WASHINGTON (AP) ? President Barack Obama and his family are attending a worship service at a church just across the street from the White House where presidents frequently have visited.

The president, first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia made the short walk across Lafayette Park to St. John’s Church.

One of the pews at the Episcopal church has a small brass plaque designating it as “The President’s Pew.” Church history claims that every president since the nation’s fourth chief executive, James Madison, has visited.
