Sherwood movie will go national

May 18, 2006

Albany --  An inspiring movie, produced by an Albany church, will be released nationwide this fall.

Sherwood Baptist Church's second movie, "Facing the Giants," was a giant hit here in South Georgia. The film is about an underdog football team, with a luckless coach, that finds strength in God and learns lessons that will take them through life.

The movie was recently shown at two Christian film festivals and will be released in theaters across the country in September.

"It's a clean movie that's safe for the whole family. A family can laugh and cry and get caught up in the characters of the story, but also hear a message that will impact their lives and draw them into a walk with God," said Producer Stephen Kendrick.

The movie will be shown in nearly 400 theaters, just in time for football season.
