Music is vital to worship and community.

Because of this, the Music Ministry of First United Methodist Church – Panama City aims to offer rich, engaging worship experiences that are inclusive of the many talents in the community.

From choral ensembles to instrumental ministries, children, youth, and adults alike have ample opportunity to be part of worship at First United Methodist Church.
