    There was one of these I had a little difficulty answering - so I didn't mark it. For the "standing when you want to sing in worship (whether others are standing or not)", I didn't mark it but I prefer to stand during worship. Sometimes I will kneel but most of the time I will stand unless others are not standing in the congregation. In our church, we always stand for worship unless we're doing something else at the same time. Sometimes we'll do a congregational song during the passing of the elements of communion and standing would be more difficult during that time and for the benevolent offering (offering after communion used for the needy). But as soon as the coast is clear, we'll be told to stand again (LOL).

    If we're in small groups, some of us stand, some of us will sit and some will kneel depending on their ability and heart at that time.

    The other things I will do is to clap my hands, raise my hands, say Amen, sway/move to the music (hey, I tend to sway/move anyway - I'm a mom!), and give an offering. I won't stand when I agree with the pastor because that would be distracting in our church but I will say a quiet (or loud if the time is appropriate) Amen. I don't stomp my feet - I've never seen that (but I'll TAP my feet to the music) and I don't play an instrument. That's DH's department being the worship leader and all. ;)

    We generally stand to sing, sit to pray and for the sermon, there is an offering box at the back of the church and we put our offering in there. I have never heard anyone say AMEN at this Church , but sometimes I`m bursting to say it. I often say it in my head though.
