Ballston Center Church


Music Ministry

Psalms 95:1 - O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
At Ballston Center Church our reformed corporate worship is both a great privilege and an act of covenant obedience to the Triune God, who graciously summons His people to come into His saving presence in worship. The Scriptures, particularly the Psalms, and the doctrinal standards of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church guide us in the use and composition of such hymns and spiritual songs.  Our singing, playing of musical instruments, training, and leading in the musical offerings to God are to be done with excellence as we all join in the praises and sing to the Lord.

Our music director, Mr. Luke Horst, has taught in New York State since 1987 and currently teaches general music and directs the elementary band and choir programs at Mayfield Central Schools. Luke has directed the Fulton/Montgomery Community College Choir and served as musical director for the college drama department. Mr. Horst received his BS in Music Education from The King's College with an emphasis in piano and his Master of Music in Choral Conducting from The State University of New York at Binghamton. He founded and conducts the Mayfield Community Choir each summer now in its fifteenth year. At Ballston Center he directs the choir, the men's chorus, and also plays the organ and piano.
Ballston Center’s corporate worship is enhanced by its music ministry. The Adult Choir joins voices to glorify God and minister to the spirit of the worshipers. Their songs are biblically accurate and help to edify believers in their faith. Rehearsals are Wednesday at 6:30 pm. All are welcome.

Our music ministry also includes a Children’s Ensemble, directed by Dr. Sonnie and Mrs. Patacsil. This choir participates in the service several times throughout the year and rehearsal is after the service as announced.

The Men’s Ensemble meets during the summer and often adds to the worship service. Our music ministry also includes an Adult Bell Choir and frequent instrumental contributions, including flute, trumpet, and violin.
