"THE GOD SQUAD" MUSIC MINSTRY  

We are a music ministry band from the Camp Hill United Methodist church. We play in prisons and rehab centers, and bring a musical message and testimony to lift up God's people.
 
We would like to offer our services to play at Methodist churches in the Susquehanna Conference (preferably closer to the Harrisburg area) on a Sunday morning. If you are looking for a new contemporary worship or if your musical team has a week off, we can provide the music. We can also provide the sermon / message and give testimony.
