Need help on a history essay question?

the question I’m supposed to respond to is: “in the course of the seventeenth century, New England evolved from a highly religious, community oriented society to a region characterized by rising worldliness, individualism and competitiveness.” Discuss how and why this evolution took place.

This is for a chapter called “The Emergence of Colonial Socities”

Can anyone possibly point me in the right direction with thesis statement ideas? Thanks so much!
