Hillary Rodham Clinton is helping to celebrate the 200th anniversary of a Methodist church where her family attended services during Bill Clinton's presidency.

The Democratic presidential candidate says on Sunday Foundry United Methodist Church was a place where her family could worship in Washington outside the commotion of daily White House life.

She says at the church, "We were not the first family. We were just our family."

She was joined by husband Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton.

It comes as Clinton's campaign has struggled with questions about her use of a private email server and a challenge from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Clinton says scripture teaches the need to make it possible for people to discover and use their gifts from God and live up to their potential.
