It is written, “They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor, their righteousness endures forever.”  2 Corinthians 9:8

Those who love the Lord have been given gifts for the benefit of others- gifts of teaching, craftsmanship, music, encouragement, helping, administration, leadership, and more.  We are encouraged to use our gifts to serve those in need.  Panama City Rescue Mission offers many opportunities for individuals, families, and groups of all ages to serve others.

Easter Dinner


Each year volunteers help make Easter extra special for the homeless of Bay County. Rather than providing meals cafeteria-style, Mission officials prefer to make Christian holidays more exciting for clients and volunteers. The Mission’s volunteers decorate the Mission, and serve plates one-on-one to the many needy people that join the Mission for these special events.  More importantly, each year dozens of people make professions of faith in Jesus Christ during the chapel service before the meal!

Operation Warm Heart

An effort we take on each year as an effort to help those on the streets during cold nights…We have some homeless people in our area that for one reason or another refuse to utilize our services and spend their nights on the streets…During the winter…when the temperature drops in the 30′s we take our truck around town to some of the areas in which we know these people stay…we usually have pastries, coffee, blankets and jackets to hand out in an effort to keep them from having difficulty with the weather.
