Why are they(not only Clinton and Obama) using this strange term instead of the much more well known term?
I think they did that because they are afraid, many far right figures use islamist terror attacks against Christians as justification for their anti muslim agenda and they don't want to feed into that. But I think hiding behind ambiguous words is the wrong responds.

Perhaps, or maybe they said Easter worshippers because the attack happened on Easter. I disagree with the idea that the term is more ambiguous because like you said the only people who would be worshipping in a church on Easter would be Christians.

We will never know what their real intent was but if they just used "Christian" nobody would have a problem with that and the far right wouldn't have the munition to produce a outrage.

I think many liberals and lefties are overly careful when it comes to terrorist attacks commited by non white persons and extremist ideologies in non white communities.
