Hope Commons Book Club

If you find your faith is pushing you to serve your community, you are not alone! The hard part is finding direction. We will be reading some mostly non-religious books together that help us understand the systemic needs of our community. This will open up conversations about how we see our own community of faith making a positive impact on our town.

A Book Club about Serving Others

As part of an effort to help us understand the needs of our community, Pastor Ron has compiled a stack of books that shapes the way he thinks about how the church should engage our community. These are not books written specifically to a Christian audience, but books that challenge the status quo in each field they address. We will be talking about city planning, childhood adversity, homelessness and the like. We will look for ways together to engage our neighborhoods in fresh ways.

Every book we read together will have a hard copy, Kindle, and Audible version available. The Hope Commons Book Club is not about reading books about faith. It is about understanding the world we are called to serve.


Nadine is a Pediatrician who founded a public health clinic in a rough part of San Francisco. Her work and research lead her to other folks encountering the same trends. She found that childhood adversity in the home leads to many adult health risks, like autoimmune disorders, heart disease, addiction and so much more. Are there tangible things we can do to save the next generation?
