From the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, to the pine forests along the Alabama-Florida state line, the Marianna-Panama City District includes the eastern panhandle counties of Gulf, Calhoun, Jackson, Bay, Washington, Holmes, and much of Walton County in Florida. Within the bounds of the District, there are 70 United Methodist Churches served by 60 full and part-time pastors. Our churches vary in size from a membership of 5, to more than 2000.


Although different in the size of their membership, the Marianna-Panama City District is filled with loving, welcoming, vital congregations who would love for you to become part of their local family of God. 


Our goal within the District is to make vital congregations who in turn make disciples of Jesus Christ. We want to be “seven day a week” churches, not only ministering to the needs and spiritual welfare of our members, but people who move the church beyond the walls of the building and into the world where we can make a difference for the Kingdom of God.
