Great Adventure Bible Timeline Seminar: Join in "Great Adventure Bible Timeline Seminar With Jeff Cavins" from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 30, at St. Mary Church, 10307 Dundee Road, Huntley. Cavins, renowned Catholic author and biblical scholar who has unlocked the mystery of the Bible for thousands of people, is coming to the area to present his Bible Timeline Seminar. According to Cavins, many Christians pick up their Bibles, resolving to read them cover to cover, only to become frustrated after a month or so because they have lost the story. The Great Adventure focuses on teaching people to learn narrative books of the Bible before they begin a deeper study of scripture. The cost for the one day seminar is $35, which includes all materials and lunch. Space is limited, so call Janet Marmion at (847) 669-3137, ext. 101, or e-mail at
