    Every group listed except for the AME and Lutheren folks.

    I've also dropped in on two different LDS stake meetings a number of years ago when I was studying Mormon life. Unfortunately, both times I happened to hit "Fast Sunday" where the local stake meeting consisted of testimonies for most of the entire service. (It was a little creepy to hear the same types of emotion-laden testimonies we hear in many of our Baptist churches that ended with "and I then believed that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God." :tear: )

    Over the years I've also attended various "Charismatic" faith-healing meetings put on by traveling charletons, including this one, and I recently attended Passover as the guest of a (non-Christian) Jewish friend.

    When I managed a Christian radio station, I visted several churches of different denominations

    Sure! I have lots of friends who are not Baptist, and they know that I am, but they still invite me to their churches for special events in their lives. I'm flattered to be a part of the occasion. And I invite them to mine, as well. But I no longer go to other churches out of curiosity by myself, like I did when I was younger.

    Love,

    I visit a Southern Baptist church whenever I visit my sister.

    I visit a Independent Baptist church whenever I visit my mom.

    I attend the local Methodist church once a year with our Boy Scouts since they sponsor the troop.

    I attend Catholic churches for weddings and funerals.

    I visited a Lutheran church once as the girl I was dating's mom was one of the pastors (boy, that seemed weird).

    I visited an AoG church once as a good friend's daughter was baptized (even weirder).

    I assumed you meant "visited" for a regular church service/meeting, not just for a special occasion. For me, Methodist would apply either way, and until I was about 8 I was sometimes taken to a Disciples of Christ church, so that's "other," and I went to kindergarten at an Episcopal church day school (we had no public kindergarten), which included chapel, so I included that. Among the other options I have only been 'there' for community meetings of some type or to vote a couple of times, which does not seem what was meant.

    My closest friend in high school was Church of God and I attended church with her several times. My Dad was raised in a CoG orphanage, so his "roots" were in that and I attended with him as he visited an old church when I was about 14--I was scared to death. :)
    Visited Roman Catholic (class project), Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Episcopalian.
