Rev. Frank Rahm
Hello and thank you for visiting our webpage. I hope this site has been helpful to you and I look forward to meeting you in person.
The First United Methodist Church of Sachse is a place where you, your family, and your friends will be welcomed immediately upon your arrival. From the first moments you arrive, you can expect to be treated with love, respect and friendship.
Next, you can expect to hear about God’s grace, the love of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Then, you can expect to be invited to be a part of the community through Sunday school, worship, missions and whatever other ways you sense that God might be calling you. You are invited to become involved in any or all of these things at your own pace.
I know all of this is true, because that was the experience enjoyed by me and my family when we first came here.
Once in a while, life offers us an event or an adventure or a fright or an excitement, and when we tell the story later, we hear ourselves saying, "I guess I was in the right place at the right time." Once there was a person who was right where God needed him to be because his neighbor was in trouble. His neighbor had been robbed and beaten and abandoned on the side of the road. When we tell that story today, we call that person, "The Good Samaritan."
Once in a while, God puts us in place to serve in the same way.
See you soon.
