Guru Nanak Sikh Society of Delaware Valley (GNSS-DV) is a Religious, Not-for-Profit, Tax Exempt Corporation incorporated in the State of New Jersey.
GNSS-DV is the oldest Sikh organization in the Tri State areas of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. It was first started as a Pennsylvania corporation in 1974. The religious services in those days were held only on Sundays in the houses of the congregation (Sangat) members. There was no permanent Gurdwara (Sikh place of Worship). In 1987, an old Men's Club building was purchased by the society in Deptford Township, NJ and was converted in to a permanent Gurdwara. Since then, the Deptford Gurdwara is open seven days a week to all, irrespective of caste, color, creed or race. Formal Religious Services are conducted every Friday evening and Sunday morning to afternoon, per timings listed in the Prayer Service section.
The Primary goal of the GNSS-DV is to establish and maintain a Gurdwara in the Delaware Valley for holding Religious, Educational, and Cultural congregations to disseminate the principles of Sikhism. It's mission is to promote social, cultural, and inter-religious understanding based on peace, love, justice, truth, and harmony as preached by the Ten Sikh Gurus and the divinely revealed Sikh scripture Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
