New Year, Same God
What a bold and hopeful statement to claim: New year, same God! Our good, good God never changes. Our God has unfailing love for us, unending grace for us, and unstoppable plans for us. This year, and every year, we pray that our campers will come to know and believe these things about our God. His plans are better, His grace is sufficient, and His love is FOREVER.
Join us in prayer that 2024 will be a hopeful year full of healing, laughing, and loving camp! See our specific prayer requests below and get ready to see God move this year!

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!
