Adult Sunday School
GCC adult Sunday school class meets each Sunday morning at 9.45. Paul Vollrath leads the class through a study of a book of the Bible sharing his wealth of biblical knowledge and biblical translation. Informal discussion of biblical content is a focus of the study.
Paul Vollrath has dedicated his life in service to the Lord. Paul grew up in Elgin, Illinois and received his education from Concordia Teachers' College in Chicago. Certified to teach English as a Foreign Language, Paul continued his education in linguistic studies at UT-Arlington. Paul also received an MA in Religion from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. Paul served in missionary roles 45 years, living in Papua New Guinea 29 years along with his wife and two children, as a teacher and then as a Bible translator for Wycliffe Bible Translators. Paul and his wife Karen spent many years studying the Hewa language and people, ministering to them, and translating Scripture into Hewa. Retiring from international missions, Paul and Karen continue their missionary calling by serving faithfully at GCC and in the Bellville community.
