400th Anniversary of the First Thanksgiving

This year we celebrate the 400th anniversary of the first Thanksgiving. In 1620, a small group of Christians, led by the Holy Spirit, found their way to what is now Plymouth Massachusetts to plant a church! Yes, this courageous group of men and women wanted to establish a Christian outpost in the new world. It was an incredible voyage, followed by a challenging winter where half of these brave believers perished. But by the fall of 1621, the survivors not only stabilized, but had forged a relationship and introduced Christianity to the Native Americans whose land they occupied. They all came together and marked this accomplishment with a feast to celebrate and give thanks to God.

Fast forward to 2021. Instead of the unity with our neighbors that the first thanksgiving celebrated, we find a world divided and people at odds with one another. Instead of looking UP to God for guidance and to give thanks like our ancestors did, we look left or right where we find distrust, disharmony, and misinformation. Now more than ever before, we need the intercession of our Father to lead us out of this darkness and into the light. We need to pray regularly, fervently, and with purpose and ask for God’s help.

At noon on October 2 at the Monument to the Forefathers in Plymouth, the location of the first Christian outpost in the new world, we will pray together and ask God to heal our country. Pastor Greg Winslow, descendant of Edward Winslow’s family, who was one of the Christians who arrived on the Mayflower, will lead this historic gathering of Mayflower descendants and Native Americans to pray for unity and healing for all nations under the Gospel, as the Native Americans and new settlers did on that First Thanksgiving . He will be joined by:

• Pastor Negiel Bigpond — Apostle of Morning Star Church of All Nations

• Hurón Claus — President/CEO of Chief Inc

• William Federer — Author and Radio Host

• Pastor/Historían Paul Jehle-Historian and Senior Pastor of New Testament Church

This event is the latest in a series of prayer gatherings sponsored by If My People-New England, an organization dedicated to bringing peace and healing based on 2 Chronicles 7:14:
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
We invite you to join us In Plymouth, Massachusetts’s for this clarion call to humble, pray, seek and turn once again towards the Lord.
It’s time to return again to God in prayer, as they did during the first Thanksgiving, and see God heal our land.
