Mabey Memories

The desire of my heart is to become the person God dreams of and share those dreams with others; to unleash personal and corporate creativiy within the church, overflowing it with passion and freedom while searching for the face and character of God.

Volleyball tournament

Pathway Community Church held its first ever volleyball tournament at Mae Stecker Park in Shelby township. 9 Teams showed up ! We had a great time! gave away free food and got the Pathway name out there. This one was in June and we have since then held one more at Dodge Park in Sterling Heights and have another one scheduled in August.

Small group worship

How many people can you fit under that tent on a rainy day?

Showers anyone?



Ypsilanti tournament with the Romeo Raptors- back in June I think:)

This was a tough tournament- the boys played hard but we were not very successful- If I remember correctly, it was like 6 games in two days- and we only won 2! But they had fun as you can tell:)

It was also the night Matt had to leave from Ypsi to go to Fort Wayne and the boys and I came home to a dark house- a thunderstorm/tornado came through while we were gone and we had no power when we returned- we had to borrow a generator and run the fridge and the sump pump for three days, we also had to go to the Laundromat for three days what a bummer that was-

Cherry Season @ Westview

Aaron had basketball practice prior to a tournament but the other 3 boys
and I took advantage of the abundance of Cherries and went picking......
They were sweet! This was actually about a month ago but I am just now getting
caught up-

Don't they look great? I meant the cherries but the boys look pretty good too~
Matt and I have been talking about Zach getting into to modeling- who knows it could pay for college:)

Wordless Wednesday

The Korean War Memorial- DC



Over the past year, Joelle and I have run into many of you who have asked, "So what are you doing?" Well here is a chance to catch up on our lives!

We have had the opportunity over the past six months to partner with Jim and Renee Miller in helping to start Pathway Community Church, a startup church located in Sterling Heights. This Sunday we will have a preview service, in anticipation of our first public service on September 21st.

I (Matt)will be speaking this Sunday, and would like to invite you to join us. As it will be my first time to speak in over a year, it would be great to see some familiar faces, and to meet some of those who have expressed an interest to Joelle and I in what PCC will be like.

Here's the info:
When: Sunday, July 20, 10:00 am (Come early for coffee and donuts+ fruit etc.).
Where: Instructional Resource Center - 53 South to Hall Road East to Schoenner South. Make a Michigan left onto Canal (East). The IRC is on your left on Canal. It looks like a small school.

We would love to see you there! Write back if you need more info.

Matt and Joelle
