— Ce­cil County’s three Sev­enth Day Ad­ven­tist churches will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in a free na­tion­wide pro­gram aimed at help­ing peo­ple un­der­stand the Bi­ble.

“Rev­e­la­tion Speaks Peace” be­gins at 7 p.m. Fri­day at Prov­i­dence Sev­enth Day Ad­ven­tist Church, lo­cated at 3085 Singerly Road in Elkton; Ris­ing Sun Sev­enth Day Ad­ven­tist Church, lo­cated at 402 N. Wal­nut St. in Ris­ing Sun; and Blythedale Sev­enth Day Ad­ven­tist Church, lo­cated at 36 Blythedale Road in Per­ryville. Each ses­sion will last 75 min­utes. Child­care for ages 3 to 11 is also avail­able at each church.

“The kids will par­tic­i­pate in ac­tiv­i­ties, crafts, mu­sic and lessons,” said The Rev. Rick Christman, pas­tor of Prov­i­dence SDA Church.

Mean­while the adults will dig deep into the scrip­tures with a teacher at each lo­ca­tion. Christman said more than 60 churches are of­fer­ing the pro­gram in the re­gion. He said the sem­i­nar will be use­ful to any­one re- gard­less of af­fil­i­a­tion or ex­pe­ri­ence in Bi­ble study.

“Whether they’ve been a Bi­ble stu­dent their whole life or just want to learn more, you’ll learn how to nav­i­gate the Bi­ble and gain prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tion,” he said.

All ma­te­ri­als are pro­vided at the sem­i­nar in­clud­ing a Bi­ble and study notes. Christman said those who pre-reg­is­ter will also re­ceive a DVD called “The Daniel Chron­i­cles.”

To reg­is­ter for the sem­i­nars, go to http:// www.rev­e­la­tion­speak­s­peace2016.com/ and visit the lo­ca­tions tab to con­nect with Prov­i­dence, Ris­ing Sun or Blythedale. Those with­out a com­puter can call 1-844-668-2000.

Over the three-week sem­i­nar, stu­dents will learn about the prophe­cies of Daniel and Rev­e­la­tion and the end time events re­ferred to in Matthew.

“God’s not want­ing to scare peo­ple,” Christman said. “There’s a bless­ing and prom­ises. God wants to re­veal His love and as­sur­ances to His peo­ple. He wants peo­ple to know that Je­sus is go­ing to be with you at all times. This is an en­cour­age­ment.”
