AWANA GRAND PRIX AND SPONSOR INFO
Save the date for the Awana Grand Prix – Wednesday, March 27. To help all clubbers to race, we need sponsors. For each $10 donated, one clubber will receive their own car to design, decorate, and race. We want this to be so much more than just a financial gift, though. Each sponsor will be paired with their driver(s) and asked to pray for them throughout the rest of the Awana club year.
If you are unable to donate you are encouraged to be a prayer sponsor and get paired with a clubber who purchased their own car, or team with someone who financially supported multiple clubbers.
This Sunday, March 10, will be the primary day for sponsorship and prayer commitments. Come to the table in the foyer before and after the 9:30 Main Session to sign up to sponsor a Grand Prix driver! For more information please contact Scott Meyers: s.meyers@fbcrichland.net or 509.727.2727

Lay Me Down
Healer
Mighty to Save
Yes I Will

Lay Me Down

Verse 1

With this heart open wide
From the depths from the heights
I will bring a sacrifice

Verse 2

With these hands lifted high
Hear my song hear my cry
I will bring a sacrifice
I will bring a sacrifice

Chorus

I lay me down
I’m not my own
I belong to You alone
Lay me down lay me down
Oh hand on my heart this much is true
There’s no life apart from You
Lay me down lay me down
(Oh lay me down lay me down)

Verse 3

Letting go of my pride
Giving up all my rights
Take this life and let it shine
Take this life and let it shine

Bridge

It will be my joy to say
Your will Your way
It will be my joy to say
Your will Your way
It will be my joy to say
Your will Your way always

Healer

Verse 1

You said if we believe
Then greater things would come
So pour Your Spirit out
Like a river like a flood

Deliver every heart
Body soul and mind
All the darkness bows
Before the feet of Christ

Chorus

The Healer’s in this place
The Healer’s in this place
Jesus You are moving in our praise

There’s freedom in Your name
There’s freedom in Your name
Jesus You are Healer in this place

Verse 2

You said if we believe
We would see Your kingdom come
So pour Your Spirit out
Come and let Your will be done

You’ve defeated death
And You remain our living hope
We believe Your Word
You’re the God of miracles

Bridge

Let the blind see all Your glory
Let the dead rise testifying
There is power in the mighty name of Jesus
Let the mourning turn to dancing
Fear is silenced in our praising
There is power in the mighty name of Jesus

Ending

There is power in the mighty name of Jesus
There is power in the mighty name of Jesus
There is power in the mighty name of Jesus

Mighty To Save

Verse 1

Ev’ryone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Ev’ryone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

Chorus 

Saviour He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

Verse 2

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Ev’rything I believe in
Now I surrender

We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King

We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King

Yes I Will

Verse 1

I count on one thing
The same God that never fails
Will not fail me now
You won’t fail me now
In the waiting
The same God who’s never late
Is working all things out
You’re working all things out

Chorus

Yes I will lift You high
In the lowest valley
Yes I will bless Your name
Yes I will sing for joy
When my heart is heavy
All my days yes I will

Bridge

I choose to praise
To glorify glorify
The name of all names
That nothing can stand against

Tag

For all my days
Yes I will
