gonzales, said he regularly gets caught up in school and extracurricular activities, losing Jesus as his center.
“I feel like Midnight is such a blessing for me because it is just a time that all my friends come and worship,” said Gonzales, sophomore worship minister major from Odessa. “By the time I leave I feel reset and refocused.”
Midnight Worship is now considered an official club under Students Association this year.
