Our Weekend and the Virus

We have been anxious to gather with friends for an extended period of time in order to celebrate what the Lord has done for WWE over the past 30 years, but we have been unsure of when to do that in light of Covid-19.  We are trusting God that by September 10-12, 2021 we will be able to meet together and all will be fine.


By faith, we have booked a great place. However, we have not been able to reserve as many rooms as we had wished. Therefore, if you want to be with us, you need to register soon. 


We will constantly revisit what is happening with the virus and take heed to any mandated group restrictions. If, at that time, we feel our gathering together could potentially bring harm to anyone, we would cancel the event and all your money would be refunded.



At the present time, masks are optional for guests at Chetola while staff are still required to wear them.
