Madinah Community Center
The Madinah Community Center was founded in 1995. It serves as a mosque, officially titled Masjid Us-Sunnah, school, and social gathering place for the Muslim community. It is one of four, thus far (the community is slowing growing), Muslim organizations in the city. The number of members of the Center has increased over the years, prompting the effort to build a new Islamic center which began in 2012. Construction will begin in 2017 at 6510 Watts Rd., which is located not far to the west along highway 14. The new building will include a gym, school, and an area for women and children.
