Getting a Bite to Eat (W1:D4)

In keeping with a tradition that began on the set of FACING THE GIANTS, the Sunday school classes from Sherwood Baptist Church are once again the catering team for the Sherwood film crew as they work on FIREPROOF. Providing both lunch and dinner, the many different classes do the same work as Hollywood catering companies—except without the fanfare and the pay!

“We have quite a few Sunday schools that are helping out,” says Irene Hatcher, a member of Sherwood since 1969. Her senior adult class joined with another class to serve lunch during the first week of filming.

Having been a part of FACING THE GIANTS, Irene and her team weren’t going to miss out on the chance to serve the people working on FIREPROOF.

“Our church has received lots of emails about how FACING THE GIANTS made a difference in people’s lives,” she says. “A lot of people go to movies that don’t come to church.”
