ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Sherwood Baptist Church has a nationwide following because of its movies.  And now, some television reality stars are evening among the followers.

If you watch TLC, you no doubt know the Duggar family, the stars of 19 kids and counting.

The Duggars boarded their huge bus and came to Albany to watch and take part in the filming of Sherwood's newest movie.

Jim Bob Duggar, 18 of his children, his daughter in law and his grandbaby are here in Albany.  Mom Michelle stayed behind in Arkansas with their newest baby.

Not only are they watching the movie production, they will be extras in some of the scenes.

Oldest son Joshua Duggar said "We have the crew here from TLC, it's 19 Kids and Counting on set here with us as well. Kind of getting behind the scenes, to get a really good sneak peek of that as well. So it will be really awesome."

The Duggars say they have seen all the Sherwood films, and are excited to be a part of the latest movie Courageous.

Their involvement in the Sherwood movie will be shown on their show 19 Kids and Counting.

The new season starts in August and the episode of the family in Albany will air in early September.

Those of you who watch the show know that the Duggars' newest baby, Josie, was born prematurely.

Joshua Duggar told me this afternoon that little Josie finally came home from the hospital last week and is doing well.
