...President Bush and his family found their groove at a predominantly black church where a band belted out hymns, worshippers danced, sang and clapped, and the minister preached himself hoarse with a thunderous sermon on Christ.

...Bush, his wife, Laura, former President Bush and his wife, Barbara, attended Lincoln Park United Methodist Church on Capitol Hill. It was the second church he has visited since his inauguration Jan. 20.

...Asked as he entered church Sunday why he chose Lincoln Park, Bush said simply, "It's a good one." He made no remarks to the congregation.

...Former President Bush appeared moved as he left the church. He shook his head and offered a thumbs-up when asked about the service. "Beautiful, beautiful," he said.

...A Methodist church leader recommended Lincoln Park, Johndroe said. He said he could not identify the leader.
