Obama to attend Easter service in Washington

Washington churchgoers should take a close look around the pews on Sunday morning -- because they might be sitting a few rows away from President Barack Obama.

Obama, who has largely avoided attending church in the Washington area, will attend an Easter service in the city this Sunday, an aide said.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Obama, who is Christian, will attend a church for the holiday, but he declined to say which church the president will visit.

When Obama fist took office, a number of churches in the region hoped he and his family might join their congregations, but thus far they have not attended any one service regularly.
