Jimmy Carter attends Ebenezer Baptist Church service

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter, former first lady Rosalynn Carter, and dozens of members of the Carter family attended worship service at the church where Martin Luther King Jr. once preached.

News outlets report more than 40 members of the Carter family joined the congregation for the last Sunday morning service of the year at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church.

The Rev. Raphael Warnock said it was an honor to host the 94-year-old former president of the United States.

Jimmy Carter said he was happy to be back at Ebenezer, which he called a "mother church" for Baptists. He says his grandson Jason Carter and his family are members at Ebenezer.
