Within the Northwest Neighborhood, evangelism and discipleship happens through Bible Studies, outreach events in the community, inviting people to attend Grace, and targeting different age groups and their interests.
Relationship building with young people and their parents occurs at Ferguson K-8 school and by door-to-door visitation.

Katallaso in Greek means reconciliation. At Katallasso Family Health Center (FHC), reconciliation is at the core of what they aspire to do. By building trust through aggressively sought out relationships, they work to help people reconcile with God, family, Church and neighborhood, using a biblical model. They believe that these four relationships, fully functioning together, allow people to live a fulfilled life and stretch a person beyond one's current capabilities. This is done through the vehicle of healthcare and wellness programs.

SLM has needed to expand its facilities for quite some time and hopes to have the project completed by September.
