The Sikh Gurudwara of North Carolina
The Sikh Gurudwara of North Carolina (SGNC), as an organization, came into being in 1983. A group of Sikh families in North Carolina realized a need to establish a Gurudwara in our state where we could establish a Sangat and Pangat.
Gurudwara is a Threshold to Divine Illumination. Sangat is where everyone gathers to learn the values of human life, and Pangat is where we practice those values. At The Sikh Gurudwara of North Carolina, we strive to learn the Sikh Faith as taught by Guru Naanak Ji.
The Gurudwara facilities were inaugurated in 1986, and this white brick building has served our community since then. The congregation meets every week, and we learn and sing the Glory of God, and we share our blessings with others.
Our mission is simply to provide the facilities in the state of North Carolina for the learning and the practice of Sikh Faith, and to share information about the Sikh people with the people of North Carolina so that we all can be informed and productive residents of this great Tar Heel state, and the greater United States of America.
Members of our community are professionals in many fields including medicine, engineering, information technology, and education, among others. Our children attend various local univeristies, technical colleges, and grade schools.
If you would like more information about Sikh Faith, please feel free to visit our Gurudwara Saheb during any of the regularly scheduled programs.
