Welcome to Common Ground!

Common Ground Recovery Community is dedicated to supporting individuals and families recovering from addiction, abuse, mental illness, loss and the hurts and hang-ups of life. Common Ground Recovery Community offers programs that educate about addiction and recovery, small groups that provide support, Bible studies that deepen our faith, and worship experiences that inspire hope and healing.

We are a multi-location recovery ministry now meeting in three locations in the Berks County area.

Grounded in God’s promises, we are a progressive faith community that seeks healing and wholeness through worship, prayer, meditation, and mindfulness for one another.  We welcome everyone regardless of race, sexual identity, social or economic background; in fact we believe that our diversity reflects the tapestry of God’s creation.

We’re Common Ground Recovery Community. And we’d love to spend some time with you.

Why Common Ground?

Where God’s grace embraces our brokenness

We are a spiritual recovery community that embraces the worthiness and the brokenness of us all. Many, but not all of us, are part of the 12-Step communities and together we are exploring the “common ground” that lies beneath the 12-steps and our Christian faith.

As Saint Paul reminds us:

“But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ… For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:4-5,8)

What a joy it is to know that there is nothing we can do to make God love us more; and there is nothing we can do that will make God love us less. God loves us! Our call to love God and neighbor is our response to God’s steadfast love for us and all of creation.

Grounded in God’s promises we are a progressive faith community that seeks healing and wholeness through worship, prayer, meditation, service, and love for our neighbor and ourselves. If you’re not sure what you believe, that’s ok. We’re not all at the same place in our spiritual journeys either, so you will fit right in!

In affirming God’s love, we welcome everyone regardless of race, color, sexual identity, social, or economic background; in fact, we believe that our diversity reflects the tapestry of God’s creation.

Wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!
