MOMs Program

MOMs 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.

Our Spring 2022 semester is going to look different than what we are used to. We are running a weekly drop-in that consists of getting to know new people, listening to a devotion from a speaker and engaging in discussion around tables. Limited spots available. Check back for a registration link that will be coming soon.


Leadership Team

CLOE

My name is Cloe Wiens. My husband, Kyle and I have been married for 4 years and we have two children, Lukas (2) and Lyla (9 months). As a family we love to go on road trips, play disc golf and spend time with friends. I also serve as a leader at our youth group every Friday night. I have loved getting to know young adults that are on the leadership teams but also love the youth students that we get to hang out with. This is my 4th semester attending MOMs and my 2nd semester on the leadership team. This year, I am taking on the role of registration coordination, communications and treasurer. I’ve been so thankful for the way the MOMs program has helped me in my parenting journey so I am very excited to be a part of the planning and preparation of it all.

VANESSA

My name is Vanessa Dobson and I’ll be working with Janette coordinating childcare.  My husband, Jamie, and I have been married 12 years and have four awesome kids: Ethan (8), Owen (6), Finley (4), and Margaret (2).  Apart from raising the kids I also work half time as a nurse and am taking online courses to upgrade my degree.  Joining the leadership team has been on my heart for a while but with how crazy and busy life is it wasn’t hard to find reasons to let someone else take charge.  The past few semesters I’ve sat at a table with Laurie and seeing her passion for this program and watching the morning sessions evolve under her spirit led leadership has pushed me to step up and out in faith, trusting God to make space and time in my life and use whatever gifts He has given me for his works.  I’m so thankful for the role this MOM’s program has played in my life and am excited to see what God has in store for this next semester.

Heidi

My name is Heidi Stobbe and I’ve been married to Dallas for 12 years. We have four children: Elijah (8) Tyson (6) Everly (5) and Talia (2). We enjoy being outside together biking, exploring, playing sports and being with friends and family. I’ve been attending moms for five years now and it has brought so much life and growth to me. Living in community with other moms being open and honest about the tough and beautiful moments, has meant so much to me and I am so excited to be apart of something so great.
