The original decorations of the nativity scene (Mary, Joseph, and the manger scene) at the First United Methodist Church off 8th street, were first placed around the year 2000, right after the Isle of Lights was first established. Ray Rosebaugh was the original caretaker, making sure it was up and running each year and that all the lights were in working order. Over the years, church members have purchased additional characters for the scene, with the last two additions coming in over the last couple of years. Charles Axtell and Troy Boucek put up the display this year and Charles and Barbara Axtell recently replaced the original lights with new, brighter and more colorful LED lights. “ It is a beautiful gift to the people of Beloit and Mitchell County, and the church is proud to make this happen each year,” said Pastor Keith Anglemyer.
