Every Thanksgiving is an annual reminder of our nation’s Christian roots. The Pilgrims began the tradition, and Presidents Washington and Lincoln made it an official holiday.
The details surrounding the Pilgrims were such that they had much to be grateful for.
The Pilgrims were a small assembly who secretly became a congregation in central England in 1606 when they formed a spiritual covenant with one another.
Because of persecution for those who would not conform with the Church of England, they emigrated to Holland for about 11 years. Eventually, they decided to come to British North America, to sail to the “Northern parts of Virginia,” after the permanency of the Jamestown settlement, so that they could worship Jesus Christ in total freedom.
The very first Thanksgiving in October of 1621 these pilgrims gave thanks to God for the freedoms they shared to worship Him without persecution.
Thanksgiving to God for all His blessings, should be one of the most distinctive marks of us as believers, and as such Pastor Terry will present to us 4 reasons why we should be thankful.
Join us as Terry present a special Thanksgiving message he has entitled, “How To Be Thankful In All Things”.
