The Crawford Class
The Crawford Class welcomes everyone. Our curriculum is the lectionary readings for that Sunday and David Anderson is our primary leader. We read from several different versions of the Bible which can lead to spirited and great discussions! We support missions prioritized by the church and routinely help with church maintenance projects and needs. We partner with the Cooper Class to organize the Cogdell Food Pantry. Our class is named after Rev. W. C. Crawford, the father of one of the founding members of our class.

The Pair & Spares Class
The Pairs & Spares Class was Cogdell’s original young adult class, and is now a senior adult class. We use the Cokesbury Adult Bible Studies textbook and rotate among four teachers. We are a great support group for each other – sharing our joys and concerns. Our outreach focuses on Mission Waco projects.

The Pathfinders Class
The Pathfinders Class welcomes all ages and is a class of self-described nerds. Our studies range from read-throughs of books from the Bible (we have recently read Luke, Job, Acts, and Ecclesiastes) with discussion, to studies on Christian books such as “The Shack,” to discussions about other religions. During our discussions, many subjects come up and we weave them into our lessons. The CROP Walk is one of the major missions that our class supports, along with Operation Christmas Child and the Harvest Festival.

The Seekers Class
The Seekers Class began as a young marrieds’ class, and now we are mostly grandparents and all parents. Our Bible studies are unique because we do in-depth studies of scripture – verse by verse and chapter by chapter. Our teacher was a Marine pilot during the Vietnam conflict.

The Junior/Senior High Class
The Junior/Senior High Class is currently studying a book about how we have the power of the Holy Spirit to use in our daily lives. We start each session by asking youth about their previous week which often ends up with some really neat conversations about their interests and activities. Randall Roberts has taught this class for more than 30 years.
