I would try royal icing-the one that's hard like rock. glue pieces together with royal like you would a gingerbread house. Just thinking out loud. I never tried it.

pipe a border and fill in with thinned royal it should level itself. I also would use the old time royal made with real egg whites it is more sturdy since no one will be eating the church pieces. make your pieces kinda thick.
