Typically the federal government deals with issues that affect the nation as a whole, including foreign policies, imposing import/export taxes and declaring war. The Constitution establishes the United States government and lists the powers of each of three co-equal branches. Each branch has powers that check or balance the powers of the others, ensuring no single branch can overwhelm and subsume the others. The states and the people retain any powers not specified in the Constitution.

Of course, the devil is in the details, so one cannot say with any certainty whether the meaning is Owned and operated by a government agency, with government employees running it. Religion and government are like a couple who sometimes have a hard time living together but who find they simply cannot live apart. Religion and government both need their independence in order to flourish, but history has shown that a complete divorce is healthy for neither.
