WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are attending Sunday services at an African Methodist Episcopal church near the White House.

Metropolitan AME bills itself as "the National Cathedral of African Methodism."

During morning prayers, the congregation was asked to remember the people of Tucson, Ariz., where a gunman went on a shooting spree last weekend that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including a congresswoman.

The congregation also sang birthday wishes to the first lady, who turns 47 on Monday.
