About Our Church

Our Church History

First church home of Northminster's 139 chapter members in 1959 was a rented storefront building at 203 West Laurel Drive

The Sanctuary and education wing at 315 E. Alvin Drive became home in 1961.  This area of Salinas was undeveloped and outside teh city limits as the time.

The Ministry Center open in August 1998. The Center has dozen classrooms, fellowship hall/gym, large kitchen, large meeting room, and offices.

Our denominational affiliation is the Presbyterian Church (USA), the regional San Jose Presbytery and the Synod of Pacific.

Who We Are

Northminster Presbyterian Church is where people gather as a faith community to worship God at 10:00 AM on Sundays.  While we are a small church, we are close-knit group who are devoted to “Caring for ALL with God’s Love and Grace”.


We are a multi-generational church comprised of families, empty-nesters, and retirees, who love to come together and celebrate our love for the Lord. As a group, we embrace a worship style that is a combination of contemporary with traditional elements.


We would love to meet you in worship or at one of our events. Please look through these pages and find out about us. We have been in Salinas since 1959, growing and learning together. Come and visit us, we want to welcome you!
