My experience is not so much with writing the churches as in your example but when writing for information -- not always genealogical -- I have found that those who don't respond to the first request may well respond to the third followed by a phone call. The speed and quality of responses I have gotten vary radically. Also, e-mail requests OFTEN get lost in spam bins. A phone call might help them know to fish it out if they thought your e-mail address was a spam one.
