Sun Lakes United Methodist Church (SLUMC) hosts Tuesday Nights Together (TNT), a series of free summer programs on Tuesday evenings in June, July and August. Topics vary from light and entertaining to serious and informing. Everyone is welcome, and admission is free. Each Tuesday event is held at Sun Lakes United Methodist Church, 9248 E. Riggs Road, at 6:30 p.m. in Lindsay Hall.

August 7 – Christopher Columbus: Who was he and did he really discover America? Join Tony Contrabasso, a well-known researcher and speaker in the Sun Lakes area, as he delivers his usual lively presentation on the life of Christopher Columbus, who he was and what he accomplished on his journeys to the “new world.” You will hear a different account of these voyages than you read many years ago from your grade school geography book!

August 14 – Casa Grande National Monument: 650 years of history as a meeting place and landmark. The story of the Casa Grande Ruins goes back further than written history and stretches through decades of change. The Casa Grande Ruins was established in 1892 by order of President Benjamin Harrison and was the first prehistoric and cultural site to be established in the United States. It was formally recognized as the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument in 1992 with 472 acres. Join the National Park Rangers from Casa Grande tonight and learn about this national treasure that is just a short 28-mile drive from Sun Lakes.

August 21 – Hymns We Used to Sing: An Old-fashioned Sing-along! Join Rev. Jim and Martha Wood (and friends) for an old-fashioned hymn sing! Hymns We Used to Sing will feature songs no longer in hymnals! Among the evening’s songfest are “Let the Lower Lights be Burning,” “Bringing in the Sheaves,” “God Lifted Me,” “Since Jesus Came into My Heart” and “I will Sing the Wondrous Story” with a surprise song taught to the participants. You won’t want to miss this inspirational and fun evening!

August 28 – Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies, the latest news and information! Don’t miss the most recent news of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies presented by Ron Sherman. Big changes are happening in commerce, banking, voting, real estate transactions, shipping, transportation and personal security. The technology behind Cryptocurrencies has the potential to rewrite our entire society just like the Internet. Your children and grandchildren could be greatly impacted by these changes. Join us this evening to find out what are these cryptocurrencies, why do we have them and how will they affect our future. For those who have heard an earlier session by Ron, he will include updates that are up-to-the-moment information.
