Community invited to ‘A Night in Bethlehem’

BLUEFIELD — Bluefield Community Church held its 4th annual “A Night in Bethlehem” in Bluefield City Park.

It took about 20 hours and eight men to set to set up the little town of Bethlehem display, Faye Louthan a church member said.

The church members displayed what Bethlehem would have been in biblical times.

The set included a bakery, pottery shop, carpentry shop, scroll shop, inn and stable.

Children will receive a bag at the entrance and be able to make a craft at each shop  in the town. The tour then ends at the stable where Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus stayed. Louthan said.

“The Parks and Recreation Department is very appreciative of the church. It is a great exhibit to go a long with the Holiday of Lights display. This is what the holiday season is all about, bringing joy to people and we encourage everyone to come out and support the community,” Director Dwight Godwin said.

The night in Bethlehem will also be available to walk through today, Dec. 20 and 21 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

    Lights in the southern end of the tunnel illuminate an odd design beside the catwalk near the left lane of the northbound tube of the East River Mountain Tunnel that transports I-77 from Virginia into West Virginia. Two firefighters who made the initial assault through the total darkness of the soot and smoke-filled tunnel left those marks as they slid their arms along the catwalk wall on their journey back to the light.
