In Person Services Beginning Sunday, June 14th
We are excited to announce that starting Sunday, June 14th, we’ll be offering the option to gather at church for those who are healthy and wish to gather.
In accordance with CDC guidelines, this experience will be modified. We will be practicing social distancing and taking the necessary precautions for the safety of our team and guests. We will be continuing to make every effort for our online experience to be the best, therefore our layout will be adjusted in the auditorium to accommodate for cameras and live stream set up. Unfortunately at this time, there will be no kids church, nursery or coffee bar available.
If you aren’t quite ready or able to join us, we invite you to continue to watch online via our live stream on Youtube, Facebook or our website. Kids church will continue to stream online at 10:30am and our main service will follow at 11am. We do encourage families with young children and those within the vulnerable population to stay home and take every precaution.
We love you Northwest and are excited to continue meeting with you both in person and online!

Cares Act Update
On Friday March 23rd 2020, President Trump signed into law the CARES Act, also known as the Keeping American Workers Paid and Employed Act. It is the largest amount of money ($2 trillion) ever spent by a government to:
Pay companies to quickly hire back their workers, and
Triple the amount of unemployment payments to keep everyone's income up until they get rehired.
Northwest will have several of our best financial advisors strategize on how to help us as Northwest Members benefit from this opportunity. We will get more info to you soon. But in the meantime here are the facts so far:
A one time check of $1,200 for each adult will be sent to EVERY adult if your income is $75,000 or less for a single person and $150,000 or less for a married couple.
Plus you'll receive $500 for each child.
If you have not filed your 2018 personal tax return yet, you will need to do so immediately in order to get the $1,200 check as soon as possible.
For those of you who are unemployed:
In Florida, the current state unemployment payment is half of your pay up to a maximum weekly payment of $275. The new law adds $600 to the $275 making the new maximum $875 per week.
Please contact the State of Florida immediately to apply for unemployment benefits at: www.connect.myflorida.com
or call: 1-800-681-8102 (Monday - Friday 7:30AM to 6:30PM, and Saturday and Sunday 8AM to 2PM)
