Episcopals are old style liturgical. "Catholic Lite"

Seventh Day Adventists are Sabbath Keepers who aren't much different than other fundamentalist churches except for their "dietary gospel", the Sabbath keeping, and the fact that they are extremely insular.

There are so many denominations. Southern Baptist, 7th Day Adventist, Roman Catholic, Jehova's Witness, Mormon, Episcopalian, Pentecostal, Unitarian, Christian Science, Lutheran, Methodist, etc, etc, etc.

None of these differences matter from God's perspective. I think you should just go to the one where you feel comfortable.

Episcopals are what we would term Anglicans here.
Generally high church, and Anglocatholic in nature, what the Church of England were originally all about before Evangelicals and Fundamentalists came to prominence.
Seventh Day Adventists are a different group altogether, and whilst have studied their theology, do not know enough about them beyond the Saturday Sabbath worship to comment. (have rarely come into contact with them in real life)
They were definitely originally a Protestant group though, with the same Protestant Ten Commandments etc.

Seventh-day Adventists are just people, same as everyone else. They believe that the Ten Commandments actually consist of Ten Commandments rather than nine. They attend church on Saturday. Many are vegetarians and adhere to a 'health message but many are not and don't. They believe in the soon coming of Jesus Christ. Depending on the church, services, music and message are basically the same in content as non-Adventist churches and certainly more 'Jesus-centered' than some. Besides a belief that the Sabbath (Saturday) still remains for the people of God there's really not a whole lot of difference between they and mainstream Christianity. As said, they're people, just like everyone else.

If the differences don't matter, why do they separate one from the other? The differences seem to matter to them. All of them are deluded blind-faith Bibliolatrous factions, which leads to their confusion and unwillingness to collect money together (collecting money being the one goal they never forget even though they already have a tax-code that favors them just for being themselves without having to file much of anything near what non-profit organizations do).

...someone who advents on the 7th day?

Does that mean that they didn't exist on the previous 6 days?

7th-day Adventist.

Here's the breakdown. 7th-day = refers to the biblical Sabbath which this group, unlike most of mainstream Christianity, actually 'remembers' as per the 4th-command.

Adventist = refers to the soon coming of Jesus Christ which this group of people believes is 'even at the door'.
