Who are we at First Presbyterian of Ashland?
We are a very diverse community of people called together to "love kindness, do justice and walk humbly with our God." At First Church, you will meet people from all walks of life: college students, professional folk, homeless persons, artists, musicians, young families, octogenarians, children, singles, married, to name a few - and at all stages on the spiritual path.

We have winter shelter on Monday nights from November-April. We help several people every month with food, bus tokens, monthly utility bills. We see ourselves as an important part of the Ashland community. Many of our members serve on community boards and work in service clubs.
