"The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life."

John 4:14

The Lutheran Church of the Incarnate Word is located on the original and ancestral homelands of the Hodenosaunee and Onondowaga peoples who were the first to love, pray, grow, celebrate, cry, drum and sing upon this land and place. We give thanks for their presence here since time immemorial. In holy love, let us also recognize and honor all our indigenous siblings who have and continue to call this land their home.
