President Obama and his family are reportedly searching for a new church home in Washington, D.C. Many of the area's faithful are watching closely, while others hold out hope that perhaps the Obamas will choose to worship at their congregation.

Two of the region's religious leaders — The Rev. Dean Snyder, of Foundry United Methodist Church, once attended by the Clinton, and the Rev. Michael Murphy, of People's Congregational United Church of Christ — discuss what might factor into the Obamas' decision.
