Prayer Portal – April
Please join us in this prayer for our campers and teens during this season.
You are the God of peace which surpasses understanding. Our campers need this peace now more than ever.
When their minds are full of the cares of the world, please calm their anxieties and soothe their fears.
Give them your peace in their hearts, their minds and their souls.
May they approach each of their days with the assurance that comes only from your peace.
They have nothing to fear when you are with them. If you are for them, who can be against them?
Remind our campers of your presence and your power.
In Jesus’ love,

Onward & Upward is our weekend-long retreats for 13-15 year olds. The retreats use a curriculum focusing on character traits of godly men and women. We began this semi-annual program in 2004 with 39 teenagers and 46 volunteers.
SUMMIT is our weekend-long retreats for 16-18 year olds. The curriculum focuses on skills that will help them function better as adults. Examples include managing bank accounts, completing job applications, & mock interviews. We began this semi-annual program in 2007 with 12 teens and 16 volunteers.
RISE is a weekend-long retreat offered in April for teen boys and November for teen girls, ages 12-18. OFC will continue to use a 2:1 teen to counselor ratio at RISE, and the curriculum and activities are designed to help teens build self-esteem and navigate gender-specific issues.
Our Father's Children exists to provide HOPE to children of abuse and neglect in Texas, ages 6-18, in camp settings, weekend retreats, and in mentoring clubs. We recruit volunteers from a variety of cities, churches and organizations who have a heart for offering these kids hope in Jesus Christ. Whether as a volunteer or donor (or both), we would love to have you join us in providing hope to these kids!
