At First Baptist Church of Panama City, we are passionate about making disciples that make disciples. We want to teach the body of believers at FBCPC to think and act like Christ. We provide opportunities for people to engage with the Bible, learning more about who they are in Christ, leading them to service and a greater love for God and for others.
Our discipleship opportunities take place throughout the week on a variety of subjects to help you navigate through life. Classes are open to anyone who wishes to attend. Membership is not required, and workbook cost should never prevent someone from participating in a class. We strongly encourage you to find a class whether you are just beginning your discipleship journey or you need some encouragement and strengthen along your way.

MEN’S BIBLE STUDY

"The Quest" Women's Bible Study
Linda Sims 9:30-11:00AM Chapel
(Begins Tuesday, January 9th) The Quest: An Excursion Toward Intimacy with God by Beth Moore - Curiosity is hardwired in humanity. In this study, delve into Scripture to explore how God created us to seek after Him—a God who desires to be found and known. In this lifelong quest of faith, learn to develop your intimacy with Him and embrace the adventure that comes with living a life for God.
THE TWO-EDGED SWORD
9:30-11:00 AM Room: 101D
Women’s study. A two-edged sword left in the attic or on a shelf does not help the owner very much. All of us need peace and power daily, but if we aren’t in the Word every day, where are we getting our strength? Join us as we encourage one another to read through the Bible, to journal as the Lord speaks to us through His Word, and to memorize a few nuggets more precious than gold.
Since we have several options on Wednesdays, we divided them into three categories. Use the buttons to jump to the CORRESPONDING section.
Fight the Good Fight 1 Timothy
In 1 Timothy, we see instructions from Paul to Timothy his "true son in the faith." Paul encourages Timothy to "love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, ". Paul is teaching his protégé how to live a godly life in and outside of the church. He knows his time is short and wants to prepare Timothy to take over his ministry. We can look at Paul's instructions and apply them to our lives today.
This workshop series will be a time to encourage and equip parents (and grandparents!) to do devotions as a family. It's not always easy in the midst of our busy lives but being intentional about discipleship in our homes is both a fulfillment of God's command to us as parents (Deuteronomy 11:18-21) as well as a foundation to create a lasting legacy of faith. You can hear from other families in our church share what their time of devotion is like and we will provide you with information, ideas, and resources. Whether you are looking to start doing devotions as a family or are needing some new ideas to incorporate into your family time, we hope you will join us for this very special event!
