GroveMOMs is a ministry of Forest Grove Community Church that provides moms of young children with a weekly morning out and an opportunity to connect with other moms. We exist to support moms in community by providing refreshment, encouragement, and the hope that is found in Jesus.

Leadership Team


Hey, I’m Vanessa Dobson. Married to Jamie for 15 years now, mom to Ethan (11), Owen (9), Finley (7), and Maggie (5). I work part time as a nurse on a surgical floor, and spend my days off running my kiddos to activities, volunteering in various church programs, and whenever possible getting out into my garden! I have been involved in the MOMs program at forest grove church for many years now and joining the leadership team has blessed me with friendships that have carried me through the days when I felt like I was in the trenches of motherhood. I am so grateful for this program and so excited to see what these next semesters will bring!! 


Hello!  My name is Jennifer.  I have been married to my husband Landry for 14 years and we have 4 daughters: Harlyn, Suttyn, Loweyn & Everyn.  We as a family love to get outside together, especially on our boat in the summers and recently some skiing in the winters. We have been attending Forest Grove Church for 8 years and I’ve been involved with Grove Moms for almost as long.  Being on the leadership team with this amazing group of women has been spiritually uplifting and so rewarding as Grove Moms has been a crucial part to my growth as a mother and such a blessing to me as a community.  I look forward to these fall/winter/spring semesters and what God will bring to us together. 


Hello! My name is Becky Neufeld and I have been married to my husband, Evan for 7 years. We have 2 daughters – Poppy is 3 and Millie will turn 1 in September! We enjoy travelling, camping, and just being together with family and friends. When not on maternity leave, I work casually as a registered nurse in public health. I have been attending Grove Moms for 3 years now and this is my second year on the leadership team. I have loved getting to know other moms and being able to have open and honest conversations about the wonders and challenges that come with motherhood. Being able to enjoy rest, renewal, and encouragement on Tuesday mornings has been so life-giving since becoming a mom!


My name is Orisha and Steve and I have been married 13 years. Our son, Woodson, will turn 3 and we are expecting baby #2 in January. I am currently working full time as a nurse in ICU. Steve works part time security at the hospital and part time stay at home dad. We share a love of travel and adventure that we hope to pass down to Woods. 


Hi there! My name is Lindy Brown. My husband, Regan, and I have 3 little ladies- Blair (2 years), Callie and Camryn (2 months).  I work as a nurse in the Peds ICU. We live on a cattle farm, and really enjoy doing projects together! Motherhood is a huge transition and complex journey, and I love walking through it with others!


My name is Brita Arndt and I have been married for 8 years to Jordan. We have a 2 year old daughter, Savannah and a 6 month old son, Jack. When I am not on maternity leave I work as an elementary school teacher in Saskatoon. As a family we enjoy travelling, time at the lake, camping and trying our best to soak in the ordinary every day moments with our kids. I have attended Grove Moms since having Savannah and am now excited to be apart of the leadership team this semester. I’ve been so blessed by Grove Moms and thoroughly enjoy having honest and real conversations every Tuesday morning along with lots of laughs. Being able to share in the journey of motherhood with other moms of different stages is so life giving.


Hi! My name is Monica Willms, and I have been married to my husband Scott for 6 years. We have two children  – Tessa (3) and Tanner (1). I work as a Registered Nurse in adult ICU and my husband is an Orthopedic Surgeon (no we did not meet in the hospital!). I spent a few years volunteering in childcare and then was able to attend the program as a mom last year. Through moms group I gained a loving and supportive community, and some wonderful friendships. This is my first year on the leadership team and I am very excited to see where God takes us this semester!
