    I am wondering how much success people have had with this. I can advertise in a pretty large local church for 13 weeks (a weekly news letter) for $190.

    For only $190 I would give it a shot, mid March thru mid June.
    How big of Ad do you get ? No thanks to 1" x 1" .

    To place Ad in my Church annual directory would cost me over $400. I said no thanks.

    Good luck

    I've never advertised in a Church, but if I were you, I might spend an afternoon helping the Church landscape group (if they have one) improve any beds, turf, etc. I know my Church has a group that improve some landscaping whenever it needs it, and I bet spring time would be a great time to go put down some mulch or bright flowers that would really get the attention of the Church members. It would really get your name out there and give you a great opportunity to talk to some potential customers at the Church.
