Common Ground Recovery Community
The faith-based community – more specifically – churches, have a long-standing history of providing space to community-based groups in an effort to allow individuals representative of different backgrounds, groups, and interests to meet, fellowship and help one another. So, when Common Ground Ministries got started in 2009 within the structure and framework of Atonement Lutheran Church, it appeared to be a perfect fit. Speaking with Tom Scornavacchi, he states Common ground Ministries provides educational speaker series, fellowship opportunities, safe space, as well as referral and support for individuals new to recovery and beyond. Common Ground Ministries are currently in two locations – Atonement Lutheran Church in Wyomissing and Holy Trinity Church in Reading. Tom says the work he enjoys the work he does and finds it to be incredibly miraculous in energizing ways.
