What we do: As a team, we carpool down to “The Rock”, Mission Waco’s afterschool program for elementary-age students (from local inner-city schools) and assist the Mission Waco staff. Our roles range from helping the kids with homework problems when they first arrive to supervising basketball or playground activities, reading stories to the youngsters or talking to a table as they eat the dinner provided. Our goal as a team is to create intentional and consistent relationships with each other, the staff of Mission Waco, and most importantly, the kids, so as to provide a safe and reliable environment for them to grow in as they continue to learn about themselves, their school subjects and God’s love for them. The kids love it when we come and it's a blast loving them and serving them!
