Dave Anderson and Roger Walck (joined Dave March, 2013) are available to lead weekend worship services and weeknight "worship concerts".  Dave points out that their evening presentations are not performances in the sense of entertainment.  Since Scripture says that "God inhabits the praises of His people", Dave and Roger believe that God's Spirit is very present in the midst of their singing and speaking. 

The congregation is invited to join Dave and Roger in long as it's the same song.  The "worship concert" will  include hymns, gospel songs, old Sunday School songs, and what Dave calls "message songs".
