What to Expect at First United Methodist of Panama City (FUMC-PC)

Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Panama City! Our church as well as our city are still in recovery from Hurricane Michael. We are functioning out of our Community Life Center and Trinity Center while our Sanctuary is being rebuilt. Nevertheless we have some of the best people who create a loving and caring atmosphere that help us carry out our mission for Christ. Our mission statement is “sharing Christ’s love with each other and the world.


We currently have five services on Sunday morning. We are limiting participants in the services to meet safely during these times of Covid-19. We have three traditional services at 8:15am, 9:30am and 10:45am. These services meet in our Community Life Center. We also have two contemporary services that meet at 9:30am, and 10:45am. These services meet in our Trinity Center. We ask that you sign up to attend so we can make sure we can keep everyone safe!

Sunday Morning’s with Children

Our nursery is open for children under 3! The nursery is located in our main building in the preschool area. If you have questions about the nursery you can email Mrs. Terri at terri@fumc-pc.org.

We have provided children’s church for children age 3 to 2nd grade, at this time however, due to Covid-19, we are asking that children stay with their families in the service. It is hard to keep children social distant when we gather them together. For the safety of all, and to abide by guidelines set by our state, we ask for them to stay in the chairs with you on Sunday morning.  If you have any questions about Children’s Church you can contact our Children’s Director, Alison at alison@fumc-pc.org.


There are many different parking areas around the church. We have parking available off of Business 98 in front of our Community Life Center. There is also some parking available on the other side of the Community Life Center off of E. 4th Street. There is a parking lot across from the church off of E. 4th Street, if you turn on S. Palo Alto you can turn into the parking lot. Lastly, we have parking in front of our Trinity Center which is located on the east side of the campus off of Bontia Ave.
