If you are in High School and looking for a place to hear, learn, and grow in your personal relationship with Jesus Christ, Area 3:16 is the place for you. We are pursuing Jesus through fun events, student leadership training, Sunday evening High School group, camps & service opportunities. We are building a community that supports each other and discovers how amazing living life with Jesus Christ really is. John 10:9-10 says, “Yes, I (Jesus) am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. Wherever they go, they will find green pastures. The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.”
Sunday Nights (September – May)
Our Area 3:16 High School Ministry meets on Sundays from 6-8p in Fellowship Hall (at Fresno First Baptist). This is a time to hang out with friends while learning about Jesus Christ through activities and messages. Invite Friends!
