Hi, Cindy! 

That is a pretty meaty passage of Scripture! Is there anything in particular you plan to focus on -- a theme or a smaller number of verses? I see the ideas of sacrifice, grace, spiritual gifts, and love as ideas you could choose to focus on. Depending on the age group you are working with, you wouldn't want to do too much at once. 

You could focus on Paul as a letter writer. And here are some other resources about Paul's letters in general. 

Love - some of these ideas on the Great Commandment might work.

Verse 14 talks about blessing those who persecute you, and other ideas that are similar to the Sermon on the Mount

Don't forget to check out our outlines of the What's in the Bible dvd series. The Paul's Letters one could be useful. 

Let us know a bit more about what your goals are for Romans 12 and we can try to give you more ideas!

Thank you for the quick reply! I have to check in with our youth pastor - he put the passage in Planning Center but hasn’t indicated his them. Because it’s Labor Day weekend most likely it’s around “place your life before God as an offering” but that’s just a guess.  I love all of your suggestions and they’ll be a great help for us.  Thanks again!

The middle section of Romans 12 talks about the body of Christ. There is a section here on the body of Christ. It is based on 1 Corinthians 12, but could probably be adapted.
