The CITG Praise Band leads the congregation in song for the 9 AM Sunday Service. This group of singers and musicians led by Dr. Sunny Knable perform contemporary pieces such as gospel spirituals, rock and roll and contemporary ballads. Sometimes a more traditional piece is played during the offertory.
The Praise Band’s instrumental ensemble often includes a piano, electric bass, guitar and drums; however, we welcome the opportunity to incorporate other instruments. This group is perfect for anyone who wants to share their musical gift but cannot commit to attending every Sunday.
Rehearsals are generally held every Sunday at 8 AM. Singers perform on a rotating basis. Musicians perform more often. During the period of quarantine, the Praise Band has been the primary musical group, meeting at 8:30 am to rehearsal before the 10 am service.
