Learn About Our Church
Federated since July 2, 1914
We are called Federated because on July 2, 1914, Columbus' Congregational and Presbyterian churches joined in an effort to serve as one congregation. Our faithful federation continues today!
For over 100 years, Federated Church has proclaimed God's grace in word and deed. We are committed to go into our new century in the Spirit of Christ! Read More
We Are Passionate About Community
The Federated Church is a group of Christians bonded together for the purpose of communicating with Christ and with each other. Our objective is to learn about and to extend the teachings of Jesus Christ to our members and the community through word and deed.
Our concern is for the welfare of humanity both spiritually and physically. We strive for a healthy relationship of people to God and people to people. We seek to respond to the Gospel and to the needs around us. With God's grace we can make an effort toward providing for the individual, church, and community needs, while continuing to support national and world missions.
“We are called to nurture growing relationships with God by following the example of Jesus Christ”
Meet Our Pastor
Rev. Dr. Annika Lister StroopeSenior Pastor
I began serving as the senior pastor of Federated Church in May 2012. I love Federated’s history as a congregation of both the United Church of Christ and the Presbyterian Church (USA) and Federated’s commitment to serve its community and beyond. My favorite part of Federated’s mission statement is: "we are called to offer extravagant welcome in the name of Jesus Christ."
