“Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness!
Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!”
Here at First Federated we value worship above everything else. That is not because we have the greatest musicians, the best music, or even the greatest facility. We value worship above everything else because worship is intrinsically woven into the foundation of who we are as followers of Christ. Worship is not some outward façade that fulfills one of God’s requirements. No, worship is an outward expression of an inward love of God, and can be applied to every aspect of our lives.
We encourage you to read this article by John Piper, found of Desiring God, on what worship truly is!
How Do I, As a Christian, Worship God?
What Can I Expect at a Worship Service?
This is a difficult question to answer. That is simply because it changes from week to week. Each week our pastors strive to present a truth from God’s Word throughout our worship service. That is our only aim. With that being our goal, our worship services can look different week from week. You will find us singing a variety of Christian music – contemporary, hymns, and everything in between. You may see dance, poetry, special music, or another creative element. However, each week we can guarantee these three things:
1. Corporate Worship Focused On Our Heavenly Father
2. Biblical Truths Presented Through the Teaching of God’s Word and Through Interactive Worship
3. Fellowship with Followers of Christ Who Are Striving to Grow in Their Relationship With God
We have put together a Spotify playlist of songs that we commonly use in our worship, feel free to check it out.

We have an amazing group of people who dedicate themselves to leading our body in worship every week. We take it seriously, and strive to lead our congregation to the throne of God, and seek to remove ourselves from the spotlight. This is simply because in worship our worship leaders are not performers, but prompters for the congregation to worship God. If you are musically gifted, or gifted to work within our media team, we’d love to have you join us! All you have to do is fill out the form on the sidebar above!
