Part of the Community by Raymond A. Foss

Something now expected
the town counting on us
this congregation, this people
to more than just show up

While we raise funds
for the work of the church
smiles and conversations
with the confections we sell

A tithe in mission
giving back part of our wealth
beyond ourselves for service
our neighbors in need as well

Lots of time and energy
coming together as one
many hands making the work lighter
smiles on their faces
enjoying the labor’s result

Out in the world
part of this community
offering a smile in Christ’s name
at the end of the day’s labor
reaping far more than we give
