The Nine Lessons

Begin your Christmas Experience in Eureka Springs by attending a unique and beautiful event! The Nine Lessons celebrates its 100th Anniversary as a non-denominational Christmas service that has thrilled audiences over the past century with its compelling presentation of the story of Christ’s birth in alternating scripture, choral pieces, and carols. Performed by the Celebration Choir, an ecumenical music ministry under the direction of Artistic Director Benjamin Winn and Executive Director Sharon Parker, The Nine Lessons is free and open to the public with an offering taken up to benefit a local charity. This year’s recipient will be ECHO Village.
Celebrants will be Rev. Joseph Archibong of St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, Rev. Blake Lasater of United Methodist Church and Rev. John Gibson of First Presbyterian Church of Eureka Springs. Featured musical performers will be accompanists Ellen Stephenson and Marsha Havens, string students from Bentonville, AR with Violinist Judy Rownak of Fayetteville, AR, and the Jubilee Bell Ringers Handbell Choir, under the direction of Beverly Beard. Light refreshments will be served following the performance.
