First Family Attends Easter Service

Annie Leibovitz/Released by White House Photo Office/File(WASHINGTON) -- President Obama and the rest of the first family attended Easter service at a church in northwest Washington, D.C. Sunday.

The president along with wife Michelle, and their two kids Sasha and Malia, attended service at the Shiloh Baptist Church, a historically black church located not too far from the White House. Since moving to D.C. the Obamas have not picked a church to consistently attend, as President Obama said that his attendance would be disruptive to services.

Prior to Sunday’s church attendance, the last time the Obamas attended service was in January just before Martin Luther King Day at the Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church.

In 2010, the first family attended Easter service at Allen Chapel AME in southeast, Washington, DC. The selection of that church was not insignificant, as days before the Obamas made their visit, the neighborhood was shaken by a drive-by shooting that took the lives of four teenagers.
