Bringing hope and serving our community

For 28 years, Pastor George Russell and his wife Fran have been providing leadership to the congregation at New Hope Assembly of God Church in Cotati in a myriad of ways, accomplishing their mission of reaching people who are hurting in the community they serve. Now more than ever, after the fires, the community needs a lot of help. The Russells, with the support of their congregation and community, have been able to provide a lot of assistance to fire victims – both in terms of material needs through starting a free store as well as emotional support.
