Inaugural Canines for the Community in the Books!

The first annual Canines for the Community 5K run/walk with your dog is in the books. The church benefited in so many ways, most importantly we were able to share all the good things we do for the Topeka community. This included interviews on KSNT and WIBW, event flyers posted all around town and in Lawrence and building new partnerships with Topeka businesses. The money raised will allow the church to continue to help our diverse Topeka community. Many thanks are in order:
