  • Community help available

    FPC has participated in the City of Ashland Safe Parking program since August 2019.  We have overnight parking spots available for those who are experiencing homelessness. If you are in need of safe parking, you may request a spot by calling the OHRA Community Resource Center at 541-631-2235.

    First Presbyterian has a Little Free Pantry, located on Clark Ave. near the steps to the parking lot. Feel free to leave non-perishable food for others—or take what you need. Supplies are replenished often, so check back if you are hungry. If you are a resident of this area, you may also find more food supplies at the Ashland Emergency Food Bank, located on Clover Lane.

    Our church office can help you in an emergency with bus tokens, gas money, or snack vouchers. These are available during office hours. Occasionally, funds run low, in which case a note will be posted on the office door. 

    If you have medical questions about COVID, Dr. John Sager is available to answer your questions by email (jsag03@gmail.com). You don't need to be a patient of his, and the advice is free of charge.
