Donald Trump has attended Easter service at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea near his estate in Palm Beach, Florida on Sunday.
The annual ritual for Trump provided a break from a host of foreign policy crises, including escalating tensions with North Korea.
The president attended the service with his wife, Melania, his two younger children, Barron and Tiffany, and the first lady’s parents.
It’s the same church where he and the first lady were married in 2005.

But the Florida weekend has wrapped up, as Donald, Melania, and Barron were seen on boarding Air Force One before heading back to DC on Sunday afternoon.
The trio stopped at the top of the stairs to wave, but it appeared as though Tiffany was not with them for the Washington flight.
The president had been expected to spend the rest of the afternoon with his family participating in annual Easter festivities at Mar-a-Lago, his private club, including brunch and an Easter egg hunt, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said.
It will be a test run of sorts. He and the first lady are set to host the official annual Easter egg roll at the White House on Monday.
The president has yet to attend a church service in the Capitol since his inauguration weekend back in January. The church attendance of past presidents has been a topic of intense interest in Washington.
Trump has been speaking more about faith in recent week, invoking God in his statements.

In his weekly radio address, the president called Easter Sunday “a holy day of reverence and worship” and “a sacred time that fills the spirit of our nation with the faith of our people.”
He also declared, “America is a Nation of believers,” adding that: “As long as we have faith in each other, and trust in God, we will succeed.”
Trump described himself as a “religious person” during his campaign, but often appeared to struggle to affirm his Christian credentials as he worked to woo the Evangelical voters who helped drive him into office.
The president is not the first commander-in-chief to head to Palm Beach for the Easter weekend, with JFK doing so during his time in office.
