Peace Through Change
Romans 8:28 states,
“We know that God works all things together for good for the ones who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
Wow! This scripture brings such peace– no matter the details or circumstances of our lives. God works all things together for good. Join us in praying for this assurance, that only comes from God, over all of our campers, volunteers, and donors.
Only You provide peace that overwhelms our fears. Your presence assures us that You are helping us and bringing us peace. We know that You are always working for our good because You are good and You tell us this in your word. No matter the events of our lives, You are working. Help us to feel your peace and remember that we are called according to your purpose. Help us to remember that You work all things together for good.

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 week-long camp settings and weekend retreats. 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!
