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.
We invite you to join us on Tuesday mornings (October 12 – December 7, 2021) to enjoy some time being encouraged and inspired in your role as a young mom and woman.
Registrations will open ALL DAY on September 9th, 2021.

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.
My husband Jon and I celebrated six years of marriage this year. We have a two-year-old daughter named Emery, and a son named Eli who was born in May. I enjoy spending time with my family – outside, on family trips, or watching our kids experience new things; DIY projects; decorating our home; organizing; trying new recipes; planning parties; and being with people! When I’m not busy keeping up with our kids (or on mat leave), I work part-time at an orthodontic office where I love meeting and interacting with the families who come to our office. I have attended the MOMs program for the last two years. I’m thankful for the opportunity that this program has given me to meet new people, to be encouraged and refreshed, and to be supported in this new journey through parenthood. My role on the MOMs leadership team is MC, semester planning, and the prayer e-mail.
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.
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.
