West Avenue Elementary

Calvary partners with staff and students at West Avenue Elementary School (15th & West Ave.).  West Avenue is part of the Waco Independent School District and serves students K-5th in the Sanger-Heights Neighborhood.  You may get involved as a Reading Club Leader or a Mentor.

Reading Club Leaders meet with 2-3 students once a week during the students' lunch period.  During this 35 minutes, the leader and children read grade level books together to improve literacy.

Mentors work with students in a classroom setting to help the student improve academically and provide accountability for the student.  Mentoring sessions are typically less than one hour per week for the academic year.

Calvary community Garden

Over the years, our community garden has expanded to meets the needs of our neighbors. Our members spend time in our garden growing food for our church and neighbors because we believe God has given us the responsibility and the privilege to care for the earth and to give away the gifts from our labors in the garden to others so that we may glorify Him. If you would like to know more on how to get involved in this ministry, email
