"At Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church, we connected with LFPR in September 2020, and I am so glad that we did! The staff has been friendly, responsive, and creative in helping us to publicize our events to the larger community AND helping us build new partnerships with other organizations in the community. We are a small church. Many churches may feel like they are “too small to afford a PR firm,” but after working with Lesley Francis, I say that any church that wants to reach the community can’t afford NOT to call LFPR!"
