Chapel Rock Family Ministry Weekend Update for March 21, 2021
Sunday Morning: The Vine/Merge
(for students in 6-12th Grades meeting at 9:15a in ED02)
It’s the final week of our series called Do Something, We've been on a journey through scripture that's helped us see several ways that we are to be engaged in bringing wholeness in the midst of injustice. This week, we’re landing on the challenge that we've all been given in scripture; to never stop doing something about injustice.

SPECIAL NOTE: SPRING BREAK - Because of the spring break schedule we are not meeting for Sunday evening programming (CRUX 678, or Small Groups) this weekend (3/21), or next weekend (3/28).

WEEK ONE [February 28]
Bottom Line: Before you do something about injustice, you have to see it.

WEEK TWO [March 7]
Bottom Line: When you experience injustice, you don’t have to face it alone.

WEEK THREE [March 14]
Bottom Line: God is doing something about injustice.

WEEK FOUR [March 21]
Bottom Line: When it comes to injustice, never stop doing something.
Resources for Small Group Leaders (Grades 6-12):

WEEK ONE [February 28]
Goal Of Small Group: To help students develop the practical skill of noticing injustice around them.

WEEK TWO [March 7]
Goal Of Small Group: To help the entire group choose how they will react when they (or someone in the group) face injustice.

WEEK THREE [March 14]
Goal Of Small Group: To help students brainstorm ways they can join God in His activity on behalf of others.

WEEK FOUR [March 21]
Goal Of Small Group: To help students discover practical ways to be part of a life-long commitment to speaking and acting on behalf of others.


Bottom Line: When it comes to injustice, never stop doing something. 

James 2:15-16 NIV 
James 2:17 NIV 
Galatians 6:9-10a NIV

Create meaningful conversations. Adjust the questions/options as needed, and don’t feel like you need to answer all of them.

Justice is something that’s fair, right, or equal. Injustice is the opposite: something that’s unfair, unequal, or not right.

  • What’s one thing that might motivate someone to keep working against injustice? (Small Group Leader: You may want to refer to the definitions of justice and injustice used in this series to guide this discussion.)
  • What’s one thing that might make someone feel like giving up when working against injustice?
  • What might working against injustice show others about God?

Have your few brainstorm their talents, hobbies, interests, and gifts and how they can use them to address the injustice the group identified in Week 1. Consider starting this conversation by asking the following:

What’s one example of how a middle schooler can use their…
  • Voice against injustice?
  • Influence against injustice?
  • Talent against injustice?
  • Life against injustice?

What’s something you can do on a regular basis to work against injustice?
What’s one thing our group can do together to help those facing the injustice we’ve been learning about?

  • As a group, decide on how you’d like to pray: SGL led, student led, individual, or popcorn. Then, use these prompts to get this prayer time started:
  • Pray that God will change the way you see Him. 
  • Pray that God will show you what it looks like to follow Him. 
  • Pray that God will change the way you see others. 
  • Pray that God will give you the courage to do something about injustice. 

  • When it comes to doing something about injustice, where do you fall on a scale of 1-10? 1 = It is what it is. 10 = I’ll do anything to help!
  • What are the things that might keep us from being a 10 on the scale?
  • Reread James 2:15-16. What are some ways we talk about injustice without actually fighting injustice?
  • Reread Galatians 6:9-10. Why do you think people sometimes begin to fight injustice and give up? What does it look like when someone gives up on fighting injustice?
  • What are some ways you can avoid “growing weary” when you fight injustice? Is that even possible?
  • The fight for justice is ongoing, and exhausting. What are some ways to take care of yourself mentally, spiritually, and physically, before you get to the point of giving up?

How can you personally…
  • Use your voice?
  • Use your influence?
  • Use your talent?

By putting our voices, influences, and talent together, what might our small group be able to accomplish together? What injustice can we help fight?

Try to encourage one another this week to take steps in using their voice, influence, and talent. End by repeating the bottom line:, “Never stop doing something about injustice.”

Be a part of serving our extended community as Mission Indy leads us to help impact the Fairfax neighborhood this summer.

This student mission trip is open to both middle school (entering grades 6-8) and high school (entering grades 9-12) students. Cost in full is $280 per person, but offsetting scholarships are available (through the generous donations of the Chapel Rock church body) and will be included for participants based upon the size of our team. Last year this offset the participant cost in full.
