“Christianity facing the White House”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

such a historic Christian landmark where All Presidents had prayed especially on difficult days. The door was opened when my whole family entered and felt with pride being American and Christian

“Church of the Presidents”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Located just across the street from Lafayette Square and very near the White House, every sitting president has gone to at least one service here. There's even a special pew set aside, which you can sit in (as long as the president's not there, of course).

“Small Gem”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

If you are around the White House or the Renwick Gallery, stop by this church, known as "The Presidents' Church." It was designed by Benjamin Latrobe.

“Ghost of Abe Lincoln might be here, so avoid it!”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

Just kidding! This old historic church founded by Hugenots across from the White House at Lafayette Square is worth visiting and attending a service there. The lunch time service is especially sweet. This church is a member of The Episcopal Church, so be warned.

Across the street from the White House. Nice and small. Every president stops here -- why not you?
