A local Springfield MOPS group is about meeting new mothers and being support for each other.

 

Here at MOPS, we are on a mission to celebrate motherhood. We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own cities, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of being a mom. This is motherhood, and together we can change the world in all the best ways.

 

There is a teacher at each meeting that watches the children. We hope you'll join us!

With the assassin dead, attention turned to nine individuals who would eventually be put on trial for their involvement, with four paying the ultimate price.

 

Lincoln assassination researcher Dave Taylor will delve into the lives and actions of the four conspirators who helped plot the death of Abraham Lincoln and then followed him to the grave.
