Sterling Communtiy Center

Fostering, Nurturing, Connecting - Family & Community

The Sterling Community Center is a non-profit organization established in 1953 as the Sterling Community Club, to provide a local school house for the Sterling area children. The current facility was built in 2013 to bring Sterling residents together and to invest in our children, our families, and our future. The facility is open for public use and also available to rent for private or public events. 

The Sterling Community Center features a full-court gym, multipurpose room/library, exercise equipment, and a commercially-equipped kitchen.
