President Obama and Family Celebrate Easter at Historic Alexandria Church

Alfred Street Baptist Church

Thanks to an astute reader, we were the first to report on Twitter that President Barack Obama and his family attended the 10:30 AM Easter service this morning at the historic Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia, a church whose history dates back to 1803 when Thomas Jefferson was President.

Sources tell me, the Church wrote a letter to the Obama’s inviting them to attend today. While the church always has quite a crowd for services, we had wondered about the road closures around the church on Easter Sunday.

The church is led by the Rev. Howard-John Wesley, the eighth Pastor of the historic church and like the Obama’s, he hails from the Chicago area.

The Obama’s have often visited Alexandria while they have been in the White House, visiting Del Ray Pizzeria, the Dairy Godmother, and FireFlies in Del Ray and Vermillion, Restaurant Eve, and Union Street Public House in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia as well as shopping trips to Best Buy and Target in Potomac Yard.
