• Sunday morning, Pastor Larry Workman preached a message using Daniel 3:12-18(KJV) titled “ How Far Will Your Faith Carry You?”.  When King Nebuchadnezzar wanted to be a god and made a statue in his image for the people to worship, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego would not worship this false god.  Even when they were thrown in the fiery furnace they believed in God and trusted him, and God was with them the whole time.  They stood for what was right.   Would you stand now for God?
