The Boston Temple Young Adult Forum is a unique fellowship that seeks to meet the spiritual needs of many Boston undergraduate and graduate students, as well as young professionals, who are searching for a more stimulating encounter with God and with their faith community.  Go to Forum page


The Young Adults have partnered with STRIDE for the annual BTYA retreat. 
Join us on April 20-22 at  Camp Winnekeag for a weekend with the young adults. The topic of the weekend will be "Don't hit snooze!" and the inspiration for comes from Romans 13:11

- You know what time it is. It sis time for you to wake up dorm your sleep. The time when we will be taken up to be with Christ is no as far off as when we first put our trust in him. -
