History
  • In 2003, with the growing Muslim population in Placer county and its vicinities, as well as with the Industrial growth in Roseville, Rocklin, a need for establishment of an Islamic center and a Mosque was realized. The efforts went underway. A room at the, then Sikh Temple was rented and the Juma prayers were started. By the end of 2004, The temple was bought & taken over by the Gathering Inn organization.
  • The congregation has grown steadily since then.
  • In February of 2005, ISPC was registered with the state of California as a Non-Profit Religious, social, welfare and Charity corporation/organization.
  • Later on, a tax exempt status was applied for and granted.
