New Philadelphia Moravian Church is committed to the Christian education, spiritual formation, and nurture of its adult members, too. A variety of classes are offered which enable persons to learn and grow in faith, to discern God’s will for their lives and to live in the world as Christian disciples. Adult Sunday School Classes provide a choice of studies and study methods as well as providing a network of fellowship and support.
