Placeholder Image
A local church could gain national attention after a film crew with the Christian Broadcasting Network made an appearance at Temple Baptist Church to gather footage for a segment on the popular show “The 700 Club.”The film crew made an appearance Friday during a back-to-school movie night held at the church located just past the airport on Nashville Highway. The two movies shown were “Jonah” and “Roar” from the Christian Broadcasting Network’s popular series “Superbook.”While in town, the crew got footage of children posing with Gizmo, a robot from the “Superbook” series, and of local residents enjoying good food and fellowship.Members of the Nashville-based film crew said it’s common for them to travel across the region to get testimonials about how people came to find the Lord. The movie night caught their attention as a way smaller communities are spreading the gospel and doing positives things that impact children.The fact Temple Baptist was featuring two “Superbook” movies was also a big-ticket item for the Christian Broadcasting Network.“Fathers and mothers really like that ‘Superbook’ is educational, it provides a good lesson, but it also provides entertainment,” said photographer Edwin Padilla, who was filming for the network.“Superbook” chronicles events in the Bible’s Old and New Testaments in an animated series available on DVD. The series is billed as a way to teach children timeless moral truths and life lessons through the captivating, Bible-based adventures of two children and Gizmo, their robot friend.Producers don’t have a time yet on when the local segment will air on “The 700 Club.”
