He Is Coming Soon: Christmas with Iowa Wesleyan, a Service of Lessons & Carols

Iowa Wesleyan University invites the community to celebrate the holiday season with the time-honored tradition of Lessons & Carols, a service highlighting the students of the Iowa Wesleyan Music Department and music performers within the Southeast Iowa Community.

This sacred concert-service, entitled “He Is Coming Soon,” will be held live on Saturday, December 4, and Sunday, December 5, 2021, at 7 pm in the Iowa Wesleyan University Chapel Auditorium in Mt. Pleasant, IA.

Join us as we celebrate the holiday season with traditional and contemporary choral and instrumental music paired with scriptures that recount the Christmas story.

“Lessons & Carols is the culmination of an entire season of teaching and learning. It is a true blessing to have the return of something that is so traditional and special for our campus and community and be able to once again offer a live performance,” said Blair Buffington, Director of Choral Activities and Artistic Director of the event. “We want to share a message of hope and peace this year and music is the gift we have been given to deliver that message.”

There is no charge for attending the event, but reservations are required. Seats may be reserved by visiting the Iowa Wesleyan University web page iw.edu/carols or by calling (319) 385-6215. A free-will offering will be taken at the end of the service to benefit the students in the IW Music Department.
