The Six Measures Initiative is GracePoint’s way of loving and serving our members who are in need. During this current COVID-19 lockdown, we are offering grocery vouchers of values between $50-$200 to individuals and families.
The application process is very simple. If you have any questions, you are welcome to reach out to Reverend Elliot who will be more than happy to provide assistance (firstname.lastname@example.org).
How can I get involved?
Any member at GracePoint is welcome to apply for this support. If you are unsure of your membership status, please feel free to reach out to your Campus Pastor (Lidcombe, Burwood, and Granville) who will be able to give you more information.
We want to encourage everyone at GracePoint to be on a lookout for those within our faith family who may be in need. Six Measures is first and foremost an exercise of pastoral care. We are people trying to help people. Therefore, if you become aware of individuals and families who may be in need and who could benefit from this, please inform them of this initiative, encourage them to apply, or speak with your Campus Pastor who will be able to support them.
The Six Measures Initiative also depends on your generosity. Therefore, if you, your family, or your Community Group feel moved to give financially to this, please contact Elliot who will be able to make the appropriate arrangements.
How does it work?
If you are an applicant, all you have to do is complete the form below. This will then be reviewed by the pastors of GracePoint and we endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible. When this process is completed, you will receive this grocery voucher through email which you can either 1) print out or 2) use digitally (it will include a voucher number and pin which you can use like a debit card. Please let us know if you require additional instructions on how to use this).
After that, our church’s Membership Pastor (Pastor Thomas) will also get in contact to journey with you and support you/your family through this season.
About Six Measures
The expression "Six Measures" comes from Ruth 3:15. In this account, Ruth is sent away with the promise of fulfilment through a guardian-redeemer, and she is also given material provisions that meet her needs in abundance. This story is one of many in the Book which emphasizes the theme where emptiness is met with fullness. Our hope is that this initiative will meet the immediate material needs of our community while also pointing them to the hope of fullness that is completely found in Jesus Christ.
